Where is the sun?

It has been funny weather today. Mainly raining but then every now and then it clears up and makes you think it is going to be lovely for rest of the day but then the rain starts again. We've been a bit under the weather last couple of days. Henrik picked up tummy bug from somewhere and was sick Thursday night so we didn't get much sleep and are feeling very tired but have managed to resist getting the tummy bug so far.

We got a little kids brio train set for Henrik when we were in Liverpool. Henrik absolutely loves it. Nathan came to play with him on Thursday and we had an incident...before Henrik has been very happy for Nathan to play with any of his toys, even the ones Henrik was playing with but now he was not impressed. There are four carriages in the train set which would logically be two each but now Henrik wanted all of them! So it all ended in tears with Henrik throwing one of the carriages at Nathan and with superb aim manage to hit Nathan squarely on the head so we had Henrik crying because I'd told him that he can't throw toys at people and Nathan crying because he had just had a train land on his head. Nice relaxing afternoon playtime ;)

Here is one more picture from camping. Henrik playing on the beach at the last campsite where we stayed.

Thursday's thoughts

There are still more camping photos to come. They just need some sorting first, we took 839 photos in a week! What can you say - it's so easy to snap away with digital cameras...But here are some pictures of ferns we took when we went for a walk in the Tay Forest. I love the unfurling ferns, they are so delicate and so pretty.

Henrik hasn't been sleeping well over the last couple of days. He goes to bed well but then at some point he wakes up and cries. He had temperature on Monday night but Tuesday night and last night there wasn't anything wrong with him he was just very restless. Last night he did actually sleep but woke up at 5am, not good when you have sleepy parents! He did come to our bed but didn't stay still for long. Now he is having a long morning nap to make up for the early wake up time.

David has ordered a shed and it's arriving tomorrow. That will make life much easier as we don't have that much storage space at the moment. All of David's tools are in boxes in the cupboard under the stairs and if he needs one tool he needs to take all of the boxes out of the cupboard! So all the little quick jobs that need doing are not actually that quick and little when you need to spend five minutes moving boxes to get the hammer out of the cupboard. The shed wont be put up until next week though as it is Olly's 30th birhtday celebrations this weekend which will keep us busy.

Camping photos 1

Here are some pictures from the campsite in Perthshire were we stayed for three nights with Richard and Beth and the boys. The weatehr was overcast and cloudy and it rained every now and then but overall it was quite good. We went for couple of walks, explored Pitlochry and generally just chilled around. Henrik enjoyed throwing stones into the loch. The campsite was by Loch Tummel and it was nice and quiet.

We are just back from week's camping in Scotland and we had a brilliant time. The weather wasn't that brilliant to start with but by the end of the week it was boiling hot. Henrik loved the sea. I'm off to uni now, school away day...walk by a river followed by a pub lunch, nice easy way back to real life :)
