Days that don't go to plan...

Today was going to be a day for a 'real' photo shoot of my kids. All showered, hair washed, jeans on (that is a big deal here), in the car...off we go...well the brats annoyed me and wouldn't behave. I think I could have taken a long walk off a short pier. The conditions were perfect..the sky was blue...it wasn't freezing..talk about mad!!!! So I took some photos and we toured around. We went back to Whinnyfold and I asked the lady at this cute house if I could take a photo of her house. Not only did I get to take photos but she invited me in. Her husband offered us a cup of tea. Then she told that she was born in Ellon...at the place where Helping Hands is...I told her that it was a pharmacy...she said yep..her dad was the chemist there. Penny dropped..my friend Annette is married to her nephew!!! We had a lovely time with her and Mark. The beach scene is from Cruden Bay. It was a great day...should have found some stranger's kids to photograph.

Can't you leave those ruffians at home if they are going to act up? Geesh, I problaby would have busted a gasket too! LOL. Loving your pictures, and the story about the lady and her house is quite funny. What a coincidence!

My gasket busted at Cruden Bay....I was swearing like a sailor...and mumbling as I walked along!!!! When we got to Whinnyfold I walked off to take photos...and then came across Kay and Mark...so we sat in the house and had a cuppa...and the boys walked around the little hamlet...and when they got bored...they sat in the car!!! I calmed down alot by then. xxxRobby

All I can say when I see your pictures is "WOW"

Robby said...

Thanks Nan. I did play with these on photoshop but these ones are straight from the camera. I got Pete to turn back around when I saw the mail boxes. I loved the look of it..and the house in the background. xxxRobby

Darn kids! They can be a pain in the butt somedays but we gotta love them. :) Your pictures are beautiful Robby and you have me wishing I could visit Scotland someday.

Take Care and can't wait for the next batch of photos!
