Dig in

Got my free seeds from the BBC's Dig in project. That's the second
year it's been running. All you have to do is register and if they've
got any left they'll send you a free pack of seeds.

I don't have much room but I've planted out the salads and the beans.
Looking forward to see what comes up.

Today's View - scraping ice off the car

Today's View - scraping ice off the car. It's April the 21st and I'm
scraping ice off the windscreen of the car. Don't think I can remember
a year where is doing that at this late stage. Spring?

Days Out - Greenbank Gardens

Greenbank House

Had day out at another NTS (National Trust for Scotland) property, Greenbank Gardens. Determined to get value from my £6.50 a month memebership this year, it would seem. This one is only about 20 minutes from my front door.

cherry blosom

Can't really say much as the garden is still pretty bare with spring be very late for a change. I do imagine the gardens will look great in full bloom. All we seen was daffodils, thousands of them and cherry blosom. The gardens are well laid and easy to access, ample parking and we were able to push the pram round with out a problem.


I was disappointed that there is no access to the classic Georgian house. Closed to the public. Hopefully that's something that the NTS will look at. Would be great to see a wealthly Glasgow merchants country house was like. Shame.

If your into your gardening then it's definitely good place for you to visit. I will go back but probably later in the year to see the place in a bit more colour.

Exercise the baby lungs boo

Days Out - Calderglen Park

Spent a great day on Saturday up at Calderglen Park. The sun was out and I was pushing the pram. Happy days. Took it a bit off road and up round one of the many nature trails. Not something I would recommend but the big inflatable tyres and sprung suspension coped well.

Took loads of photographs or so I thought. Having now looked back most of them were of my daughter so my post of great the park is, and being able to show it has been tempered slightly. I've included what doesn't have baby Bunten in. Not much.


The photograph above is the from the bridge over the weir.


As you can see from these photographs Spring still hasn't quite sprung yet despite the last few days of cracking sunshine. The branches are still bare and not much signs of buds.


This photograph is not so great, this is a waterfall, one of a couple through the park but it wasn't flowing in it's full glory. The dark bit in the middle is where the water usually runs. Wasn't much volume probably due to the weather.

Next is a trip back to get more photographs and a visit to the bird and animal enclosures as well as having a look round the big house. If you get a chance give it a go for a couple hours. You might enjoy it.

Running repairs

I have plumbed new depths to keep a set of earbuds going. Normally I
would just get a new pair but these Goldring GX200 have been
exceptional. The sound quality immense especially compared to the duff
ones you get with the iPhone.

These though I think won't be on the go much longer, even after my
excellent running repair.

Laughing at mummy boo

Today's View

Today's View - well yesterday's in all honesty. Just liked how it
looked like the digger was coming out of my wing mirror. Kind of
works, well I think anyway.

A frustrated ends in a yawn boo

It's a bit wet outside

It's a bit wet outside and no goretex, thank goodness for the TNF and
their foresight of adding DWR. I'm happy and I'm still dry.

There's a joke there somewhere.....(tags: iPhone, photo, sweets, smarties, joke)

There's a joke there somewhere. I'm childish I know but it made me
laugh this morning. Couldn't believe it when I opened my tube of
smarties and I had Uranus staring me in the face. Chocolate smartie
