On Friday we were all set with a 05:00 alarm to kick start the day. We are sad to report, we did not even get to 05:00 alarm because of Fan Boy. Fan Boy must have known it was moving day as we checked out and headed back to Glasgow.
We do not know how the kids were still going. Especially during all the magic and excitement from Hogwarts on Thursday, we were all down on sleep. Lachlan was enjoying the train journey, never one to turn down an adventure, but he was missing his train buddy, Jamila. About halfway we all clonked out, well, Super Mum was soldering on, “situation normal”.
The kids woke up in good spirits, Eloise was enjoying Super Mum’s headphones and Lachlan continued his train dance.
After the Barbies had made it back to our small strange cultural city we had just enough time for Lachlan to chase pigeons before heading home.
We were all relieved to be home, when Eloise went up to her bedroom to brief all her babies on the magic she had learnt she could not believe all the sweet merch on her bed. Without Grandpa DAVE being able to deploy Eloise in Italy, Nali had brought half the country back with her. Eloise and Lachlan had been massively spoilt but where were they? They were nowhere to be seen. Eloise was again concerned that they were lost. After sitting down for ten minutes, Eloise was back out the door to get a fresh trim with Emma.
This was not any ol’ haircut, there was a secret ploy that Super Mum and Jo had plotted weeks ago. Emma also just happened to be there and when she saw Eloise having fun she sprung up into the second chair for her first haircut. The evil mummas were sniggering in the corner (unconfirmed).
Just after Eloise and Super Mum returned home, Nali and Grandpa DAVE also appeared. It was great to be together again after a difficult week. Eloise and Lachlan were thrilled to have them back and Eloise was straight up for Nali cuddles, Lachlan decided to poke Grandpa DAVE instead.
This morning, Eloise flipped open the community magazine, and there she was.
After Lachlan had a quick peak, proud of his Big Sister, he dashed back to Nali couch.
We had the day together in Glasgow and decided to head across to the southside to show Nali and Grandpa DAVE the impressive Burrell Collection, this meant Liam was kicked out of the car again and faced the Clyde Tunnel.
While Nali and Grandpa DAVE checked out the collection, Eloise and Lachlan headed straight to the digital games.
All of a sudden it got serious with a winner takes all match of snap. Eloise was not holding back. Lachlan was a bit trigger happy with the ‘snap’ button which was testing Eloise.
Eloise and Lachlan were very good at helping each other out and taking turns with the interactive displays. Every time we walk through there is something different that jumps out at us.
Grandpa DAVE introduced swords into the mix but quickly realised that was not a good idea, this gave Nali time to slip away and purchase some more sweet merch.
After lunch, Lachlan still had his mind on the swords and managed to find his very own.
The premium coos had spoilt us today, they were all right down near the fence. Nali and Grandpa DAVE were excited they got to see more of them.
The coos were not short of company, Lachlan kept shouting “baby coo”, to the amusement of the crowd it sounded like barbeque. We had to let him out to pat the wee coo.
We continued down through Pollok Park until we go to Pollok House, Nali and Grandpa DAVE headed into the National Trust site with Super Mum and the kids which gave Liam the head start to cycle home.
The naughty coos had stolen all the paintings throughout Pollok House. Never fear, Eloise and Lachlan were on the case.
Liam had worked out a more scenic route home which avoided the tunnel of doom. The only downside was there were plenty of wildflowers.
After dinner, Eloise sprung into action, starting to pack the essentials before we launch again tomorrow. At least we had one day at home.
