I am very excited. The stars have aligned and Ted and I are actually going on a vacation. Alone. Together. No children. It's not that I don't love my kids but this is the best news I've had in a while.
Charlie is still away at school and Kate is going on a trip to St. Petersburg, Russia with two history teachers from her school. This means that either Ted and I can stay at home and enjoy the quiet or we can go away and enjoy the quiet and the change of scene. We voted for the change of scene.
So, we are off to Scotland. I haven't been there in 30 years and Ted's never been. This is somewhat amazing to me given his love of single malt scotch. Nonetheless, while there will be no golf involved in this trip, I suspect there will in fact be a fair amount of scotch drinking for Ted.
The upshot of all this is that I will be taking a brief break from the blog starting tomorrow because I will be on vacation and I WILL NOT BE COOKING! While I love to cook, I am thrilled to let the chefs at fancy hotels and restaurants do the dirty work for a change.
I'm sure I'll have lots to tell when I return. I do not plan to eat any haggis but I do plan to search out some other local specialities, both food and sweater related! So, stay tuned and I'll be back to blogging on Tuesday, June 7th.
