Eldest daughter, partner, and 4 year old and one year old, arrived Thursday. Both the DP and I are only just upright.
Friday they all went to the Museum of Scottish Lighthouses.
While Grandma was doing her volunteering (and trying to knock the business managers nose off.)
Today, following an evening of much wine quaffing, everyone, (apart from Grandma who had quaffed far too much, but really wanted a bit of peace and quiet), went off to Aden Country Park. Which among other things, ruined mansion, Museum, also has working circa 1950 farm.
But the boys enjoyed themselves, boys do tend to roar and try to be scary.
When they returned, it was Grandmas turn. While the wee one had a nap, I instructed how to make a pirate out of a loo roll inner.
Seriously, all his own work. Let me know if you want to know how, or are daft enough.
We made a pirate hat out of newspaper and skull and crossbones printed off and glued on.
Together we made, Pirate mask, Captain Hook's hook, from plastic cup and foil, and spyglass from kitchen paper inner. One happy Pirate, looking fierce, as thats what Pirates do apparently.
Plan was to let the kids fly a kite. Big Kids took over.
Little kids didnt seem to mind.
They return home tomorrow.
And leave me with one big question. Why did I have four daughters?
