54 Days of Summer – Day 28

It was a hot day , as in hot enough we felt like we were back on holiday.

We got the paddling pool out and spent most of the day splashing around in there :)

54 Days of Summer – Day 26

It was bright and it was sunny and Ru was not 100% . Rather than let the tickets go to waste Craig planned to take the girls and i would stay home with the boy , after some calpol though the boy cheered up and at the last second decided he wanted to go .

Anyone who has been to Edinburgh Zoo can tell you how hilly it is and alot of walking is involved but the boy was wonderful and managed to cope with it all and have fun.

54 Days of Summer – Day 25

Im not sure im every getting caught up with these posts , we now have about 10 days left and im falling more and more behind…

Anyways Sunday was suppose to be a family day out again, the weather was dry(ish) and we wanted to check out a local park that had recently been upgraded. Instead we stayed home and let the boy rest , we just wanted him feeling better so he would join us on the trip to the zoo .

The children did have a few pounds left over from the shopping trip a few days earlier so we went to Morrisons, Ru did want to come but the walk from the car to the shops was to much for him and he had to be carried the rest of the trip.

54 Days of Summer – Day 24

It was Saturday and for the first time in a while i was waking up kid free, i grabbed my breakfast and sat on the computer – finally remembered that we were planning to go to Edinburgh Zoo on the Monday and i really needed to get the tickets (as we wanted to see the Panda’s and you need to pre book a slot for that) . So i spent the almost £60 on non refundable/exchangeable tickets then called my mum to see how the kids were . I was then met with the words “I think Ruaridh is sick”.

Of course !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He was tried and burning up , barely eating or drinking and could barely do anything except lay on the couch looking awful . The rest of Saturday was spent running around after him and keeping the girls happy. An early night for him and plenty of medicine in the hope rest would heal him and he would be ok for Monday.

54 Days of Summer – Day 23

I think Fridays are my faviroute days during holidays. The kids and i meet friends for a nice , long and lazy lunch (somewhere with soft play or park if weather is nice) then we go to my parents for dinner and i get to come home all alone.

This Friday was no different , the sun was shinning so choose a local restaurant “The Byre ” . It has a lovely garden and outdoor play area for kids and has been our regular spot this summer , if you can ignore terrible service and bored staff its not a bad place. I ordered meals , kids ones come with juice and a separate drink for myself , i asked if drinks get delivered with meal and was told no then the waiter wandered away from me – i had to ask if i could get the juice and he seemed confused and asked if i actually wanted them… I don’t think i have received decent service ever in this place but it appears to be the only place local to us (and easy to get to for non drivers) that offers what we are looking for so we stick with it and just laugh through the mistakes…

I did get to take my nephew along to join in this week :) , he is getting so big – almost all toddler now.

54 Days of Summer – Day 22

We actually left the house and done something , ok we walked to the local shopping center but still we were dressed and out the house before dinner :)

We also went with a purse (sort of) full of cash , we still had some Euro’s left from holiday so went to change them to pounds and the kids got to hit the toy shop .

We also stocked up on munchies and had a lovely movie night when we finally got home.

54 Days of Summer – Day 19

That basically described us all on this day , we were still tired from the journey and from the past few weeks.

We mostly spent the day just being lazy , we did go out for lunch with my mother in law to our local Dimaggio’s where the kids could run around (they have a small soft play) and we could catch up . Then we went to visit my sister and her kids for a while before going home for an early night.

54 Days of Summer – Day 18

This basically sums up the Sunday we got home , it was 5am before we got back and the girls got up at 8.30am . I was tired , grumpy and miserable that the holiday was over.
