Greetings from Aberdeen. We are going ice skating in half an hour. But don't let that fact make you think we haven't been doing the beach thing too. Emily's blue lips on exiting the North Sea after an extended body boarding session and my sunburnt nose can attest to the beach experience.
I would like to be able to say it has been nothing but fun and frolics since we departed southern regions, but unfortunately I can't. We arrived at my mum's Sunday and all was well. But that night my mum fell ill and by Monday she was hospitalised. She is home again now, but I brought the girls to Aberdeen earlier than planned to give peace, quiet and healing time.
Not sure where we will be when now. My mum is determined to be fighting fit for us to return. We shall see.
I can't access my emails despite my best attempts so apologies for lack of communication and replies to comments.
