Auchterarder care home residents thank the Queen for her (sort of) visit
We are writing to thank you for your surprise visit to Balhousie Ruthven Towers care home last weekend. We know you have a great love for Scotland. So it did not entirely surprise us that you would choose a trip up here to bucolic, sunny Perthshire over a crowded Pall Mall and rain.
We were delighted beyond words – and by that we mean, some of us were literally speechless. Of course we have been making up for it ever since, chattering non-stop about the day the Queen came to tea.
Did you enjoy the scones, by the way? We hope so. (Nice to have a change from a marmalade sandwich!) Our kitchen staff’s nerves are still recovering after catering for the Queen. Whisper it, but we think we do baked goods better than they do down south. We definitely do parties better. We don’t like to point fingers, but… Rod Stewart singing Tom Jones? Really?
