On Jet Lag & Rain
Today I walked to the left down Byers Road to see what there was to see. My mission - get an adapter for Brenda's blow dryer as the adapters she brought don't fit the type of plugs in this flat. So I checked out Woolworths and Boots and for an extra pound I ended up just buying a new blow dryer (I'll need one for myself eventually anyway).
Found a few very good looking bakeries and another vegetable stand. Picked up veggies for tonight's curry. Also found a new Tikka Masala sauce I wasn't familiar with so I grabbed it and will try it out.
On the way home from my walk the rain started and as I had left my small umbrella somewhere in my parents garage I had nothing. But I have heard that a true Scot doesn't use an umbrella unless it's a torrential downpour so I must have looked like a local, or just a very soggy unprepared newcomer.
Grabbed a coffee from the shop downstairs to warm me up.
A quick comment on posting comments to my blog. Please do - but when you do please either leave your name or at least initials so I know who you are.
Tommorrow I'll have a concert review of the Acoustic Triangle performance from Stirling Castle.
