St Andrews, Autumn Colours and Crisp Air - A perfect time to get away from the ocd, but it still tagged along. It must of hid under the car!

I am sitting here nearly falling asleep. I wanted to blog yesterday while the trip to St Andrews was still fresh on my mind. It still is but I just can't seem to get rid of this bug and feeling tired all of the time is getting the better of me. Thankfully the rash has cleared up and after a visit with my GP on Friday it was agreed that it is likely to be an allergic reaction. I just don't know what I could be allergic to and now it is constantly on my mind when I am wanting to have something to eat. I always have the same things in my diet, I am plain and boring and I don't tend to have anything different. I am allergic to dairy and I know that sometimes I am naughty and I can't resist a bit of ice cream or milk chocolate but I can't see that being the cause of the rash.

Anyways! Something other than ill health!

St Andrews was lovely. The trees were all in lovely fall colours, the air was crisp and the scenery was beautiful! We were there for just one night and it was such a big achievement and I am so proud of myself for managing to not only leave the flat but to travel 2 hours away and stay a night. Once we got into our hotel room I stayed in for the night. I couldn't face going out, not even downstairs to the restaurant to have dinner. Thankfully I had a good sized breakfast the next morning!

The next morning we went out to put our cases in the car once we checked out. I had no choice but to leave and I was anxious but it soon went down when I started to naturally enjoy myself. We walked along the beach and I collected some pretty shells. I got into a bit of a panic about my hands getting dirty and found the nearest public toilet to wash my hands which didn't help much but it was the best that I could do. We walked along the path by the golf course and then we headed towards the castle and cathedral ruins. I saw the university buildings and they were just beautiful. Overall a really beautiful place but it is so nice to just be home!

I will post photos later on, I need to have a rest before I can get myself to sort them out. I am just so tired
