Good Afternoon, coffee by my side so I will do a catch up today as it has been a good few days since my last post. In my last entry I was telling you I was going to Ellen’s seventh birthday party at a place called Active Kids, last Saturday. Wow what a place it is build at the back of a large farm way out from the nearest village and perfect for kids to have a great time. There is all sorts of things for them to play on, the usual swings roundabouts etc then there is mini golf, a big castle, a flying fox(a zip wire) pedal go Karts on a track climbing frames and even animals so much to do. We said hello to Ellen and that was the last we saw of them till eating time. A quick bite to eat and then off they went again for more fun until it was time for the cake and the singing of Happy Birthday. Everything is laid on except the cake. It is charged per head but for busy working parents it must be a godsend all you have to do is turn up. The centre is open to the public you just pay your money for the day if you are at a party you wear a coloured tabard so you can be spotted as the place is so big it would be difficult to round them all up but with the tabards you can pick them out not bother at all. We were very fortunate with the weather we had a cloudless blue sky most unusual for here and warm too. If the weather is bad the kids get there wellies and raincoats on and just carry on but we were lucky. Wish I had been a bit younger well a lot younger I hear you say so I could have had a go on that flying fox.
Been a good week up here a bit showery the last couple of days but the garden is needing it as Stuart has been watering every evening. My tomatoes are doing well and in flower, I have six plants this year in two little plastic greenhouses three plants I bought when I was on holiday they are now in a grow bag the other three will get transplanted this coming week as they are a bit smaller and have not all flowered yet so will have to wait to plant them in their grow bag.
The pictures at the top are of the countryside around Dunkeld had a run to there last Saturday after the party as it was such a lovely day. I have shown you photos of the area before but last time it was snowing so now you have seen it in all weathers. It is a big favourite with Stuart and myself we did a lot of our courting round this area and I spent many Sunday’s there as a child. The hill we climbed is where I used to pick brambles as a girl with my parents and Mum then used to make Bramble Jelly. I was very surprised when Stuart and I came upon Bramble bushes in the same spot last Saturday I don’t think it can be the same bushes as it must be well over 50 years since I picked berries there but I can dream.
I think that’s about it for today hope you are all having a great weekend till next time. Love
