Day 162-163 Fixing Phone

Monday 14 & Tuesday 15 September 2015

Rest Days

Cally’s, Elgin & Maggie’s, Glasgow

Thank goodness for kind folk (who are now friends) who put me up when I keep turning up like a bad penny! 

I managed to smash the screen on my phone last week and, based on my total reliance on my phone to organise my trip, write my blog and stay in touch, I desperately needed to get it fixed. The earliest appointment I could get to repair it was Tuesday afternoon in Glasgow, hence I hatched a plan to drop in on Cally in Elgin for a couple of nights and then head to Maggie’s in Glasgow. Without their help I would have been really stuck and I can’t thank them enough. 

It seems to have been a bit of a theme of my trip in Scotland – 3 safe houses in Edinburgh, Inverness and Glasgow where friends have welcomed me whenever I’ve been necky and asked to stay. I now realise how much of a help that has been for me mentally, knowing there was a way out if I needed it. 

Needless to say I was really well looked after and entertained for 2.5 days – more than I deserved. 

On Monday night at Cally’s I found the anthem for the Scottish part of my trip. In the words of Dougie MacLean (from Caledonia)

     “Caledonia you’re calling me and           now I’m going home”

    Back in the pub again Juice….you are not doing your clean living Calvinist reputation any good.
    As for kindness people are kind to kind people……even if you consider yourself a bad penny you always turn up shiny and new!
