Tales Of Celebration

The snow never came but the temperature felt like it was on the cards the entire day. The Arctic wind blowing in direct from Siberia made it extremely cold and finding a working nerve on my face by the time I got to work was a wasted effort.

The celebrations over Scotland's famous win on Saturday are continuing in all the daily newspapers (except maybe The Times, Independent etc.) and there are more than just a few smiling faces in the office for once. I had to pinch myself - it is a Monday today, after all.

All the stories were relived about everyone's night to celebrate the win. They all included copious amounts of alcohol and everyone over the age of 18 in Scotland seemed to have spent Sunday recovering with a hangover. Sales of Irn-Bru must have peaked to an all-time high yesterday!

It's still sinking in what a glorious and momentous achievement Saturday was. The atmosphere in Sportsters Bar was amazing and the whole occasion will live long in the memory.

As for work, no comment.

I enjoyed a lovely dinner in the evening though. Fresh cannelloni on a Monday evening - bliss.

I spent the rest of the evening working on my Scotland's Treasure column for issue 2 of The Scruffy Dog Review due out at the start of March.

Before I go, I have a good friend who is going through a terrible time at the moment. She knows who she is and I just want to say there are a lot of people thinking about you and praying for you. It will end and you know where I am should you need anyone to dump your pain on.

Sounds like a pretty great Monday - as far as Mondays go!

I'm in the same spot here in Canada... 10-15 cm of snow forecasted and I'm hoping the clouds will just forget to burst. I'll keep my fingers crossed for both of us.
