October 8th and 9th 2017 we went away with Mark’s parents. My baby girl Roos gave her granddad a day out for his birthday in June. Roos suggested a zoo visit (well we did in her name). Since earlier this year we have 2 Panda’s in Ouwehands dierenpark, so Roos wanted to go there and asked to bring her mummy, daddy and nan as well. So granddad did. We stayed in Rhenen (where the zoo is) for 1 night in a hotel. On monday the 9th we went to the zoo. I think that me, my hubby, and my parents-in-law liked the Panda’s more then Roos did, but she had a great time anyway.
Wednesday 24th was my birthday. I celebrated it for my friends and family with a BBQ in my mum’s garden last Saturday. Her house was packed, loved it, but didn’t expect it. Usually everybody is always on a holiday, this time nobody was. Everybody who was invited came over. This weekend I’ll celebrate it with The D.O.T.
I woke up at 7ish, cos Mark had to go to work, I had some stuff to do at my house, cos I have hardly been in for the last month. When that was done I watched “Step up”. I love that movie. I love Channing Tatum it was finished just before 9:30am, a couple minutes later Ozzy arrived. Just before 10am we left to get the bus to the airport. We checked in online already, we only had hand luggage (That was a tip we got from Mike in Solana Beach), so we got through very quickly.
My friend Ozzy & I Woke up early to go to the airport. Our plane was supposed to leave at 9:05, but it all took the airport crew a bit longer so it was a little later, Thankfully the flight didn’t take too long.
We arrived very early at Airways hotel Victoria, it was 10.30 and we couldn’t check in until 1.30, Time for breakfast. we were staying in the area of Buckingham palace, so also the prices in the shops/restaurants were for people who could afford that. We had breakfast in a pub for 25 pounds. Not going to do this tomorrow.
When we finished we went to Victoria Station. Laurence would arrive soon. We went to do some window shopping. i didn’t want to spend any money, as I didn’t have much. and breakfast was way more then i could afford. I needed all the money I had for The Streets merchandise.
I woke up at Callum‘s place at 6 am, though my head was going to explode. 2 hours later when Laurence and Ozzy were awake, I finally felt better, probably cos I had a shower and I knew I was going to get some food.
We said goodbye to Callum‘s girlfriend Chelsea, poor girl had to work, and we got dressed and ready to leave to the Haymarket train station, Callum was still asleep. We left him a note. We wanted to take the bus, but it was raining, so we took a cab instead. We arrived pretty early, so we had scrambled eggs on toast first and then we got a train earlier. We arrived in Glasgow at about 12.30. Our room in the Thistle hotel was ready so we could check in. Only Ozzy‘s bed was still missing. Got placed later that day. We went to see what the swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, steam room & sunbed looked like. We spend there a few hours.
