First, a big thank you to all who left comments on my last post, I'm sticking with the big photos now after the feedback.
Today all were back at school/nursery after the half term break from Mon to Wed.
On Monday we went to Largs to visit the park, beach and charity shops. We even stayed to have lunch in a cafe - really splashing the cash for us! We were first to arrive at the park and I amused myself by taking some photos while A & N played. Later we visited the little beach and added to our collections - sea glass and interesting little stones for me, razor shells for A, and big lumps of stone/brick with sea weed attached for N. We had ice creams, mine was tablet flavoured - a little too sweet even for me. I took numerous photos of the little ferry making its way back and forth to the Isle of Cumbrae, and sometimes passing yachts too. The charity shop pickings were poor, just more cuddly toys for the kids ("Pleeeaase Mum") and nothing for me. The cafe we ate at was fine - rather a basic menu but small and quiet (I'm not keen on crowds) though the waitress should really have worn a longer top over her leggings - her black and white polka dot knickers rather caught the eye whenever she turned her back!
We stayed at home on Tuesday. I finally got round to hanging some pictures which have been waiting for a home for years. A few in the bedroom...
And I finally took down the smashed mirror on the landing. One night, quite a long time ago, the loft door fell open with a loud bang. "We're lucky it didn't break the mirror" I said. "Nonsense, it wouldn't do that - I'll show you", said hubby - CRASH!
It was such a dull day, the photos are terrible, but it helps hide the dust etc!
Then on Wednesday we had snow. Horrible, wet, yucky snow. We waited for it to go off before we went sledging. It didn't stop, but turned to rain instead. So we went sledging in the rain. I must get myself some waterproofs. Someone had built a snowman family in the park.
My bowl of beach treasure.
I finally found out today about my interview results. I've been added to the waiting list. So, not a definite yes, but not a definite no either. I have my next interview a week today...
