Today is the beginning of Christmas for the TIG family.
I have just been given an envelope from TIG’s mum and inside is a postcode on the back of a postcard. That postcode is our destination for Christmas. On the front of the postcard is a slightly worryingly scene of a tent, very heavy rain and lots of mud. Maybe this isn’t going to be the magical Christmas I was dreaming of!
TIG’s boyfriend typed the postcode into the Sat-Nav which said we were 5hours 17minutes, 296miles away. We drive past the Lake District and venture up into the highlands of Scotland. 6 hours later we reach our destination, by this time it was dark so we couldn’t see much of the beautiful Scottish landscape. We turned into a courtyard where we spot TIG’s dad waving us in.
We had made it to our home for Christmas, a 5* two-bedroom cosy country cottage near Kenmore, Scotland (www.croftgarrowsteading.co.uk).
We ventured into our modern bungalow which was truly spectacular inside. It had welcoming underfloor heating throughout, gorgeous furnishings and the most amazing feature fireplace that I just wanted to take home with me! Wow, for the next 6 nights this was the place we could call home.
The next morning the views we woke up to were even more spectacular than the inside, plus the added surprise of a hot tub.
This was going to be one amazing TIG family Christmas…
