Busy Weekend!


Last weekend DH and I went up to Glasgow for a little getaway whilst Eldest looked after his brother and Treacle!  Fortunately the weather was okay and didn’t stop us getting there.  The above is the hotel we stayed in which is ten miles out of Glasgow.

This was our room

The reason for going was DH had treated me for Christmas to two tickets to the Jack Vettriano Retrospective Exhibition being held at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.  We have one of this prints in our bedroom and it is my favourite of all his works

The Entrance Hall


DH and I both loved the lamps


Inside was this magnificent pipe organ which sounded wonderful

When we came out the weather had cleared up, the sky was blue and the sun was shining but it was still cold.

The exhibition was great but we were not allowed to take pictures but you can see some of it on-line.  When we came up from the exhibition hall, Jack Vettriano himself was there signing copies of the catalogue so DH & I got in line.



He was really busy as you can imagine.  Afterwards we went for lunch at Loch Lomond but by then it was beginning to rain.

This is the view but not when we were there!

We had dinner in the evening at the hotel and then traveled back during Sunday.  On the way home we had a call from Eldest “How do I get into the garage when my key has broken in the lock?” !!!!!!!!!!!!!!  my answer was can you use some pliers to get the broken key out – no and they needed to leave to get to swimming!!!!  Just leave it and we will sort it when we get back!!!!!!!!!  Sure enough DH got home and within ten minutes had got the the broken bit out.  Good job as there were some quite expensive parts in there which DH was delivering for our business the next day!!!!!!!

We had a lovely weekend and very grateful to Eldest for looking after his brother and Treacle.  Treacle was fine and I think had had quite a few treats to keep her from missing us!!! Yeah right missing us, she spent the weekend with The Boys and Girlfriend, she was in seventh heaven!!!!!

Youngest is off this week from school for half term and it was so nice not to rushing around, although he has had a few activities so we have had to be up and about.  Today he had a check up at the hospital for his toes and they have healed really well and he is now allowed back playing sport at school, Yeah!!!!!  I took him for a hot chocolate which was recommended by a friend as the best hot chocolate ever, but he was not too impressed as they used real chocolate and it was very bitter, oh well!!! 

Tomorrow is Wednesday Wag but Thursday I will show you what I got from the quilt shop, which is not far from where we went for our hot chocolate (there is a method to my madness!!!!)

Have a thrilling Tuesday

    Glad you had fun at the Kelvingrove and enjoyed your visit. His work is fabulous and how great you managed to meet the man himself. Did you manage to see the Dali of Christ on the Cross (which is definitely not in the best position in my opinion since it was moved) and my personal favourite Windows on the West as well?
