We've had an awesome day today. Lovely lie in, followed by breakfast bought by Frazer. Isla had pain au chocolat, Frazer had croissant and jam and I had a cinnamon danish pastry. Lovely!
We went all the way across to Airdrie to go to a bowling alley, because the ones in Edinburgh are ridiculously expensive. It's a good couple of years since we've been bowling. Frazer's really good - he used to play in a league when he lived in Edinburgh, and was meant to when we moved to Peebles, but the last couple of years his back has gone right at the beginning of the season and he's missed out. Isla and I are pretty rubbish, but we do manage to hit the pins most of the time. I even got a strike today - I was ridiculously pleased with myself!
We did a few bits of shopping in Airdrie afterwards, and then came home via Ratho for a carvery. It's a Crown Carvery in Ratho, and it used to be very good, but it seems to have gone downhill a little. The other one we go to is a Toby Carvery in Liberton in Edinburgh that used to be called the Balm Well. It's brilliant, and the quality of the food is excellent.
It's 11.30 now and we've only just sat down. We got in and put the shopping away, then decided to try to dismantly the falling apart armchair in the kitchen. We didn't get very far, so we're going to get it into the boot of the car tomorrow, hold the boot lid down with bungees and drop it at the tip tomorrow morning. The dog was upset because it's his armchair!
Off to a car boot tomorrow - probably will be full of rubbish, but alŵays worth a mooch.
