Day 6



This was a really really great day. We started by getting up at 6am and catching a train so we were in edinburgh by 9am! a small hot chocolate with marshmellows was consumed and then we started are day - a trip to Holyrude castle where Mary queen of scots took residence when she moved back to england after becpme a widow in france where she had grown up. She was Elizabeth 1sts cousin however it was her cousin that in the end signed her death warrant - family fueds!!!!
Anyway that was an amazing and the best part was seeing this beautiful mountain which I want to live on. We also passed some beautiful book shops where i bought 3 beautifully illustrated childrens books.

I want to live on this mountain one day!


Then we went around all the amazing thrift stores and book shops where i bought far too many cool things, then took a break at the cafe where Harry potter was written, Then it was the museum of scotland, another indulgence into history i was in my element however the area where the stuffed animals and dinosaurs lived was closed :( but we dressed up and had lots of fun.
It was then getting later and so we had a lovely dinner then took some last minute evening pics before taking the train home what a lovely day!


Day 7

Rest and Relaxation

We were all pretty tired after the busy week so the last day consisted of walking into town grabbing a pic nic lunch and lying on the grass staring into the sky for a few hours, then eating an icecream and general nice things! We also took a visit to alices mums studio just before we got the train home which was beautiful! A really great week full of fun and smiles :)
