The YFG left here this afternoon in a rain storm, so I hope that the reception in Aberdeen will be a little warmer, even if only in spirit. She has texted me to say that she has enjoyed cottage pie courtesy of the First Class menu, and has passed over the Forth Bridge - only about another hour to go to arrival time in Aberdeen now!
It's been a heck of a day but she has come through her icky cough and cold, pulled herself up and gone - and I am so proud of her: she looked so grown up settling down in the train as I waved her off.
We did manage a speedy trip into town this morning, SusanM, and I bagged a new mini oven in Lidl. I shall be trying it out tomorrow with a baked potato for my dinner. It was £26.99 and looks very similar to the last one - I think it is grey, though, but I haven't had time to get it out of the box yet. Will let you know how I get on. Thanks for letting me know - I wouldn't have got it otherwise.
Off for a bath and then to read in bed for a while, with my hot water bottle by my toes! Night xxx
