Fell out of my seat on the last one.

Last time I was back in Bearsden it was 80F and people were turning bright red and spontaneously combusting.

My kids are off to the borders next week. I was worried about them freezing their butts off, but maybe they'll be able to survive with light weight sweats!

We visited in June, and in August, both times they had the worst flooding ever and it was not unusual to see the thermostat dip into the 40's.

I hope that they have at least a couple of glorious days so that they can enjoy beautiful Scotland

When we visited the island of Arrun we saw the palm trees, just wonderful.
