Thanks to a little golfing tournament in the Royal Burgh of St Andrews the employees of Scotland’s first university were granted two additional days vacation.
So yesterday we took the opportunity to make a quick visit to see my Mum — following her foot operation a couple of weeks ago — my sister Jenni and nephew Benjamin.
And unfortunately it really was a quick visit:
- Jane had prepared lunch which she popped into the oven
- Eat lunch
- Clear up
- Shopping for Mum
- Visit Jenni and Benjamin for 10 minutes
- Deliver shopping to Mum
- Leave for home again
We left Anstruther just after 09:00 and got back home around 18:00, which is about the time they normally go upstairs for a bath, and they hadn’t even had their dinner yet.
So we just pushed everything back an hour, ate dinner and then went out to the park outside our back gate for a kick about with the football to run off some of their energy; they’d been sitting in the car for much of the day. (We’re not daft!)
They were great! I was so proud of them all day.
