Yesterday I had a day off from everything - no work, no lectures, no dancing. Although I do have assignments to take care of I decided to take advantage of an empty diary and headed to one of my favourite parks in Glasgow, Pollok Country Park. Having grown up in the countryside, I often get pangs of longing for nature and while Pollok Country Park isn't technically the countryside, it does the trick when those pangs become one too many. I've always enjoyed doing things alone ever so often, just spending time with my thoughts. I had a lovely couple of hours time strolling through the park, and I also visited the house for the first time (hurrah for being a National Trust member) and had a warming butternut squash soup for lunch ('a table for one, please') before heading back home.
