I’m struggling a little to remember how warm it was over the Easter holidays – we had one particularly lovely walk to the Tyne estuary from mum and dad’s house in Tyninghame. We went to the North Pole, as usual, no visit home would be complete without a trip to our favourite spot……or a touch of climbing and leaping too!
Today is a complete contrast, we have driving wind and rain and the winter hats and gloves have been back out for the last week. I had joyfully washed and stored away all our winter gear – far too easily lulled into thinking the cold weather was over! Finn was delivered to Inverness early this morning to join the team bus to an athletics meeting in Dundee, we picked him up several hours earlier than expected because the meet was cancelled……apparently the officials were so cold and wet that it got to the point that the poor starter couldn’t fire his gun reliably. Finn is very disappointed that his race didn’t go ahead but I think under the circumstances it is very understandable.
Tomorrow we’re all home with no commitments or competitions. I think we’ll be out exploring some more of our new home area…..maybe a trip to South Loch Ness which we haven’t visited so far. Fingers crossed it will be a little drier at least!
I hope you are having a lovely Bank Holiday weekend. Has the weather been more kind to you?
