Catching up with friends and family made our recent long 'road-trip' so worth it. We managed to spend time with my two sisters, Mary & Sally and some of their family,Pauline's sister Eileen (who put up with us twice!) her brother Ronald and wife Evelyn as well as our own three sons. It was good to see Michael stepping up to the fatherly role, we always knew he and Rose would make great parents though we also know it's not an easy job and life-changing in so many ways!
We went over to Glasgow and met Paul after work and went out for a bite to eat but only after Pauline had a little retail therapy.
On our last day we we headed back over to Edinburgh to say our goodbyes to Ada,Rose and Michael and were also fortunate enough to catch Mark's performance with 'The Spontaneous Players',a comedy troupe he has joined. It was great to see him doing what he loves...and very good he is too! They are the improvisational comedy troupe behind 'Spontaneous Sherlock' and 'Spontaneous Potter', you can catch them every Thursday night at the Monkey Barrel Comedy Club and look out for them at this years Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
