Busy bee

It has been good to see bees returning to our garden in the odd break between torrential downpours. It's gotten so bad that I had to report a flooded pathway to the council. The other day after walking back with the kiddo on her bike, I tried to walk around the swimming pool that had formed on the path and got my foot  stuck into a foot of mud. Not happy. Am very impressed with the council who have phoned twice to report on their inspection and to let me know they are going to try to fix it even though there isn't a budget.
Anyhoo, that's by the by. We have been busy since kiddo has left nursery. We have visited the brilliant Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh, been to see jousting at Linlithgow Palace, spent a few days in Dundee and nearly walked onto to beach stranded jelly fish in Broughty Ferry. Been to visit the woods and the excellent EICA (Edinburgh International Climbing Arena) to enjoy their softplay. Then there was a visit to East Links Park (a great fun day out based on a farm in East Lothian). It's been exhausting, sometimes expensive but all together fun.
Of course, there have been days stuck at home. Some good. Some not so much. I miss being out and about on those days so much.
I have pictures. I'll post them up soon but for now, we are off to Edinburgh as we have some friends visiting us from London. Poor things are leaving 30 degrees to come up north to rain, rain, rain. Bet it's a relief ;)
