Well, this is the second week in January! Daddy and I went out to Inchmarlo on an absolutely clear day with no wind and the temperature was very, very pleasant. I had a good time, as usual, going around the residents in the Red Drawing room and in the Reception. Then we went for a walk around some of the neighbourhoods and I enjoyed myself very much. Daddy had a meeting before lunch and then he had lunch with Julie. I heard him say to the kitchen staff that the main course was absolutely wonderful. The choices today were Chicken in a creamy bacon sauce or Beef stew with mustard dumplings, two recipes from Lady Claire Macdonald, who had attended a Food Tasting Dinner at Inchmarlo some years ago. The snack that Daddy took home for me was the chicken which I had later and it was yummy! I’m absolutely sure the residents in the home in Inchmarlo house also enjoyed it.
Later, when we returned to the House to collect invoices to take back to Aberdeen one of the receptionists called in with her two little children. Daddy chatted to them both – charming children – and asked them if they would like to come out to say hello to me as I was already in the back of the car. So they came out and we had a nice little chat. Altogether a lovely day!
