ODP Day 6: Pitlochry

For a day walking around the sweet village of Pitlochry and a night at The Enchanted Forest I am wearing the dress under a long-sleeved black and white striped top, beige knit tights, my tartan chucks and a mustard scarf. My hair is pulled back into a messy bun. And of course, my cutest accessory, Baby Jaguar, wearing his own adorable dinosaur suit and airplane bib.

This morning we had a lovely Scottish breakfast of sausage, egg, bacon, fried tomato, beans and haggis. Afterwards, we took a nice stroll through the town with Jaguar in the pram. Every other time we've been here it's been rainy, so today's sunshine and warm-ish weather is absolutely delightful. I bought myself a lovely little pendant necklace from Heathergems. Of all the times I've been in their shop, I've never bought anything for myself, only for other people. So I'm quite happy with my little purchase.
I also stroked and admired a beautiful wool tartan tailored jacket and surreptitiously peered at the pricetag before politely thanking the shop owner and casually leaving the building. £290 for a jacket is just maybe slightly outwith my price range, and not just because it's October and I'm practicing restraint and anti-consumerism!

Scott and I stopped into a little tea room for a cappuccino and a scone, which has a bit of meaning for us now. It was there that last year at this time we sat, wondering if we might be pregnant and talking baby names at a little two-seated table at the window.

We were supposed to tour the Edradour Distillery in the afternoon, but when we arrived, they said babies aren't allowed in. (Not very 'wecome'!) We were a bit disappointed, especially as we've taken children through other distilleries, but Scott cheered himself up with buying a nice bottle of un-chill filtered single malt whisky, which we'll no doubt open later tonight.

Now we're just relaxing in the hotel room again while Baby Jaguar sleeps, watching rubbish TV. Which by the way is probably one of our favourite things about staying hotels - TV. We are one of those weird families that don't have TV, so we think watching BBC News in the morning upon waking and daft shows like Come Dine With Me and X-Factor in the middle of the night is the height of luxury.

Later on, we'll take a dip in the hotel pool and hot tub, have our dinner in the hotel restaurant and then go to The Enchanted Forest. My review of which will be on very soon.
