Hope everyone had a merry christmas and Santa was good to you all. Now comes the lull after Christmas before New Year. Days of watching DVDs, sorting through everything you got on the 25th and going shopping. For the first time braved the boxing day sales. We got into town about 10am but heard there were some people queuing from 4am for shops opening at 6am! Is 25% or however much you get off really worth that? Obvious is for some people but we aren’t them. Wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be was however still glad to have a few breaks and get home at the end of the day.
Whenever I am in town and it is really busy am always glad and grateful for bookshops; everything just seems so much calmer and peaceful. Have a look at a few books, drink and food ( in the ones that have a coffee shop in them) and let the world pass you by for a bit. Main one in Aberdeen is Waterstones but we also love going to Books & Beans which is a second-hand book shop and cafe; great food and drink plus a lovely atmosphere and staff.
Currently sitting with Doctor Who on, see how I say it is on rather than I am watching it. I don’t like Doctor Who but Kat does and at Christmas time I put up with watching it. Usually on Christmas day itself but so much to watch that we didn’t get round to it. So here I am but am blogging which I don’t usually do when we are watching something since not very sociable.
So we are in the Christmas lull, not that I am complaining, been nice watching DVDs and just spending time with Kat. Now got Kat’s brother coming up for a few days, hopefully go to the cinema a few times. Going to go see the second Hobbit film, can’t wait to see it, really enjoyed the first one. Also hopefully going to see The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, which again looking forward to see, everyone enjoys a good day dream.
On monday we are off to Glencoe to spend 4 nights at the Clachaig inn over Hogmanay. Somewhere that I have driven through but not spent that much time and of course seen plenty of pictures of the area. Really looking forward to it, being in the beautiful country of Scotland, hopefully good food, music, log fires and what always makes a place and trip; the person you go with.
