This morning we were heading to the Edinburgh Festival with the girls to see one of our favourite singers, Nick Cope. He writes fabulous songs for children and he is funny too. If you have never heard of him you should do a quick google/youtube search. Our ultimate favourite song is ‘The baby’s done a poo’.
Here we are waiting at the front of the queue to get in.
In our seats right at the front.
The man himself.
Beanster was a bit afraid that she was going to have to get up on stage.
Moo was a bit sleepy.
Audience participation (Beanster didn’t get up on the stage)
He was absolutely brilliant and we bought one of his CDs at the end to add to our collection.
We then went and got a bit of lunch and had it sitting on giant pillows in a park.
Beanster wanted her photo taken on top of a wall.
And then we had a play before heading back to the car.
It was granny’s birthday so we headed to her house to give her presents…
Moo chose the cake and candles and was very happy when she got her slice.
Later on the girls played in the garden.
Back at home they opened up their own cafe and ice cream parlour and Beanster wrote the menu.
Beanster and Mama headed out to the Library after tea to log Beanster’s last book for her Summer Reading Challenge. She will miss the award ceremony as we are away on holiday but when she gets back she has to go to the Library to receive her medal and certificate. Whilst Beanster was away Moo played in our Fairy Garden and made tea for an imaginary Auntie Alice.
For an hour or so before bed Moo and I headed to the allotment to attend to some of our veg and Beanster and Mama went to check out a possible venue for her birthday party in a few weeks. Moo was very excited to see that we have got some corn cobs growing. This is the furthest we have ever got when growing corn on the cob. Scotland is usually too wet for us to have any success, maybe this is our year to taste one!
We also have spaghetti squash, pumpkins, butternut squash, courgettes (on the verge of becoming marrows), cabbage, onions, beetroot, cauliflowers, kale and potatoes growing nicely too. There are other things in too but they haven’t come on much yet.
Oh, Beanster gave the local venue a thumbs up so now party planning begins…….
