April 2018

What a month! Thankfully no April Fool's pranks but lot's of other things going on!
Euan's Easter holidays were full of activities. We started with a camping trip to Comrie, then as Daddy was on holiday a more adventurous walk and overnight stay to a bothy at Glen Feshie was undertaken. Euan did very well, walking for over an hour, in the snow and carrying a rucksack to reach the (5*) bothy!
After a couple of days to recover, we all headed down to Belford to carry out a bit on DIY on our old house. Euan made a very good job of painting the cupboard under the stairs!
The following week it was Mummy's turn to entertain Euan - we had a trip to Edinburgh to the mining museum at Newtongrange, a visit to the cat cafe in Aberdeen, posh breakfast in Dundee and a bike ride to the Madoch Centre in St Madoes for hot chocolate and cake. The final weekend of the holidays involved another camping trip - this time, to Aberfoyle, where we cycled part of the Rob Roy Way and made pizza in Daddy's Dutch oven - very scrummy.
We were invited to celebrate Mirabelle's 50th birthday at the Subub House on the 21st April - it was a lovely sunny evening and we had a lovely time sitting outside chatting to the other guests
As it was the 'World of Work' week at school, Euan had the opportunity to spend the day with Uncle Brodie to find out about farming. Euan was most disappointed that no lambs were born during his vist!
It's now the summer term at cubs and lots of interesting activities are planned. Euan is especially looking forward to making fire!!

The year so far.

Last year.
