This Blog is to record the journey, of Iain and Deborah Blue (aka IB and Debo), around the world. We'll be keeping a paper journal and then try and update the blog whenever (and wherever) we can.

After the drunken night before, we were all saying how we missed not having tattie scones to cure our hangover hungers (for those not in the know, a tattie scone, or potato scone, is a Scottish delicacy, made from potatoes, flour, water and a little salt), BUT you can't get them in Oz. IB let it slip that he had made them before......so that was it. The following day we set on our quest, checked the recipe thanks to Google (click here if you want to make your own), and headed to the shops.
A couple of hours later, we had a good 45 tattie scones, which soon became 40 (the workers have to eat you know), which we froze - although I don't know why cause Cathy and Gavin are going through them like there is no tomorrow!!
I think we can safely say they were a success
After a great time at the Sunshine Coast, we headed back to Brisbane to stay with Cathy, Gavin, Becca and David. Cathy, who we had never met, is the sister of our friend Brian, so it was going to be fun trying to find her at the station. She described herself as "shorter than Brian, with longer hair" - hmmm this could be tricky, but also said she was wearing a purple top...which made finding her much easier. She drove us to their home where they made us very welcome. On Saturday night we had a few drinks (of course) to celebrate our new friendship and danced the night away to Debo's mp3 player, which had an array of "hits" which Cathy hadn't heard in ages......great fun (but sore heads and legs in the morning)
