Sunny day= no knitting progress

It was such a glorious day yesterday we went out for a run in the car rather than stay at home doing things like housework and seaming.
We took a ride out to Linlithgow, which I had never visited before, although J had seen it from the train many's the time.
We had lunch and then had a good look at
Linlithgow Palace , birthplace of Mary, Queen of Scots, as well as St. Michael's church which dates back hundreds of years apart from the 1960s yes 1960s spire, which I must say looks pretty good IMHO.
We had a lovely 2.3 mile walk round the loch then off to see a prehistoric burial site at Cairnpapple . J has a fascination for standing stones and all that sort of thing, and it was impressive. The views in all directions were amazing. Later in the day I had the migraine from hell, triggered by the bright light, but let's not dwell on that.
Deep still untouched! When it's sunny in Scotland, you gotta make the most of it! Posted by Picasa

Hope that migraine didn't last too long (although 5 minutes is too long with one of those)

The castle looks really pretty - it's fun to go exploring locally, you never see stuff that's nearby unless you make the effort!

Gather the migraine is here to stay - hope you feel better real soon,

Gosh it looks like such a lovely day up there, the photographs are beautiful, well worth putting a hold on knitting to make the most of a day like that.

You asked about my Birch and it is going well, this is my second one and I think I am more confident and more organised. I am using markers and putting it down when I feel tired, so far no ripping, hurrah. I have 2 weeks to finish it and I think I should be OK, I love the fact that you're decreasing all the way.

Hope that migraine leaves you quickly.

Hi Kathleen,
Hope you feel well soon - Linlithgow is lovely, I used to work there in a previous life BC (before children!)

Oh, that castle looks so great, I'd love to visit it one day!
I hope your migraine is gone by now and you feel absolutely well again!

How I love visiting castles and of course having such a beautiful day to do it would help too. Hope the migrane has gone away and that you feel much better now.
