Unusual bedfellows

There used to be a legendary local shop in Leith, Edinburgh called Borland’s Darts and Television. The frontage had two windows, one either side of the main door, and a sign on one side said DARTS and a sign on the other said TELEVISION. Whether you considered that darts and televisions went naturally hand-in-hand was a hotly debated matter of opinion, but for a discerning and select band of customers, it was the original one-stop shop.

It strikes me that if The Cookie Bite Chronicles was a shop, it would say HEARING AIDS on one side and ISLE OF BUTE on the other. Since we’ve all had enough of hearing aids recently, here is a picture of the sunny Isle of Bute at the weekend instead.

Hearing aid and Isle of Bute in perfect harmony

    When you’re there; you actually WISH there was a god.

    Life does allow it’s little compensations, even in the quietest moments.

      It was a rather lovely walk and well worth getting sunburnt down one side of my face for. The tick which crawled up under the back of my jumper was another matter, though…

    I for my part would return immediately to have the other side taken care of. What a great view! I’ve only been in the vicinity once, to Edinburgh…
