But we had a lovely time in Scotland. It was great to catch up with friends and revisit clubs we've been to many times over the years and also take in a couple of new venues. The weather turned almost overnight from Summer to Winter the day before we left so I ended up taking a suitcase full of unsuitable clothes but before we got home Autumn had arrived in all its glory.
We travelled almost the full length of the country this time, starting in the Borders where we hooked up with a wonderful textile artist friend Mirjam - the Borders are simply beautiful at all times of the year - rolling green fields and the classic Scottish granite buildings.

Every Scottish town has a signpost as you leave, saying "Haste Ye Back" - Aye indeed we will. Can't wait to see you all again soon.
