D & I on the roof of the Stirling Jail in Scotland

view from the jail - doesn't it look like a storybook?

Where has this month gone?!

My friend, Robynne, emailed me earlier this week to check when we'd be coming to collect the trailer we're borrowing for our holiday.

I said something like, "can we come on the weekend before we leave?"

She said, "you do realise that's THIS weekend?"


No, I hadn't.

Somehow I thought there was plenty of time to get our holiday organised.

I made a travel list last night for the babies (D and I have our own travel checklists - yes, it's nerdy, but it works) and have given it to Nanny V to start putting things aside.

Looks like the next few days will be busy busy busy.

Let's hope the babies like travel as much as their parents do.

my second meet-up with a blog friend -
Suzanne and I both travelled to SCOTLAND to meet up.
This is Loch Lomond

Stirling, Scotland -
I get such a kick out of this pic - it's 10 pm at night. NIGHT! We're not used to this in SA as it gets dark around 7pm; 8pm in Cape Town

The Forth of Firth - Edinburgh, Scotland
Another thing I get a kick out of - this time for how it sounds
What amazed me is people push their prams across this bridge that looks like a highway (motorway/ freeway)

the famous Wallace Memorial, taken from our B&B's window. Just to show you how uninformed I am... I'll confess that I'd never heard of it before we arrived in Scotland. No, I did not watch Braveheart :)
I must say, I have never, ever been as cold as I was in Scotland. Somehow that cold goes right into your bones. Brrrr.


  1. Enjoy your weekend - in Clarens if I understand correctly?

  2. Yip, Clarens! We're actually only going on Tuesday but lots to do!

  3. Beautiful pics! Have a great time!

  4. I posted about vacation today too, but ours is not until next month. I mentioned you in my post too...check it out! : )

    Great pictures-that second one looks like a perfect storybook town!

  5. New follower! I just stumbled upon your blog this evening. I have 7.5 month old twin boys, Clayton and Connor.

  6. Lovely photos :)
    I can only imagine how International "cold weather" is worse than ours. Brrr
