We all had a lovely weekend in Aviemore for Mum's birthday. Joanne had won a first class carriage ride in the Santa train for 6 so they took mum and dad on the train. John, the boys and I surprised Mum by going on the train too! 
John could'nt get a ticket so he was a stowaway!!
We all enjoyed the Santa train.

After the train journey, we surprised Mum telling her we'd all be staying the night at the Macdonald Resort. We had a lovely meal at night and had a great time together.

Dad's 65th Birthday at Grannies Heilan Hame Friday 22nd of August I was on nightshift on the Thursday night so had a nice sleep in the morning and then got up and ready to leave mum and dad went to collect the boys from school and then we left. We had a good journey to Inverness but we had to have a toilet stop at Tesco, whilst there we also had a nice burger. We then set off to grannies Heilan Hame and we arrived about 6 o'clock. We had a good journey the boys were very good in the car. When we arrived we met up with Julie and Irene and then went into our caravan which was lovely. When we got into the caravan we did a little bit of unpacking and then we went over to the Boston bar restaurant for our meal. Ross and owen had fish and chips in a bucket Dad and Irene had sausages and mashed potatoes and Mum and I had had spit roast chicken and Julie had lasagna. It was very nice. We then went to the bar and it was the kids game time and owen won a game and he got a certificate for it it. Next it was the kids disco and they enjoyed that. Then a group came on, a married couple and they were called the time of your lives and they were really good. The sang lots of different music from the 60s onwards and had lots of different costumes. We had some nice drinks and then we went back to the caravan we were really late going to bed it was after 2am as we did more unpacking, it was a very good first day

Woke up at 8:45 nice long lie and dad made bacon and eggs which was lovely
Mum had given dad a  DVD player with 2 DVDs  and Joanne and I had given Dad a handmade wooden bench and table set for the garden.
I also gave him a nice bottle of malt whiskey on the day of his birthday.
John couldn't come this weekend as he was working.


I then got the boys ready washed and dressed and then I had my shower. Later on Joanne  and the kids came round.
We then went over to the bar and  to the kids activity which was the aviation morning we did this in may when I had my birthday there ,this time Ross won it and he got 2000 points and won an activity pack which was very pleased about.

Next up was making paper planes which the boys enjoyed and even I managed to do it!
Afterwords we went into Dornoch and had a look round it was lovely and sunny.
We went to the Dornoch cafe and patisserie for  lunch. I had a home-made macaroni pie with side salad, dad had a sausage roll and baked beans, The boys some of ours and a gingerbread man and mum had a prawn baguette.
We then went to a gift shop and mum bought the boys large water guns which they love playing with.
We then went back to the caravan had a coffee, Joanne came round to visit and then we all had a nice rest.
Joanne sent a funny text later on in the afternoon saying their caravan was b***** boiling and was like an oven! so Chris had to turn off the heating. They went out for a drive to look for a chemist and were given the wrong directions and they were sent on a wild goose chase! To top it off Katie had a temper tantrum in the car and eventually ended up with a nosebleed as was crying so much! Poor Chris had a headache with all the screaming.

At night we went to the Trentham hotel just outside Dornoch for Dad's birthday meal.
I had garlic mushrooms which are lovely to start with and Joanne had a big stack of onion rings which were yummy.


Irene and dad had Pea and ham soup, Julie had a breaded brie, Chris had garlic bread and mum had soup. Next Joanne myself and Julie all had sizzling steak with scallops which were lovely.


Mum had a sirloin steak and dad had a steak pie as did Chris and Irene. Ross, Owen  and Cameron  all had macaroni cheese and Katie had a pizza.
This is dads great birthday Cake look at all the animals
















Later on went back to the caravan site and went to be bar for the entertainment, the kids enjoyed all the kids games and then later on a man came on and did some singing and did some magic tricks too and he was very good.

I got up and dad had made my bacon and eggs again which was lovely, the boys got up shortly afterwards and had breakfast, after they got ready and we went out to play crazy golf which was fun.
The boys then had a play in the park and then we went back up to the entertainment complex and the boys played in the arcade for a little while I then went back to the caravan and I made some ham sandwiches for Joanne, Chris and the boys journey back home again. Joanne and Chris took the boys home but left Katie with us as the boys all had school again on the Monday. Mum, dad Julie, Irene and I all had one more night there, it was sad seeing the boys going back home again and I missed them for that night. Ross was saying "I'll miss you mummy"!





I love the sea in this photo it looks like it's silver


They all had a good journey home when they got home Jo did her 'ice bucket ' challenge and the boys thought it was funny! Later she took the boys to McDonald's for their tea and then dropped them off home.

