’Raindrops keep falling on my head’’
‘’I’m singing in the Rain…just singing in the Rain’’
‘’Under my umbrella…ella ella eh eh eh ’’
These songs just keep playing around and around in my head! The title of my last blog ‘Sunny Scotland’ seems to have been a little bit premature, as aside from one glorious day, the rain has fallen continuously in Crieff!! I now don’t even have faith that I will ever again have to go outside without an umbrella L
In relation to work, I am getting on well with my project and growing used to being fully independent. I never thought that I would be left to complete this project quite as independently as I have (i.e. if I did nothing all day no one would know), but I know I am going to be so proud of myself at the end when all my work is combined into one massive report! I am also getting involved (with Nic the other scholar in Perth) organising an event which we will be able to talk about it in a few weeks J
So what else is there to do in Crieff???? To be honest, options are fairly limited, and the weather isn’t helping! Going to the local sports centre has become a really good way to fill the evenings, and I am getting to know a few people there too which is nice. It’s weird cause I actually bump into people that I know after only 3 weeks of being here (yesterday I saw 3 people I knew when I was walking back to my car after a class). This exercise thing is all fairly new to me, basically has really only kicked off since I started my job as a way to fill evenings, but I am started to really enjoy it. Wednesday marks ZUMBA day, and as my friend Lisa from work is feeling ill, I will be making an idiot of myself on my own…oh well I am sure no one will laugh at me too much.
Last Friday I got a taste of Crieff nightlife, otherwise referred to as the Caledonian pub, as it was one of the tour guides, Lucy, 23rd birthday. It was brilliant, as it at last gave me the chance to meet everyone from work properly (as I work in the office I never ever see the guides as we never get breaks at the same time). We all ended up having quite a few drinks and at the end of the night I had to resist the temptation of the late night take-away ‘SnakAttak’ which I think is a bit of a Crieff institution.
On Saturday my boyfriend and I were planning to go to the Scottish Game Fair, which is a massive event held at Scone Palace in Perth. However unfortunately, due to all this rain I have been mentioning it was cancelled…so instead we decided we would go to Blair Drummond Safari Park J Now that was a good way to spend a Saturday afternoon!!!! Yes, the average age of visitors was about 5, and we must have been the only adults there without a child in tow but overall it was pretty good! Here are some pictures I took:
This is a meercat that really really wanted the food my boyfriend was eating, they all went mental so people must feed them:
I didn't expect to see these in Perth!
This made me laugh...
Some massive cows with horns:
AND FINALLY....My Favourite animal of all!!!!!!!!!!! I actually fell in love with this....
That must be the cutest thing I have ever seen...my boyfriend lives on a farm so I have decided that I am going to get a goat!!
So to round it up...this week work wise I need to finish my competitor analysis which will consist of me writing up my research so far. At the weekend I have a wedding on Friday night and a birthday party on Saturday so need to get dresses sorted out!!!!
Blog again soon,
