Pictures from our whirlwind tour (3)

Round three 🙂

This adorable bundle of fluff and purrs is our family cat, Sam. He’s such a treasure, and is whiling his way through his old age now. He’s sixteen and a half now!

Meeting the newcomers (and having a cuddle at the same time – even better!)

Mum’s beautiful yellow roses. She and I share the same favourite flower!

On her birthday, Sian, Peter, Matthew and I headed out to Loch Ness with mum for a boat cruise and lots of tea and cake. Above is Urquhart Castle.

This is the weather we experienced for most of the boat trip, haha!

L-R: Matthew, Fingal, Derek, me, my insane hair in the Scottish weather.
Peter and Mum relaxing. And getting ready to ‘Sian face’.

Sian and I, doing our best ‘Sian face’. ‘Sian face’ was the injoke of the visit – Sian has a very expressive face, and loves to make us giggle. One time she managed to do so so comprehensively that we spent the whole of the next two days doing our best approximations of the ‘Sian face’. Brilliant.

Yes, my siblings are as silly as I am.

Why do you ask?

The boys at Loch Ness.



As well as monopoly, we played lots of Rummikub.

Fingal loves it!

    I looooove these pictures. It makes me fondly remember getting to spend time with you, your family, and friends last summer in Scotland. Good times! I loved that trip! Why can't we live in the same country? Wouldn't that be awesome?

    My husband's parents just returned from Scottland. They loved it! It looks like you had a great time!
