Well that was a great wee weekend.
Started off after work on Friday, with a leaving do for one of the other techs who retired. I only stayed a couple of hours, as I had to get sorted for the next day’s trip, but my line-manager told me he finally left at 11pm, 7 hours after we arrived 🙂
Saturday, we headed to Gartmore House where we were booked in for the night. After checking in, we hopped back in the car, and headed to Aberfoyle for a wander round, before jumping back in the car and heading to Callander for a while, before finally heading back to Gartmore House and dinner.
The food was excellent (as usual). This was the third time we’ve stayed there, and the food has always been great. My wife is coeliac, and there’s Free From bread, and soya milk, so she’s catered for as well, which a lot of more expensive places don’t seem to do.
After dinner, we just heading into the lounge and had a few games of Ouril. We’d taken the set that I picked up in Cape Verde along. Easy game to learn, but I suspect it could take a while to get really good at it.
Yesterday, after a substantial breakfast, we got a map of local forest walks from the reception, checked out, and went for a nice long walk before heading back home.
Great weekend, and getting out and doing something, rather than slobbing out with Netflix, was great (Not that I’m averse to the odd box set binge 😀 )
