oh yes the sun is shining in scotland. let's just say we're more than a little bit excited about this, and it's meant to last the week. the week!! surely that deserves some sort of sun dance and chanting to the gods in thanks, or you can do what we did, which was whip out our pasty legs, slap on the factor 50 and get the tesco £2 paddling pool out. i know, i know. no expense spared in this little house ;)


in true british style, after complaining of the lack of good weather the next thing to fall from our lips is...'it's too hot, it's too hot.' so it was time for a cool down inside. 



we've never been opposed to caleb watching tv (not to the square-eyed degree of course!) but he has never took an interest. until lately. the whole sitting down in front of the tv cracks me up, but it never lasts long and he'll move away and play.
note to self...remember to turn the tv off, if my child is not watching the mickey mouse clubhouse then why the hell am i?!

cool down done. it was time for more paddling action. for a boy who refuses to keep his hat on he has got a strange idea of what constitutes as head gear...



oh and i feel the need to point out in the above pictures caleb's face looks a bit red, you can rest assure that's not sunburn. the crazy boy kept bending and dipping his whole face in the water. once an underwater baby, always a underwater baby!

an added bonus to our day was michael getting home early from work :) while i got dinner ready the boys went outside to play football. only one and already football daft. all part of daddy's master plan ;)

then we had our second al fresco meal of the day, seriously scotland this is crazy good.
let the sun continue, we've got a bucket load of sun cream in sweet anticipation :)

  3. It is so lovely to be able to get outside and enjoy the garden...I love watching mine run about and laugh, just being children. I must remember to get my £2 paddling pool out tomorrow morning so that it can warm up for the afternoon :)
