Sunday we had the wee party for the birthday girl. We had cake, sang happy birthday, pressies, tea etc - the kids were really good. Mum seemed to get something out of it- smiled and had a twinkle in her eye for a bit. we all had a general catch up to which was funny. Will be going back in July. Mum seems well cared for and the home is nice. My cousins call in regularly and keep the staff on their toes. They really care about mum which is lovely. As niece's they had a bettter relationship with her than I did as her daughter.
We made it to the Electric Brae which is an optical illusion - hill where your car will appear to be rolling up hill, Dunure and to the park.
On Monday we took the long route home in the hooligan winds through Moffat, St Mary's Loch, Selkirk and Kelso. Stopped by Grey Mares Tail waterfall for a stretch of the legs and the cafe at the Loch. Never seen the Loch so full. All the rivers were rather full. Gales a howling- reports of trees down and cars squished.
View from the caravan on the first evening - doesn't do it justice was pretty wow with sunlight like a spotlight - very heaven like through the clouds
I often only ever get this view of them - will show you what I mean one day!!
