Heading Home

During the first week of July, we packed up everything in our house, and shipped it home..

We had a bit of a holiday on the way home to Perth. First stop, Edinburgh. Here we are in Princes St gardens. I revisited the bridge where I used to spend a lot of time as a 5 year old - It goes over the main railway lines out of Waverley station...

Then we headed over to Glasgow, after a short visit with our cousins in Larbert.
We were on a bit of a Charles Rennie Mackintosh pilgrimage, to see if we got any bright ideas for interiors in our house. These photos are taken inside the Willow Tearooms in Sauchiehall St.
