Haggerston day 2 : haggerston hideout

Tuesday 15th July

I woke up at 5.30 for some strange reason but luckily got back to sleep until 9. I was woken to the sound of the boys playing with their plants versus zombies toys and they were having great fun.

Plants versus zombies is a popular computer game and the boys have various soft toys of the characters.

It's amazing how their imagination works. We then had breakfast and I had my shower. 

We then had a walk around the park and it was huge, we took a few wrong turns as it was difficult to navigate around!

We went to the park and the kids enjoyed playing for a while

This was popular

Our caravan was in the Golf Village part of Haggerston and we were in the Belfry section, number 20. We went to a cafe nearby which was next to the mini golf course. It was called The Fairways. I had a cheese and red onion panini with salad, John had a panini too and also a bacon roll... greedy! The boys had a kids box with juice, ham sandwich, crisps and chocolate. It was very nice. 

We then went to the entertainment complex and in the bar was a wrestling contest. Three rounds with the "goodie and baddie" wrestlers. They were good, the boys seemed to like it too.

We enjoyed a beer watching this and the boys had a slush.
After this we went back to the caravan and had a nice rest. 
For tea we had a Papa Johns pizza which was lovely, John and I shared a large BBQ chicken pizza with potato wedges 

Ross had chicken poppers and Owen a cheese and tomato pizza which they enjoyed.

Then we went to the bar in the evening and the boys had great fun at the arcade playing different games and of course the grabbing toy machine!
These are photos I found on google... must of been taken when arcade shut as it was always mobbed!

We watched the entertainment for a while, had a few drinks then went back to caravan.
Another good day

Once all ready, I said goodbye to cats and we set off at 9.30.

We stopped off for a toilet break at Bruer and then went to Perth for lunch. We had a nice meal at the Harvester. I had spit roasted chicken with veg and mashed potatoes, Ross and Owen had macaroni and John had a burger with cheese and bacon.

We then carried on with our journey and arrived at Haggerston Castle at 4pm. The boys were kept occupied with the sat nav the whole journey and unusually didn't keep on about how long to go!

It was really busy when we arrived but eventually we checked into our caravan. The caravan was lovely and big.

Excuse the headless photo of John but I only wanted to have a photo of the caravan! 

I unpacked and John took the boys out for a walk. I of course had forgotten my foundation and I then made John take us to Berwick so I could get some. Typical, I even bought an extra bottle before we left..! We needed some supplies from tesco anyway so that was handy.

We had a chip shop tea, then we went to the bar. The star landers did the kids entertainment first then they sang. Later they did a show called Girls on Film which was good with songs from dirty dancing, pretty woman etc. The boys loved the arcade area which was huge and they especially enjoyed the Plants versus Zombies toy grabber machine. They enjoyed slushes and John and I enjoyed pints of Carling! 

We got back to the caravan at about 11.30.
A lovely first day

Had a lovely walk in Roseisle forest with mum,dad and boys.

We had a picnic first which was very nice and then went on our walk which took an hour or so.  It was a lovely sunny day.

We went to the Monster truck show one night which was good.  It featured bmx riders and motorcyclists jumping over lorries etc and doing lots of stunts.  At the end the monster trucks drove over a line of wrecked cars. It was good.

Sport's Day

The boys had a great time at their Sport's Day.  As it is the commonwealth games in Glasgow this summer, this was the theme. The school gave all the kids different coloured commonwealth tshirts with the school logo on it.  Owen got a bronze and a silver medal! Silver for the badmington shuttle race and bronze for the obstacle course.


Ross was a parade leader with a banner
