A break from the daily routine......

That's one of the many things I love about going away in our van....the break from the daily routine!

Every day spent at home, the morning routine is the same....usually woken up by TJ wanting to jump into bed with us.... I do my hair/makeup/shower etc while Stephen walks TJ. We usually rush off to work and then have brekkie at about 11 am with a cuppa.

Mornings in the van are always different.....sometimes I get up first and walk the dog, sometimes Stephen. Sometimes we get up and go quickly, then stop for brekkie an hour or so later, or sometimes we have a leisurely morning. Whatever we do, its always definitely different to what we do at home.

This morning i got up and walked TJ at about 7.30am. We had stayed last night at Dunnet Head....the most northerly point on the British mainland.




I walked up to the view point....you can see for miles from here....across the Pentland Firth to Orkney, over towards Duncansby Head and John o'groats. There was a fresh breeze, which certainly woke me up! I also forgot to take my camera with me!

But it was just so nice, just throwing on some clothes, jumping out the van and being somewhere different....a break from the routine. Tomorrow morning we will be somewhere else....not sure where yet!

Breakfast this morning I think will be freshly made pancakes. I bought one of these 'pancakes mix in a bottle'....we will see how they turn out! If they are a failure, we always have cereal, bacon, eggs, smoked salmon......we wont go hungry!

Before I go and tackle the pancakes, I will leave you with some photos of our lunch stop yesterday at Dunbeath. A stunning spot which we have stopped at often....not overnight yet, but it is perfect for that!