Mum wasn't feeling great in the afternoon as she's been suffering from shingles so we took Katie Dunrobin castle it was a beautiful castle and we really enjoyed seeing it. Mum and Dad had been to it before dad enjoyed going back to it again. Katie was so good and love to walk in all the different rooms.





There was a beautiful garden in the castle and lots and lots of stairs to go down to it when we got to the bottom, a falconry show have just started and we enjoyed seeing it. A Falcon touched me with his wing twice during the display that was that was funny.  Lots of beautiful bird and I took lots of nice photos.











After the falconry show we went up to the castle cafe and dad and I had a coffee and a scone and Katie had a bread roll and a drink which was nice.

When we got back to the caravan it was about 4 o'clock and we all had a rest for a little while and then we went back into Dornoch  that night and went to the Sunderland hotel for a lovely meal.

I had the Haddock mornay then a raspberry creme brle, dad had glenmorrangie chicken which had bacon and Brie with a nice sauce then he had sticky toffee pudding. Mum had salmon with a lemon and dill sauce then chocolate velvet pie, Julie had salmon with a peppercorn sauce and like me she had the raspberry creme brle. Irene had gammon with a sauce then meringue with fruit and cream. She gave the meringue to my dad. Katie was funny when it came to the puddings, dad turned his back for a second and Katie took dad's sticky toffee pudding plate over for herself! It was funny 

After we went back to the bar and played bingo then watched the entertainment staff put on a show which was good.

Monday 25th

Got up and dad made our bacon and eggs, Katie enjoyed this and tucked in.
We packed the caravan and then we set off. Katie was cute and sang during some of the journey. Joanne was pleased to see Katie home again. She made us a nice sandwich then we took mum home and dad came with me to collect the boys from school.
It was lovely seeing them again.

Haggerston Castle July 2014
posted on 27/02/2015

Monday 14th July 
Got up bright and early at 7am, to get me, kids and cats ready. We had breakfast and then I had my shower. John and boys got ready whilst I fed the cats and did my litter tray duty!
Mum and Dad are coming up to cat sit.
Rory (3yrs)

Once all ready, I said goodbye to cats and we set off at 9.30.

We stopped off for a toilet break at Bruer and then went to Perth for lunch. We had a nice meal at the Harvester. I had spit roasted chicken with veg and mashed potatoes, Ross and Owen had macaroni and John had a burger with cheese and bacon.

We then carried on with our journey and arrived at Haggerston Castle at 4pm. The boys were kept occupied with the sat nav the whole journey and unusually didn't keep on about how long to go!

It was really busy when we arrived but eventually we checked into our caravan. The caravan was lovely and big.

Excuse the headless photo of John but I only wanted to have a photo of the caravan! 

I unpacked and John took the boys out for a walk. I of course had forgotten my foundation and I then made John take us to Berwick so I could get some. Typical, I even bought an extra bottle before we left..! We needed some supplies from tesco anyway so that was handy.

We had a chip shop tea, then we went to the bar. The star landers did the kids entertainment first then they sang. Later they did a show called Girls on Film which was good with songs from dirty dancing, pretty woman etc. The boys loved the arcade area which was huge and they especially enjoyed the Plants versus Zombies toy grabber machine. They enjoyed slushes and John and I enjoyed pints of Carling! 

We got back to the caravan at about 11.30.
A lovely first day

Tuesday 15th July

I woke up at 5.30 for some strange reason but luckily got back to sleep until 9. I was woken to the sound of the boys playing with their plants versus zombies toys and they were having great fun.

Plants versus zombies is a popular computer game and the boys have various soft toys of the characters.





It's amazing how their imagination works. We then had breakfast and I had my shower. 

We then had a walk around the park and it was huge, we took a few wrong turns as it was difficult to navigate around!







We went to the park and the kids enjoyed playing for a while

This was popular

Our caravan was in the Golf Village part of Haggerston and we were in the Belfry section, number 20. We went to a cafe nearby which was next to the mini golf course. It was called The Fairways. I had a cheese and red onion panini with salad, John had a panini too and also a bacon roll... greedy! The boys had a kids box with juice, ham sandwich, crisps and chocolate. It was very nice. 

We then went to the entertainment complex and in the bar was a wrestling contest. Three rounds with the "goodie and baddie" wrestlers. They were good, the boys seemed to like it too.

We enjoyed a beer watching this and the boys had a slush.
After this we went back to the caravan and had a nice rest. 
For tea we had a Papa Johns pizza which was lovely, John and I shared a large BBQ chicken pizza with potato wedges 





Ross had chicken poppers and Owen a cheese and tomato pizza which they enjoyed.

Then we went to the bar in the evening and the boys had great fun at the arcade playing different games and of course the grabbing toy machine!
These are photos I found on google... must of been taken when arcade shut as it was always mobbed!

We watched the entertainment for a while, had a few drinks then went back to caravan.
Another good day
