Autumn Break

As usual, we've had a little autumn break while the schools have been off, especially when we had no grandparent duties this time (although I always love going on outings with my wee granddaughter)!

On one of the best days, we went further into Fife, to the lovely harbour town of Anstruther, famous for its fish and chips. With all that daily fresh fishing catch, we had to sample it of course. I went for the special recipe battered haddock while husband prefers breaded fish. A calorie-loaded treat!

Another day trip we had was to Edinburgh, when we then walked for miles and miles to Leith. I didn't even know there was such a big shopping mall at the Ocean terminal, where the (former) Royal Yacht Britannia is berthed. We passed on the ship but had a delicious Italian meal before getting the much-appreciated bus back up to Edinburgh for the train!

Sometimes all we need are days when we can decided to do nothing much in particular, rather than rushing out each morning. All in all, it was a good break and gave us time to take stock of our respective work loads.

Now, it's full-speed ahead getting all my e-books updated and putting them all into print. A laborious but enjoyable task which will take a while yet. Can't wait to get my hands on the brand new paperback version of them all.

Those fish and chips do look yummy, Rosemary. :-)

You have had some lovely day-trips looking at those photos, especially like the one of the boats.
