... for a shower so we headed for home. It had however been a great day despite the temperature. The Border Hills were at their best, the River Tweed sparkled and the wild flowers which we met along the way provided us with a wonderful array of colours, shapes and sizes. It had been super to walk and natter the day away with Helen and I look forward to her joining us on Saturday for a few days as we head north towards Edinburgh.

With the occasional business travel it is also likely to require, that might work out very well indeed.
