This morning started well enough, set off for work around 7.15 and on the way spotted the Virgin balloon just rising above the skyline, it often takes off from a local park when the weather is good (which it was again today) and made the walk to work a bit more interesting.
It was nice to think that someone (several someones!) had to get up earlier than I to be able to get airborne by that time of the morning, is that bad of me?
My job today was on the face of it a fairly simple one, drive a customers car back to them in Inverness, well from Perth that’s around 110 miles or 2.5 hours in the car; a fair distance sure, but with the benefit of passing through some stunning Scottish scenery. So I set off on my journey, only to find after about an hour there was a problem with the car meaning I had to return to the garage to have it checked out. I duly did this and then set off again, only for the same problem to arise again, resulting in another return, only this time there would be no third attempt today, car needs to be looked at in more detail!
Anyway, it was not all a total loss as I said, there is some really nice views I drove through and stopped (of course) to take a couple of photos off, see below.
