Bonnie Scotland

Have just spent the weekend in Scotland. Angela has lots of family near Glasgow and as many were unable to make the wedding they put on a Scottish reception for the newly weds. We all got to dress up in our wedding finery again and had a really nice evening.

Then on Monday my sister and I met up with Liz - McLiz - who showed us some of the wonderful architecture and squares in the city. We had a lazy lunch and a wander round the shops and finally said our goodbyes on Central Station - not for long though for Liz and I as we will be room sharing in Manchester for the craft weekend in just a couple of weeks.
Broke the trip home to stop for coffee at Gretna Green. Having visited Scotland on a number of occasions thought it was time we stopped and had a look at the famous Blacksmith's where so many eloping couples have tied the knot, although I think that most of the weddings there now are planned well in advance with family and friends making the trip too.
