Firstly ... I want to thank everyone who dropped by my WOYWW ... over the past few days ... a record number....68... wow. It took me till Friday evening to visit every one on JD's linky thingy ... if I didn't, then its because it wouldn't let me or I may have jumped a number, but that must be 3 or 4 of you... at the most. What fun it was popping in on everyone but as it took me so long it means I am behind with visiting my other friends and looking at the posts in general over the past few day...I shall try to catch up ...if creating doesn't get in the way lol
I have just come back from an amazing day in Edinburgh.This is the first photo I've managed to get of all four of them together ...and yeah .... the baby bump is there too.
AND BABY MAKES 5 ....
We all met at Waverley Station ... then on to a Chinese Buffet ... followed by a stroll in the park ... what could be better.
I ate so much ... yet not enough to feel ill ...after dosing myself with medication, my back held up very well and so I was keen to stroll in Princes Street Gardens. The boys were keen to show me how good they were at walking and tried to show how well they could run too ....hoods on jackets are so handy when catching a runaway toddler.
RIGHT ...YOU GO THAT WAY ... I'LL GO THIS
WHAT A LOT OF BIRD ****
THE PINK CAFEVIEW FROM THE PINK CAFE
After a little stroll we felt the need for some tea at the pink outdoor cafe and this is where an extra special part of the day began ......
Ben was so tired he dosed off but Jake's ears picked up a distant rhythmic drumming and appeared to be tapping his foot in time. Leaving Steve with Ben asleep in the push chair ...Emma and I ...and a very eager Jake ...went in search of the beat...
AND WE FOUND IT ....TRIBAL MUSIC
It was an amazing group of drummers and a piper who I found out were called CLANADONIA and who described their music as Tribal ... it was like a mix of traditional Gaelic with a rock influence and sort of jazz inter play between the solo drummers. I wish I could describe how fantastic they sounded .... how inspiring ... and exciting it was to hear them live ...the best way to enjoy any music.
Jake was captivated ...started to stamp out the rhythm with his feet...tapped a rhythm with his hand on his and his mums arm ...shook his head like a rock head banger ... all in time with the drums. He clapped and then whimpered, when they stopped and then lit up when they restarted. Many of the crowd that had gathered to watch the band ...... were also watching Jake ... I was such a proud Nana ... husbands were nudging wives and girlfriends pointed him out to their partners ... OK, when should I buy him a set of drums or pay for dance lessons ... now? ... LOL
Take Care xx
