Happy Thanksgiving, Americans.

I went to Daughter 1's house today and took Grandson for a walk so that she could wield the vacuum cleaner in peace. I'd forgotten the way that babies look around when outside: his little head swivels and his eyes go from side to side, building up a picture (presumably) of the world. Then after a while, he went to sleep. It was a windy day so he was well wrapped up. I continued walking, admiring his perfect little face as he concentrated on sleeping.

I wandered along the road and, after a while, into an industrial estate that I hadn't known was there. It has a rather fine view over a golf course and on to Arthur's Seat, the biggest of the hills within Edinburgh. I would really like to have a view like this from my house (cf post about the tile a couple of days ago). You'd think that people would pay quite a lot for such an outlook.

This is what has the benefit of that view. Good bit of town planning there...


  1. Hmmm... I'll stick with baby's sleeping face, thanks! LOL

  2. Awwww, he's so cute. What a lucky guy to have grammie take him take a walk while mummy cleans house -- it sounds like a perfect day.
