Winter in Wollaton

It took a bit of bribery and persuasion to get everyone (Maisy)
to leave the house this morning, but oh so worth it when we got there.

That light.

Craigs Lodges and Beecraigs Country Park


The lodges we stayed in near Linlithgow,
and a slightly soggy Christmas Eve walk 
with friends in Beecraigs Country Park.

Edinburgh's Winter Wonderland

A tram trip into Edinburgh. On an actual tram.
More rubbish attempts at selfies.... it's not easy*
and Maisy's strategy for making my eyes look semi-normal in photos.
A ride on the Helter Skelter (and some extra slides sneaked)
A wander through The Winter Wonderland and a hopeful request
from Molly for us to take her on the 'Star Flyer.'
No Way. Have you seen it? How close to the Scott Monument?
But instead, a consolation bag of hot Churros before our tram ride home.


*But now that I have this
Thank You Santa.

Cross Lanes Cafe

We are travelling home, for the holidays
And in our eternal quest for better places 
to break our journey than Scotch Corner Services,
And, yes it is better than Scotch Corner Services.
Way Better. And they have sheep grazing on the roof.
