This is where Boo and I stayed in Gretna, where our friend is the General Manager.
I could get married here.

Today’s method of procrastination? – Booking a holiday.
It’s been a whole day affair, involving a trip into town to pick up a tonne of brochures. A two hour lunch in the pub while I peruse them all quietly and create a shortlist of destinations / hotels. Followed by an afternoon and an evening scouring the interchoobs for the best deal.
Throw in a couple of hours ranting and frustration as the price / flight availability change by the minute, twenty minutes frantically searching for the debit card you know you had earlier, and all of a sudden you realise the day is gone.
You can however now look forward to 10 whole days away procrastinating under the Egyptian skies.
