We've been away to Crieff Hydro with the extended family: our lot and two of their spouses (actor husband was too busy) and my brother, sister-in-law, niece, nephew and nephew's young lady. It was fun, though not precisely restful.
This is the view from outside our lodges.
Here we're about to engage in a hotly-contested game of Articulate.
We walked beside the Earn.
We celebrated my brother and sister-in-law's ruby wedding (congratulations, P and S).
Some of us bounced on a giant trampoline.
Some of us swung on a hammock in McRostie Park (which was called McCrostie Park when we were little). It was rather chilly, especially that day.
There were slides in the playpark at the Hydro.
There was plenty of room in the lodges for rail layouts.
We climbed the Knock, as we always do, puffing only slightly.
And back down again.
Some of us visited Drummond Castle. We had just missed the spring bulbs and were too early for the summer bedding, but just the bones of the gardens are worth seeing.
And then we came home again and everyone went away - but the Edinburgh ones were back today. After a brief but gruelling game of Squashing Granny On The Grass, they checked out the sandpit, which you wouldn't think would be as exciting as slides and trampolines and the McRostie Park, but they didn't seem to mind.
