Mum's visit- in pictures

Mum has taken all of her photos back to Scotland with her (I should have taken copies!)-I think in every one of hers we are sipping wine or eating food! Sure signs of a great holiday!

Being Karen Blixon and a trip to a tea platation

Lunch at a trout farm and a visit from a hyrax

Facts of the day- 1. The closest lisving relative to the hyrax is the elephant.
2. The hyrax is born with its eyes open (!) and can climb straight away.
3. The hyrax is the only wild animal that's shrieks (similar to a car alarm...but less annoying!) are louder than my mum snoring! (Fact!) Love you Mum!

A mini safari

A great wee holiday - the next one can't come soon enough!

PS - I was reading the Culture section of an old weekend paper this morning and saw an advertisement for a bracelet that gives off electric shocks when the person wearing it snores. Not joking. Has anyone tried this??


  1. I live in Maryland (USA) so these pictures are honestly a vacation for me (even though I wasn't there for the good food and wine sipping!)

    Anyway, I happened upon your blog and couldn't help but make a comment. Great pictures.

    And the snoring bracelet? I absolutely need one. In fact my 6 year old daughter told me on the way to school this morning that I snore and it is very LOUD. :)

  2. So glad you and your Mum had a wonderful time. x

  3. Caroline, that is so funny. I just wonder how bad the shocks are.

    Thank you, Wendy- we did.

  4. How blissful. You don't fancy a week in Thailand in April do you??

  5. That sounds amazing, Mud! But I am going to save my pennies (or bobs!) for a trip to Uganda...Thailand is a wee bit out of a teacher's budget... :)

  6. Looks like fun!

    xoxo, Nali
