We've been away - hence the big gap. Have you missed me? No, I didn't think so. Anyway, we spent a week on Orkney and a week on Shetland and it was lovely. In case you don't know where these are, Orkney is an archipelago off the north coast of Scotland and Shetland is another, considerably further north.
I have so much to say but we only got back yesterday lunch time, since when we've had the grandchildren rather a lot because I missed them SO MUCH! So I'd better go and do some ironing and such things.
This is the main street in Stromness, where we stayed for the first week.
It's a two-way street. We were told that it was made one-way for a while, but the locals objected so it reverted to two-way. You have to look behind you as you stroll along, though cars drive reasonably slowly and don't honk.
Remind me why I live in a city?
