In those circs the correct response is 'Well y'know me, can't keep away from the place...'Phoned into work to see if I'm needed or not today then was gently reminded I'm supposed to be off today anyway .. I thought today was Tuesday but it's not is it, it's Wednesday .. that was slightly embarrassing.
I had a smashing time hunck. 5 out of 5. I see it's called 'The Lord Burton' these days which makes sense as it's in Burton on Trent .. here's exactly where it all happened in fact, right at the far back right hand corner in one of those types of cubicles that you can't see in this picture, right at the back of the roomYou should put it in in a review on trip advisor.

Never nice when that kind of thing happens.On a less cheerful note though, today I phoned my Dad to tell him where and when his old best mate Reg's funeral is happening. Reg's wife phoned me to ask me to do that.
Had this in my own family a few years ago. A beloved uncle died suddenly* and people were talking about it on Facebook. Some family members were on holiday and probably hadn't heard the bad news so a cousin took umbrage, saying we should have kept quiet until they were back. She was so upset she unfriended me. I wasn't bothered, she's a silly bitch.I remember a few year back when it suddenly appeared on Face Book that one of my nephews was dead. His mother didn't know.
We raced off to get to her before she saw it, but we were too late.
That illustrated that some people are so keen to get a 'first' on the net they don't think to check that the appropriate people are informed before they do it.
Splendid day there, Iris! Nice touch thinking of others.As I've already had my first Christmas card, decided to write out mine. Also fixed the wheel on the book trolley I take to Probus and rang a couple of people who are not well.
Inspired by your stunningly beautiful photograph, decided I really need to sort out my own, going back some 30 years!Been tramping about the cairngorms.
That has reminded me of my own Visit to Iona, I was very young, about 5, and went there with my family (for some Methodist thing I suspect) and I had, for the first and last time a spiritual feeling.Inspired by your stunningly beautiful photograph, decided I really need to sort out my own, going back some 30 years!
In boxes all over the place - cupboards, underneath the beds, etc.!
Following on from your good self, these are cherished. Some of the photographs (non-digital, Canon EOS 10, with tripod) taken of my beloved Iona:

Springtime on Iona is amazing - the wild flowers are blossoming on the machair.I think a return visit is long overdue, Oban, Mull and Iona in the spring or Autumn.
