Argyll_Ardgarten visitor centre

Ardgarten visitor centre, our first stop after leaving Glasgow.  It was raining heavily as we dashed from the car to buy an ordinance survey map and we weren’t sorry to have abandoned our original plan to camp.

MOSAIC - George map reading

An enforced stop 40 minutes later when two passing vehicles got stuck in the road found us reversing into a layby opposite the Largiemore Holiday Estate.  With time to kill while someone fetched a fork lift tractor we crossed the road to have a nosy at the view and consider whether it might be a future holiday destination.  We stopped and stared and pondered which of our friends might be prepared to make the 400 mile journey with us.  MOSAIC - Largiemore holiday chalets

10 minutes later we were ordering our lunch from the Oystercatcher at Otter Ferry  Argyll - Otter Ferry 2

We reached our destination in double the suggested time because we couldn’t help but drive slowly to admire the unfolding scenery.  Our jaw dropped when we were shown to our room at the Kames Hotel – a magnificent view to wake up to and the sound of the waves gently lapping the shore.  Bliss.  Argyll - Kames_room with a view

6 years ago today I took my last waddle to the allotment to pick green veg for a vitamin packed last supper.  I knew baby was on his way but had a feeling he wasn't going to be quick about it.  It's his birthday in 2 days time and I'm so excited for him, my darling Whopper (he was 10lb 2oz and my bump in this picture is 48"!)
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #ginormousbump  #10monthspregnant Amazing customer service from @tatterhood_ to help make sure her framed Mother poem arrived in time for my Mum's 70th birthday.  So many other wonderful poems available as postcards and her new book is also in stock on her website.  Go check her out, she's ace :0)
#motherhood #70thbirthdaygift Roadies.  When your Dad @musicalgeorgemoorey has a gig coming up and doesn't want to keep lugging his kit downstairs it becomes THE place in the room to sit!  #spacesgloucester #gloucesterlife So lush, they've made a den under the table and called for the iPad so they could watch their favourite Netflix episode inside.  #5minutespeaceandquiet Green eggs biscuits trial run for Es Dr Seuss birthday party next week.  Figured they'd be more appealing to 5 year olds than dying real eggs green!
