Still in Edinburgh...last full day but it should be great!


It's Ada's Birthday - she is a mighty 2 years old today!

She has been Adadorable since day one...


Her first birthday bash was a long day...now for number 2!

Parting is such sweet sorrow...


Helping with a little clear out here with a trip to the dump, sadly among the items to go Michael and Rose are parting with their seahorse heads, which made their first appearance here in this Kid Canaveral promotion video back in 2014. Unless someone could give them a good home?

No Monkey business...


Caught Mara's performance last night at the 'Monkey Barrel' comedy club here in Edinburgh. The Spontaneous Players' gave us some 'Spontaneous Sherlock' - very funny, they really are a talented bunch - if you get the chance, go check them out - they are there every Thursday night.

Stepping in from the cold and climate change.


Stepping in from the cold in Scotland into a warm house with glasses on can be dangerous, as Michael knows only too well

Family & friends...lost without them

The viaduct in the town centre in Kilmarnock
Back in Edinburgh after a whirlwind visit to Ayrshire where we manged to have 12 get-togethers between Friday evening and Tuesday morning. This included  4 dinners/suppers, 2 lunches, 1 brunch and sadly 1 funeral. Huge thanks to our niece Anne-Marie and her husband Andrew for allowing us to use there lovely home in Kilmarnock as our base...thus allowing us a bit of continuity on the bed front. It was great to catch up with family and friends  though tinged with some sadness.
