More Holiday Snaps and a Little Tea for Tuesday

Hello again everyone

I would like to share some more photographs from mine and Wee Man's Edinburgh holiday.
I don't know about you, but when I'm on holiday I like to have the odd treat or two, and Edinburgh was no exception.

There's a fabulous Cafe called Mimi's and on the recommendation of my son and his girlfriend we met them there.
I completely forgot to take any photos at all of our lunch or cakes as I was so in awe of the place.. But I did capture this one on the way out. I had a slice of the lemon meringue cheesecake on the top shelf there. It was so light, it was almost a mousse! 
Oh, and I did get this photo of my coffee to show Elizabeth and the T gang (phew!)

 The whole place is beautifully decorated and has cosy nooks with soft lounge seating and low tables.
I definitely recommend everyone to go there! 
After lunch we went for a walk along the 'shore' and saw lots of swans. I can't say I've ever seen so many in one place before. Quite a few of them were still cygnets, but practically grown.
I also saw this quite near our hotel

And on another day we went to a place called Dynamic Earth

Dynamic Earth is a 5 star visitor experience which invites you to take a journey through time to witness the story of planet Earth. Through a series of interactive exhibits, state of the art technology and even a 4D encounter you will feel the heat of a bubbling volcano, face the chill of polar ice, fly across the globe before crash landing in a tropical rainforest. As if this wasn’t enough, Dynamic Earth is home to Scotland’s only 360 degree full dome film theatre. (from their website
It is one of the most interesting places I have ever been, and much to my delight, Wee Man enjoyed it too. 
We will go again. 
Perhaps the most amazing thing there, for both of us, was a real iceberg!! 
Not a giant one obviously, but real all the same.

Well now, I hope you have enjoyed seeing more of our holiday snaps, and you haven't fallen asleep by now, hehe.

Thank you so much for popping in.
Do take care, be well and be happy.

They are the words given for The Craft Barn's Calendar Challenge for October.

Hi Everyone :D

I am entering the craft barn challenge almost at the eleventh hour. 
But in my defence, (should I need one), this month has been extra busy and subsequently flown by faster than this year has already done so! 

Anyway, here is my offering:
Again I used my gelatos, and achieved the colours I wanted by mixing on an acrylic block and I used my silver pen for the outlines and lettering.
The tape above the dates has little spiders and webs along it. Cute huh!

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments, I DO appreciate every single one of them!

For anyone interested in more holiday photos from our recent Edinburgh trip, I will post more later today.

Until next time,
Take care, Be well & Be happy
{{Hugs}} Mo :o)) x

Tea on Tuesday and some

 Holiday Bits n Bobs

Hi everyone, Wee Man here :D 
Me and granny are back from a few days holiday in Edinburgh, so we would like to share a few photos with you.
This is where we stayed. The staff were really nice and friendly.
Granny liked the tea and coffee things in our room. 
One night granny had fish and chips and I had
We really enjoyed going on the trams
and we went past the depot. 
There are 26 trams in Edinburgh and we found out that they can travel at 43mph (70kmh).
We went to a Build A Bear Workshop
where I made Goldie the Golden Retriever and High Springer the Springer Spaniel.
I loved seeing this bus; we didn't get to go on it, but we might next time.
I also enjoyed diving into the ball pit at Gambado's soft play centre.

Well that's all for now; I hope you enjoyed these pictures. 
Granny will share this post with Elizabeth and her tea friends and she said she will do another blog post to show you some more photos of our holiday. I hope that's ok.

Bye for now

Hugs, Wee Man

and granny too :D

a Little Different

Hi everybody

I hope you haven't forgotten I am here; I know I have been a non-blogger for a few weeks, but life takes one like that sometimes doesn't it? I have been busy crafting and taking some art workshops, I just haven't blogged about it. 
Anyway, I wanted to share some photographs with you that I took while I was out and about the other day.

A bug hotel 

Three beautiful houses 
A Lily pond 
And this escapee was as big as a computer mouse. I almost missed him at first because he looks so like the Autumn leaves that were laying round about. 

I realise I have also been quite lax in my visits, for which I offer my profound apologies; I promise I will try to get back on track once the school holidays are over. Two weeks of adventuring coming up, beginning on Tuesday with a trip to Edinburgh. Wee Man has been doing his countdown duties and we are currently on 4 Sleeps to the off. 

Many thanks for your visit; I truly appreciate your taking the time. 
Wishing you good health and happiness
With Love
((hugs)) Mo :o)) x
