Great dinner at Hopeman Golf Course then Christmas blues!

A great night with the golf club Seniors Christmas Party with a walk home from Hopeman at the end of it!

We played golf before and it was so warm like a summers day and the greens were superb! This is December in Scotland and yet it was incredible to be playing in the winter and still warmth in the winter sun.

We always invite the green staff and they play with us on the day of the dinner. The meal was great and the evening was superb. I never take this place for granted and cannot thank the ground staff catering and management for a great course made special by the people.

I was going to order some Christmas gifts when I got back and discovered that my Amazon Account had been hacked and it has taken all day to sort it out!

I would advise you especially at this time of year to check your emails and accounts as it can happen so quickly!

Amazon and the Bank have been good but it took ages most of the day to fix passwords changed again and the money will be returned in 5 – 7 days! 

In the great scheme of things it is not a disaster I spotted it quick but what a hassle sorting it out! Amazon were good but it was so difficult talking to the operator in the  Phillipinnes  when you are wound up? How do those who are not computer savy cope with the technology waits on phone that seem endless ! It was easy taking to the bank once I got through! 

Such is life – keep an eye on things if you use the net and cards at this time of year!
