oor week in the heelands
Last week the kids and I plus Auntie Mo mo and Grandma Grandad spent a week at 'great glen water park'. It was a welcome break after the 5 days of illness - that mastitis it oooowwweeee, hope tis gone for good. We had a lovely time, doing nowt - weather was pretty crap and place was miles from anywhere, so the pool and walks was about it. That and I ate for scotland! choclate every night and tablet like it was going out of style.
We visited a rare breeds croft, which Archie loved......see above. The wee lambs were feeding and peeing everywhere which amused him no end.
Archie learnt to swim with armbands this week.....G and G were very good at taking him swimming, I was less eager - being lazy besom I am. It was amazing to see the change in him over the week, throwing himself in with no-one to catch him by the end of the week. Sadie also loved it, she was super confident in the water - we sat her on the side and said 1 2 3, on 3 she pushed herself into our arms in the pool.
We had a wee day out to Fort Augutus where we had to have coffee and cakes - which has become Archie's favourite phrase for now. Every cafe we pass he shouts 'coffee cake mummy', no question that he's my son!
On our day oot, Archie spied a tractor in someones garden....Grandma being the nutter she is, let him climb on - luckily the folk were oot!
Thank goodness for grandma and grandad - ooh and of course, the invincible Auntie Mo mo - without whom life would be dull, and much much harder. Love love love xxx
