Sport's Day June 2014
posted on 09/07/2014

The boys had a great time at their Sport's Day.  As it is the commonwealth games in Glasgow this summer, this was the theme. The school gave all the kids different coloured commonwealth tshirts with the school logo on it.  Owen got a bronze and a silver medal! Silver for the badmington shuttle race and bronze for the obstacle course.


Ross was a parade leader with a banner

Monster truck show
posted on 09/07/2014

We went to the Monster truck show one night which was good.  It featured bmx riders and motorcyclists jumping over lorries etc and doing lots of stunts.  At the end the monster trucks drove over a line of wrecked cars. It was good.

Saturday 10th May


Had a nice long sleep and we all woke up at about 9am. We could here the boys playing with all their Mario toys giggling and laughing for a good 15 minutes. We got up at 9.30 and John went to the shop to get some milk for my coffee. Owen had his usual petit filous and Ross had a strawberry and a banana custard for breakfast. John had a very healthy breakfast of 2 tunnocks teacakes! and i had a cheese and ham spread sandwich.


After this the boys got ready and so did I.  We went to the starlanders Aviation play time at 11am in the bar which the boys enjoyed. They watched a video phone call from Sid the seagull and then made some paper planes and did a few activities including target practice etc.

John and the boys then went to the park and did my voice recording for this trip report.

In the afternoon i read my magazines etc and then we had a nice chinese for tea. The boys and I shared a chicken chow mein and chicken and mushrooms which was nice and John had a special chow mein.  photo 807dd8867c271f86b31a9d7b8fe64014_zps8c32cfea.jpg We then went to the bar for the children's entertainent.

My birthday weekend Friday continued
posted on 16/06/2014

We enjoyed the cake which had pink and cream sponge layers. I got  a £25 next voucher from auntie Julie which was lovely, a Baylis and Harding gift set from John's mum and dad alongwith a box of milktray. I then had my shower and after that Mum and Dad came round with a lovely daughter card with hand crafted decorations. Inside the card was a very generous money gift of £70 and they also gave me a lovely pink handbag. From Joanne there was a big box with 40 on it and when I opened it a lovely helium balloon popped out. There was lots of confetti stars and little 40s in it. In the box was also a invitation to a spa hotel overnight stay for Joanne and I. She made up a lovely poem inviting me and I was delighted with this great present.  In another box was a lovely Mickey Mouse ornament from Cameron and Katie. I also got a lovely cat wine glass with a cat glass coaster from Philip and Betty which was very nice. From my friend Alison I got a lovely box set with a 40th wine glass and bottle of asti with red glitter all over the glass and bottle.

After the present opening I had a lot to do as I didn't know we wer going away and that Mum and Dad were coming up to look after the cats. I cleaned around the house and made up the bed for mum and dad. Then I packed our case for the weekend.

We then went to the northern chip shop for lunch and I had double egg and chips and John had a cheese burger and chips.

We left at 3.15 after picking boys up from school and getting them into other clothes. We had a good journey which took 2 hours. Would have been longer but John managed to get past roadworks rather quickly!

We checked into S67 which is a privately owned caravan which was lovely and it even had a playstation for the boys which they enjoyed, especially the Tom and Jerry game which I even had a shot of!

I then did the unpacking whilst John took Ross and Owen to the arcade.  Soon it was time for tea. John took Ross with him to the chip shop. I had a scampi supper, the boys had a smoked sausage supper and John had a cheeseburger supper...again!! See above

I then did my hair and we went over to the bar and it was the starlanders disco time for the kids. They did musical bumps and other different games. Later there was a game where you had to pick either seagulls (Sid the seagull) or lizards ( Lizzy the lizard).

There was music and when it stopped the kids had to pick a side of the room and there was a girl chosen to pick the side of the room to be a seagull or a lizard.The boys kept choosing the correct side until they were the only kids left and Owen then chose the correct side and won the game! He had to go up onto the stage and tell the man his name and he got to pick a prize from a box, after a rather long rummage! he picked a packet of 20 felt tip pens.

Later the boys played in the arcade and then it was bingo time but no wins on our table unfortunately. Next a girl singer came on and she was good. We enjoyed some lagers and went up to the caravan about 11pm.

I had a lovely birthday

My surprise 40th birthday weekend away

Surprise 40th Birthday weekend Day 1 morning

Surprise 40th Birthday weekend

This image has been resized. Click this bar to view the full image.


Me (Kerry) 40 yrs old ahhhh! 

John (my husband) who's even older 43 yrs ha ha! 

Ross our eldest son 7 yrs

Owen our youngest son 6 yrs

Day 1 Friday 9th May

I woke up at 6.45am with alarm as i like to snooze for a while before getting the boys and up and ready for school. Texts from Mum, Dad and Joanne came in so i didn't get back to sleep.

I went on facebook and heard a lovely singing voice mail from Joanne, Chris and Cameron and they were all singing Happy Birthday to me...it was so cut Joanne had arranged for a birthday annoucement be read out on our local radio station Moray Firth Radio and it was great to hear this at 7.45.

Mum and Dad had also put a lovely birthday announcement in our local paper, The Northern Scot. I was only 17 in the photo and it looked lovely... can't believe i'm now 23 years older, when did that happen!

John then got the boys up and gave them their breakfast. After this they all came into the living room with my lovely card, there was supposed to be a mummy card too but John couldn't find it! The boys wrote their birthday messages in it which was lovely.

Ross then said to me that he was going to his Grass Roots (after school sports ) as we were going to Grannies Heilan Hame for the weekend!

Grannies Heilan Hame is a great holiday Park in Embo Northern Scotland, near Dornach ( were Madonna got married to Guy Ritchie)

We had our very first family holiday with the boys there in the summer of 2011 when Ross was 4 and Owen was 3 yrs.

It was a wonderful surprise and he kept it a secret since March! He only told my mum and dad about it on the wednesday as he had asked them to "babysit" our 2 cats... the only other females in our very male house, Rory and Dixie aged 2 although Rory turned 3 on the 16th May and i gave her a "you are 3" birthday card which John was horrified at! but i wanted to as they are my little girls! Dixie will be 3 on 21st June and she will be getting a card too if you're reading this John!

By the way in case you're wondering why Rory has a "male" name its because we were told she was a he when we first got her from a farm. A week later the vet informed us of the fact i had another girl in the house! We kept her name as it suited her and i googled it (i'm frequently online! ) and found out there is an american girl tv character called Rory so she's not the only girl with that name! lol
Anyway back to the subject matter as i appear to be rambling somewhat!

John and the boys also gave me a lovely big bottle of Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue perfume an
Just before the boys went to school, they came through with a lovely birthday cake (see above) and a lovely big 40th mug and coaster set which is great as i'm very partial to my coffee!
and we had a slice with coffee after the boys went to school.

Next part coming soon
