Quiet day today after a busy one yesterday. My daughter and I enjoyed a few hours together shopping. It wasn't a marathon, only about 4 hours, but that's my limit, I can't shop til I drop nowadays. Arrived home about 5:15, just enough time for a bit of a sit down and rest before going out to a Burns Night do in the village hall.
The evening started with a local choir singing a couple of Scottish songs followed by a couple of readings and then the toast as the haggis was piped in. I have never eaten haggis and didn't think I would like it so I opted for the vegetarian option, but it was stodgy and not very tasty. There was plenty of both on the table so I tried the non-vegetarian one, it was much better, moist and tasty. It was accompanied by delicious gravy, mashed potato, cabbage and my favourite veg, mashed swede, I could eat plates of it. Pudding was clootie dumpling and custard, very nice. We then had a great time Scottish country dancing, accompanied by lots of laughs when we got it wrong! Everyone had a lovely time and returned home exhausted and happy.
It's snowing now. I am going to spend the rest of the day reading, and, if I can move of the sofa, maybe a bit of sewing.
