So [livejournal.com profile] thekumquat and myself are back! Did you miss us?

We have been to the island of Cumbrae in Scotland for the last 5 days with [livejournal.com profile] lizw, [livejournal.com profile] djm4 and the three kids B, C and R. It was wonderful, even when it rained, which means it must have been good. It has also failed to put me off wanting children, be very afraid.

Millport, the only village on Cumbrae, seemed to have been caught in a time warp. It was very reminiscent of childhood seaside holidays and has not changed very much since Victorian times. Anyway, you can read a much more eloquent write up on [livejournal.com profile] thekumaquat's LJ but highlights included.

Lots of beautiful scenery and walks.
Making up bedtime stories with B for C and R.
Seeing more wildlife in 5 days than in two years in London.
Remaking the Matrix after B discovered that my camera could take video - staring and directed by B as Neo, C as several agents, and Piggy as Morpheus. Piggy was acting against type as she normally spends most of her time being carried around by R.
[livejournal.com profile] djm4's roast dinner and fresh scones.
Snuggling with [livejournal.com profile] lizw and [livejournal.com profile] thekumquat.
Going on cycle rides round the island.
Feeding acrobatic seagulls on the ferry back.
Generally just chilling out and getting away from it all.

Special thanks have to go to [livejournal.com profile] lizw, without her we would never have gone.
