Lunch in Luss and the road to recovery



So how are you all? Well I hope. Life has been returning to semi-normality after hubby’s stint in the hospital last weekend. He’s still not 100%, but is on the road to recovery…slowly, he’s getting there.



Right, so what’s been happening this week? I was back at work at the beginning of the week, so didn’t really do anything except keep up with the housework and cook dinners. Today, we decided to go out for a little while. Hubby got out of hospital on Monday evening and has been indoors ever since, so we went out for a small spot of lunch. We drove to Luss on Loch Lomond for lunch at the Village Rest. It’s a nice place to eat and the food is nice, but they’ve bumped the prices up, which is disappointing. They used to be such good value for money. I mean £10.95 for a nice, but not special burger, salad and chips isn’t good value in my books. I’d expect to pay at least a couple of quid less. Hey ho.

Anyway, we ate, we went for a short walk and came home. The trip took it out of hubby who went for a wee lie down after.

This afternoon, I worked on a knitted gift for a young lady whose birthday sleepover my daughter attended on Monday night. I had intended having it finished for her before Monday, but fate took me away from knitting and over to hospital! Anyway, I will have that finished (and I will show you the finished product) within the next couple of days. I watched All About Eve whilst knitting, it’s one of my all time favourite movies. I love Bette Davis, what a performer! It’s a great movie and hilarious in bits. Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy ride!

Meanwhile, the girl spent the afternoon cleaning the pit that is her room. The boy had finished his this morning, but hers was still messy. This is the expression she had on her face when I told her to clean it…


And then it was this…

Noooooooo! I don't want to clean my room! You can't make me!

Noooooooo! I don’t want to clean my room! You can’t make me!

Needless-to-say she was sent up to her room to clean it! It’s still a pit, but better than it was. I hate keeping her indoors when the weather is so nice, but I’ve been asking her for weeks to clean it and had to put my foot down.

Right, I am off. It’s nearly 9pm, I’m not long in from my bi-weekly walk with friends and I’m desperate for a wee cup of tea. Til next time!
