We were packing and loading the car am, when Stephen McAdam came to collect his gear and that is the job finished, and we are well satisfied with it.
Off to Edinburgh soon after 12.00, stopped in Moffat for coffee and a scone, then on via A74 and A70 to Norton House Hotel. Met our granddaughter and chatted until dinner time then more talk over dinner. Most of this I didn’t hear so I shall have to enquire about it all when we get home.
I thought the standard of the meal was high except for the sweet which was ice cream. It had a good texture, but no flavour. The starter I had was haggis , neeps and tatties messed about with a bit (chefs can never let anything alone do they ?), but lovely flavours and a good sauce which I wanted to remember – but entirely now forget. Then a piece of baked cod on some vegetablesand sauce which was lovely.
Tomorrow we are to take her to Cramond where she is to take part in a run, but I have no idea what it is all about, except that it seems to be something special.
