It was great to be back with the Highland folk
to say I needed a holiday was no joke
So off we went up the big long road
the car packed to the max with our massive load
We had practised, rehearsed and packed so concise
packed in like a ready to eat Balti with a small portion of rice
Squashy I'd say it may have been for some
but the passengers they could breathe....brilliant, job done
We had to take a detour on the way there
the scenic route but hey we were on hols why should we care
I now know what The Long and Winding Road is that The Beatles sang about
we got through safely though so we shouldn't really shout
A Tesco man had left shopping at our pad
a good idea eh? No shopping trip to be had
We could just relax after our journey with a glass of wine
Pizza straight in the oven and I was in bed by nine
We toured the Scottish sights and of course had tea
cakes too, well this is a holiday with me
If you go away to somewhere with a fantastic view
it's only right to combine it with a brew
The weather was good and we had lots of fun
laughter, giggles and a bit of shopping was done
Family were hugged tight before leaving for home
but first to Edinburgh we would roam
I say thank you to the lovely people we saw
I wish we could see you all a lot more
I'm sure we will return for another venture that's new
so get your kettles ready, I'll be needing that Highland brew!!
Thank you for reading today.
Please join me again tomorrow for Free From Friday
but for now
