Got up at 9 and got ready for breakfast. Huge queue at omelette station so I had pancakes, bacon, sausage, scrambled and poached eggs which was very nice.      After this we went back to room to get on swimsuit and put on sun cream. We got a taxi to Aqualand 🏊🏻and had a great day there.  The kids loved the kids section and there was lots of great parts to it including a huge bucket that dropped gallons of water on you. There was palm trees that had "rain" pouring from it.  We went on great rides.                    My favourite was a Rapids ride which was really fast and fun. Less fun was a ride that shot you down a couple of shoots before landing in a plug hole like area. Of course the raft I was in with Owen got stuck and wouldn't move to the exit tunnel! I tried several times to move the thing along but eventually we went down the tube....needless to say I didn't attempt that one again!  The delightful ride!    John and Ross didn't get stuck and laughed at us but luckily they got stuck on their second attempt! Ha ha πŸ˜€ There was a great wave pool 🌊 it was fun but waves no where near as big as Typhoon Lagoon!! No bottoms lost this time fortunately!! 😨    Went for a beer when we got back to hotel and I did a bit of handwashing before a rest. John showered the boys then I had my shower.  Meal was lovely as usual. I had salmon on croute, grilled chicken, cod, breaded cauliflower, with lovely courgettes, chips and hassleback potatoes          No pudding this time Kids enjoyed their dancing and it was mummy's turn to get up to dance in front of the big crowd on stage to lots of different actions!πŸ’ƒπŸΌ John filmed it funnily enough!  I quite enjoyed it though 😊 There was a flamenco dance show on with a droning Spanish man singing! πŸ˜’

Grannies Heilan Hame August 2015 sat 15th

Saturday 15th August 

Had a nice sleep and got up at 8.20. Poor dad was up a lot of the night with his chest, he managed to get some sleep in the living room.

I made bacon and eggs for dad, john and myself 🍴🍳☕️

Mum had a yoghurt with chopped banana 🍌 Ross had banana custards and Owen had frubes.

Got the kids ready and then had my shower. We went to starlanders and met up with Joanne, Chris, Cameron and Katie.

The kids played 10 pin type bowling 🎳 and Ross and Cameron did well getting 10s. Owen did well too. Katie was at totstars earlier which she enjoyed. 

When we left starlanders it was pouring rain so we got some sandwiches for the boys to have for lunch in the caravan 

The afternoon brightened up and john took the boys to the beach with Jo, Chris, Cameron and Katie 

They had lots of fun playing and watching the big waves 



I went to Dornoch with Mum and Dad and had a lovely afternoon.

We went to the Dornoch Patisserie and Cafe 


Dad had sausage roll and baked beans

Mum had smoked salmon baguette 

I had raspberry and white chocolate bread and butter pudding with homemade custard 

It was a lovely lunch 

We then had a look around the shops and I got a couple of nice scruncies and a cute little scotty dog soap for paddy 

We had a look around the Jail shop before going back to the caravan.


We had a nice rest then had a Chinese for tea 

I had king prawn with cashew nuts and fried rice, Mum had roast duck and mushrooms with boiled rice, Dad had chicken and black bean sauce and rice, John had special chow mein and the boys had special fried rice 🍚🍱

We had a good time at the bar at night and the kids enjoyed the games etc at starlanders

There was a good girl singer on later, we enjoyed watching her.

Another good day

Grannies Heilan Hame August 2015

   Friday 14th August  Got up at 7.45 and got kids ready. They took their stugeron tablet then had their breakfast. Got myself and cats all ready and then we went down to lossie to give paddy and Robbie our house key as they were going to feed the cats 🐱 whilst we were away. We then went to give mum and dad their usb stick for the journey to Grannies Heilan Hame. We got to the Eastgate shopping centre and went shopping πŸ’· I went for a look with Ross first and John took Owen. John bought some tops then we met up for lunch at Pizza Hut. Myself and Ross both had ham and pineapple pizzas πŸ•πŸŸ, Owen had a cheese and tomato pizza and john had pulled pork and pepperoni pizzas. We also had chips then some nice mini doughnuts with chocolate dipping sauce  Afterwards myself and Owen went shopping and john gave me money to buy some new clothes. I got 5 lovely summer tops which were in the half price sale at debenhams. Really pretty tops, ideal for Gran Canaria ☀️πŸ’ƒπŸΌ We all met up again and we set off for Grannies We of course were immediately in a traffic jam long before the start of the kessock bridge, cars everywhere!πŸš—πŸš™πŸš•πŸš˜πŸššπŸšπŸš¦ Eventually we were on our way. I phoned mum and dad and they were about a mile further along the road than us. It was funny phoning them as when call connected all you could here was dad saying "Speak!" I couldn't stop laughing πŸ˜‚    We had a nice journey and got there just before 4. We checked in to our caravan which had a nice view of the beach. Mum, dad and I unpacked and john took kids to park and the arcade.                              Soon it was teatime and we had a lovely Indian takeaway  I had king prawn Kashmiri, mum had chicken korma, dad and boys had fish and chips and john had garlic chilli chicken. We then went to the bar where Joanne, chris and kids had saved us a table. The kids all had great fun at the disco and then star landers games. Bingo next with big prizes but we didn't win. Later on there was a band on with a girl singer. We stayed till 10.30 then went back to the caravan. Lovely first day
