A Scottish Weekend.

I have just come back from a very pleasant weekend away with some girl friends, for the very first time I have been to Scotland. I travelled up by train from Stevenage on Friday morning , 7.19am sharp. The train was brilliant, I hadn't been on a British train for a long journey for some time. I had an allocated seat with my own name tag in the top. It was a supersonic journey only stopping 6 times. The train wasn't that crowded and the buffet trolley was up and down all the time. I arrived in Edinburgh around 11.30 am.

I was met by my friends Jen and Shirl. (Shirl had travelled up by plane from Southampton) We dropped my luggage off at Jen's office and then went for a cream tea at a very nice little tea shop.
We then had a big surprise, Jen had arranged for us both to have facials for our birthday present! Very relaxing and my face felt so smooth and glowing afterwards!
We made our way to Jens flat and had a cup of tea and some of her world famous 'Tablet' (Like a firm fudge, and any fudge is fine by me!!) Shirl had cashed in some of her Tesco vouchers for vouchers for a meal at an Italian restaurant chain. Jen had booked us a table to so headed back into town for the meal. It wasn't until we arrived that Shirl realised that she had left the vouchers at the flat, so we ended up having to pay for it anyway and she has decided to treat her husband with them next week.
