Its Friday already ....so what have I been up to ?....and what brought a smile to my face? ....watch out its gong to be long... I shall try not to make it too picture heavy.
Last Saturday Ben Jake and Olly dropped by ....not forgetting their Mum and Dad !!...I like to show you the shots that are full of fun and show their character but I could have filled this with the others I took....maybe a few more another day when I have played with them.
Jake ...being interupted while playing with Hexbugs
Olly ....being a detective
Ben ....always asking questions ....I said say ' Gorganzola' ...it works with Kris and Robbie ...stops the awful grins that go with saying 'cheese' but Ben had to ask why and then look bemused at his strange Nana.
Then Steve took loads of shots with me cuddling the boys ...this was one of the better ones where we all were looking in the right direction ...well it was not bad for Olly ...This makes me warm and happy every time I look at it.
Then came Tuesday ....I had booked a 'Drivers Choice' bus tour for Jay and me ...a mother and daughter day out ....it was called a 'Magical Mystery Tour' ....sounds great ....this is a smile because I still cant believe the day. I thought that we would be travelling through the pretty country side, stopping at picturesque places for coffee and lunch ...and back by a different route ....after all it was a 10 hour day.
The day went thus ....
30mins late starting..
Put on a different bus because the other broke down ...
60mins picking others up on route and then changing onto a proper coach
So far I understood the logistical problems.
Off we go ......mainly down motorways to Glasgow ....
Here we pull up in front of a new Transport Museum ...you could hear the groans ripple through the coach.
We were left for nearly 3hours to eat and 'enjoy' the museum. It was not too bad but I was glad to get back into the coach.
FIVE MINUTES down the road the coach pulled in and stopped ......outside ....you guessed it ....another museum and art gallery....there was a stunned silence.
(I shall show you the photos I took on another post ...)
We were left here for another 2 hours before getting back on the coach ...wizzing down the motor ways and arriving back 40 mins early.
If we had known where we were going I would have prepared myself as museums are not my first, second or third choice for a day out ....probably because most days out with my late hubby were to museums or castles. Jay and I used to rush round them while Steve and Pete used to read every thing...well Pete did ...but two in one day was too much.
Lastly .... Wednesday was Ben and Jakes first day at big school
I think Olly wanted to go too
Come on Mum......
Sorry it was such a long post.....now pop over to Annies for more smiles.
Take Care xx
