@Nona99:  I have never been to Scotland…I just popped in to read something cheerful! I am glad that you and Mr99 are able to have some happiness and get away given all that you’ve been through recently. I am quite jealous of your personal chef, lol. It would also be a great feeling to pay down all of your debt! It won’t bring your loved ones back, but you can feel even closer to them and find comfort through this final kind gesture they made towards you.

No advice (beyond consider going in the fall), but tell more about the private chef experience so I can live vicariously through you.  Where have you taken them, do they fly with you/cruise/hotel or do you find one there?  What sorts of things do they make?  How do you find them and how much are they?

@Nona99:  I think just hiring someone for dinner sounds like the best idea. You don’t want a stranger in your private space…even if they are discrete, you may want to do something wild and crazy without an audience. If you don’t care much for breakfast and lunch, you two can take turns doing that and then have special dinners that you didn’t have to cook each night. That sounds like a wonderful vacation!

Oooh that’s awesome! I got to backpack around Scotland a bit in college, and absolutely fell in love with it :-). A private home there would be awesome! Have you thought about using the money to do global travel instead? The money would pay for some serious rentals in just about any gorgeous place on Earth. You could hopscotch through the gorgeousness and still afford a chef, etc etc!

@Nona99:  ahhh…  Sigh.  I can picture that now.  Thank you.  I will now dream of getting a private chef for my mountain retreat week with gobs of family and never lifting a finger.
