Some catching up - these photos are from the nursery trip which took place over a week ago. We went to Finlaystone. N and I enjoyed ourselves though there were a few Mums who didn't like it at all, not one bit, and have been grumbling about it ever since - apparently it was too expensive (the trip was unsubsidised as it's a community nursery, money is scarce and coach hire is expensive), there were too many midges (like we can fix that!), it was too cold, the coach journey wasn't long enough(!), there wasn't enough to do (though their children seemed to be enjoying themselves and were able to find plenty of entertainment). We had some time with a Ranger which I think was pitched for older children and we could easily have done without, but we'll know better next time.
Anyway, it was damp and cold to start off with, and the midges were indeed bad (just looking at the woodland photos again starts to make me feel itchy!), but later on the sun came out, we all moved up to the gardens and overall it was a good day.

Just a quick post as we have sunshine this morning, so I'm off to do a bit of gardening and fill up the organic wheelie bin with some of those pesky weeds before the bin collection later today...
