On Sunday, Grandson played with his road signs and cars, using the entire sitting room carpet for this purpose, as usual.
On Tuesday I went to my piano lesson. This is the view from the bus stop - Edinburgh Castle behind a graveyard and trees.
On Thursday the grandchildren came again. Isn't Granddaughter getting girl-like rather than baby-like?
She and Grandpa enjoyed "Ivor the Engine".
Grandson smiled nicely for the camera but by the time I actually took the picture, he was yearning to get back to his car layout.
It's spring. I do like being able to pick a little vaseful from the garden.
And later on Thursday, Daughter 2 came home for a long weekend, which always improves any week. I don't know why Mr L looks so red. He isn't really.
On Thursday evening the three of us watched "What We Did On Our Holiday" - a really enjoyable film, we thought. It was set mainly in the Highlands of Scotland, which are so lovely (and in another life I would live there among the hills and empty beaches) and stars David Tennant (who's always good), Rosamund Pike (ditto, also very beautiful) and Billy Connolly (of whom I'm not a huge fan but actually he was rather effective) - and some children, who were excellent. The film is funny but also surprising - it's slightly oh no! in the middle but fine in the end. I've just read a review which calls it "supremely modest", which I think is a good description. It made me smile a lot and it wouldn't really happen but then again... it just might.
And that was the week so far.
