Listening to: See No Evil (Television)
It seemed such a good idea a couple of months ago when The Boy and I agreed to meet up in Aberdeen this Saturday for the Scotland v Canada rugby game at Pittodrie.
We bought the tickets, booked his flights from Devon and happily looked forward to it.
I forgot about winter in the north of Scotland. The severe weather warning was issued on Tuesday morning. Apparently it's going to get cold - very cold. And windy too - very windy.
I set off from Westray this morning (a day earlier than planned) and it didn't bode well when, on arriving at Kirkwall, the hydraulic ramp on the boat got stuck and took 15 minutes to fix. It looks like being a long trip.
All ferries off Orkney to Scotland are now 'under review', so I'm killing time in the library, preparing to set off into the increasingly chilly outdoors in search of a ferry that may or may not exist.
Please send chocolate and Kendal mint cake.
