Weekend Away

Apologies for lack of posts on Saturday and yesterday. I was away for the weekend! Our local football team were playing away in Dumfries so we decided to go and make a weekend of it and my very first away game! 

One of my friends lives in Dumfries so we stayed with her on the Saturday night. On the Friday we stayed at Trigony House Hotel and woke up to a dusting of snow! Trigony House Hotel is set in 4 acres of woodland and gardens, is dog friendly and run by husband and wife team, Jan and Adam Moore. There is also an Organic Veggie Garden in the grounds which would be great to see in full bloom!

We stayed in a Classic bedroom which was cozy and overlooked the garden (Room 5). Toiletries were by The Caurnie Soaperie which were lovely although I did pack some of my own too!

We ate some nice food at dinner and breakfast was an amazing full Scottish fry up! 

On Saturday we stopped at Thornhill and visited a gorgeous shop, gallery and cafe called Thomas Tosh which was stuffed full of books, beauty products, china, cards, artwork, jewellery, foods and drink and beautiful gifts. It is well worth a visit if you are in the area. The Lemon Drizzle Cake comes highly recommended!

We dropped our stuff at my friends and headed to the game. I was very happy our team won.  There was a great atmosphere and a big crowd.

What did you get up to at the weekend?
