The older two have been away since Saturday morning up in Oban with daughter and SIL No2. So while they have been away daughter No 1 has been moving Bob into the room with the gruesome twosome and moving her room to his ready to put a cot in for Spud. As I had been working all weekend I was not able to help out, luckily the other set of grandparents had been on hand, as well as a good friend, so I went round today and took the twins out for a while to let her get on. We had actually been looking for piles of leaves to play in but could not find any in a safe place for me to watch the two of them so we went down the fishery instead. Lets just say their waterproof suits and wellies did not do a lot to keep them dry!!
Did a separate blog post on them here.
|lots of fun in the puddles|
Shopping day today. Morrisons still has pumpkins at fifty pence, they also had butternut squash and turnips as well. I also picked up some leeks and parsnips as well as some large srping onions that were reduced. One of our favourite meals is a pile of vegetables chopped up sprinkled with oil and seasoning and thrown in the over for approx forty five minutes then add some sliced tomatoes and chopped peppers and finish cooking for ten more minutes. Great served with an egg, some cold meat or even with some cooked lentils stirred through before serving.
I know also have a pile of chopped veg in the freezer that will do at least two more nights.

Trying to make the most of the nice weather we have been having and so asked Bob if he fancied a bit of fishing and Fifi a walk, Bob accepted our offer Fifi did not. So while Bob and Granddad fished I walked four miles. Bob managed nearly two hours of fishing before he started to get bored, he really does enjoy it. We then went back to the car for a snack and into the play park for about forty five minutes until it got chilly and Bob wanted to head back to the car.

Had been in Troon doing holiday cover at the complex and had a wander round the shops afterwards. We went into a small greengrocer shop for some fruit. The owner asked me did I make banana loaf, I said yes so he handed me a bag of brown bananas for free. To be honest with you very few of them even had brown bits on and everyone was usable. Lots of yummy banana treats made with some handed over for the kids as well.
|lots and lots of bananas|
Have noticed in a morning for a week or so now that there seem to be zillions of very fine spider webs strung across everywhere, you go out to the car and have to fight your way through them, its quite quite horrible as they cling on to you. A lot of it is not webs in the sense of the word it is just strands and strands across everywhere. What worries me is where are all the spiders??

Was beginning to think I was not going to get this and had planned on phoning yesterday, but it turned up Thursday. A line can now be drawn under the whole sorry saga of the car that is no more.
