…but not for being a bad boy.
it snowed today, and wonder of wonders, some of it actually lay in Kingsbarns. Rather more lay in Dundee (between 5 and 9 inches – I measured 5 at work) and by lunch time the buses had stopped running, schools and council offices were closing down, and work decided it was time to send people home too.
Luckily, I was able to get a lift in to the city centre, rather than having to wait for my bus… As I’d already been delayed a bit waiting for the lift, I took a bit longer to have a quick look at the continental market in the square.
The stalls selling sausages had little samples out to taste – why don’t they usually seem to do this? – and so I came away several sausages heavier than I’d planned to: pork with figs, chilli, chilli-spice (coated in mustard seeds and (I think) caraway) and garlic and onion (much nicer than I expected).
The buses out of Dundee and through Fife were fine, and I finally got back into Kingsbarns around 4 o’clock.
The snow wasn’t too bad anywhere by the time I was travelling, though I think it caught people out a bit earlier on, and maybe buses slithering in city side streets isn’t a great plan. It’s not even a major story on the Scotland page of the BBC news site, never mind front page stuff. Boots to work tomorrow though, I think.
