They are well provisioned with sandwiches and snacks for the journey, and my sister was in charge of making a flask of coffee for the adults, as the YFG has some squash. All that they will need at the service stations will be the loos!
I have sent parcels for the EFG too - washing powder bought on offer, a knitting book [with wool and needles], a chemistry book and some revision charts from her bedroom wall, and some goodies - she asked for home made cheese scones and flapjack, so they are carefully packed in there too - just hope that they don't get raided en-route!
They are going to be staying in an apartment in Peterculter which is just outside Aberdeen. It was tricky to find anything self-catering in Aberdeen with parking, so they are just a little way outside. They are hoping to arrive by 7pm and take the EFG out for a meal tonight.
And me? I am working this week, and already this morning I have had a tidy round, sorted the chooks and rabbit, and got a load of washing in that the YFG had left in the basket. I have an optician's appointment on Thursday, but don't really expect to leave the village apart from that. I need to get my head down and tackle Faith & Worship in some of the time I have, and the OCC boxes need to be packed this week too!
It is a lovely sunny morning here today, so I shall enjoy sitting outside under the verandah in the sun when I have a tea break later xxx
