A Tiring but Good Day

Phew, what a day I have had!!!

My sister Sheena (hi sis!!) got me a ticket for 'The Good Food Show' for my birthday. 
The Good Food Show is an exhibition of all things food (surprisingly).  It has tasting sessions, cookery shows, food stalls - you get the picture.

So Sheena and I left at 9.45am and caught the train to Glasgow and made our way to the Scottish Exhibition Centre. 
It was amazing how busy it was by 11am.  In fact the cloakroom lady said they were expecting it to be the busiest day today - I don't think she was wrong!!

We started by wandering around the stalls and made a few purchases.
By about 12.30 we decided we wanted to get some fresh air and wandered outside - it was such a lovely day. Do you know I was sitting in a sleevless t-shirt in the sun and it was so warm - my goodness it's almost November - I'm not complaining though :))

We  had tickets to go and see 'The Hairy Bikers' doing a live show at 2.30pm. So we wandered along to get our seats for the show - they were very good and entertaining. 
I took some pictures to let you see.
 I took this picture because the camera guy had a kilt on - and I thought you might like to see it :))

 These two are the Hairy Bikers - their names are Si King and David Myers. They are called the Hairy Bikers because they are quite hairy and the ride motorbikes!!!

 They did a show on the telly a few months ago on their journey cooking meals while they were trying to lose weight - they both lost a lot of weight.  
The recipes they cooked today were meals from the telly show a low calorie curry and some low calorie chilli. The smell as they made them was amazing. 
I've bought their book so when I try the recipes I'll be certain to do a post on it :))

They were so funny and entertaining they had their audience laughing hard - always good :))

Anyway we finally got the train home at about 4 oclock,  tired with sore legs but having had a really good day.

Thanks sis for a great birthday present.

What a lovely birthday outing you had, Ellie! I loved the camera man in his kilt! Those Hairy Bikers are real characters! I see the blond one washed his flowing locks before the show! Did they keep their weight off after the much publicized diet?! That's always the big test, isn't it?!
Have a great week. It's lovely and warm here too!

There is nothing like a day with your sister(s) is there? I have never heard of the Hairy Bikers...apparently the Food Network in the States hasn't got wind of them yet. Love the kilt. You were right...we wanted to see that. So, really.....do men often wear kilts to work?
