I’ve never had a to do list for summer so this is an interesting question to answer – I’m used to having work to do lists rather than personal. The other thing that is different about this summer is that we will be having three weeks of winter whilst we’re in Australia, so keeping warm could be one of my things to do. When I tell people here in Scotland that we’re going to Australia for a holiday they instantly think that it’s going to be lovely and warm – it’s that stereotypical vision that people have of my homeland, sun, sand, and surf, forgetting that it’s winter there now. We’ll be wearing lots of layers.
Lots more exploring and days of fun is a definite! I would really like to do the walk we discovered when we went to the Ancient Woodland near Dufftown – my only problem would be that I had a little mishap a few weeks ago that injured my leg, so I might have to set my walking goals slightly lower this summer. (It wasn’t anything exciting, clumsy me just fell as I was getting out of the shower).
I love street art so would really like to get over to Aberdeen, on the north east coast of Scotland, to explore the art that is there. I have a soft spot for Aberdeen as it’s the city my Granddaddy lived in before he moved to Australia. I like walking around the city and imagining what his life was like when he lived there.
My biggest hope for the summer is that the Scottish Highlands don’t have their warmest days whilst we’re down under in the cold – that would be just our luck.
What are your plans for summer? Do you have certain things that you really want to do or are you just going to see where the spirit takes you. Before you go, pop over to Rory’s blog and see what my fellow bloggers have come up with for their to do list – Click Here to Visit.
Until next time, be good, stay safe, and have a wonderful week.
