I’ve noticed recently that a haven’t been doing so well at this whole Mum thing. I’ve been a bit shouty and a bit boring and lazy. So, it’s time to be better. Have more fun with the littles and give the some new experiences and great memories.
Connie has been wanting to go on a train for ages now. I was supposed to take her to Aberdeen last year but she fell ill the day before we were supposed to go.
When we dropped my friend off at the train station on Friday it’s all Connie could talk about. Trains, trains, trains.
So Saturday I booked us a ticket to Aviemore, just a short half an hour journey, but still plenty of fun!
We went into town, picked up my new glasses (I’m in love with them by the way!) and I let Connie choose where to go for lunch. Pizza Hut. Oh joy. Joking, I frighin’ love Pizza Hut!
We made it in time and found a seat, Connie was so surprised that there were tables on the train! “I can draw here Mummy!”
She took great joy in keeping a hold of the ticket and handing it to the conductor!
I kept pointing out cows, sheep, houses, trees, birdies etc out the window and 9/10 she wasn’t quick enough looking up to see them. So eventually she just sat staring out the window constantly so she wouldn’t miss anything!
I couldn’t even get a picture of Connie with her cake before it was gone!
When Daddy arrived -at last- we headed of to The Funhouse at The Hilton Coylumbridge. After I gave him a telling off for not getting Angus changed out of his pyjamas.
The kids had fun in the soft play and there were minimal tantrums when we went to leave. Win.
So here’s to more trips like that and more firsts for the album!
