Happy Girls

A has had a very social weekend! On Friday afternoon we went and picked up two of her friends from her old school. It was very weird driving up to the school again, but A got a lovely welcome. We actually got there a bit early and managed to disrupt the class as one of the boys spotted us out of the window, next thing you know there are a load of kids hanging out of the window calling to A. I think she quite enjoyed all the attention, and she didn't show any signs of wanting to be back there as a class member.
A few of us went off to Findhorn bay as the weather was magnificent, and we spent a couple of hours there. Then I took the three girls over to Nairn beach (see picture), then home to ours for a sleepover. They had a great time, and I got some peace and quiet, apart from them getting up and disturbing me with their giggling at about 6.30 on Saturday morning.
Saturday afternoon A went off to another friend's house to play, and had a very happy time there too.
I had a very exciting night out on Saturday - went to see Orkestra_del_Sol in Drumnadrochit - a fantastic night!! It was all very last minute, my friend and I had seen them play before a few months ago, and said next time they play near us we will take the kids as they would love it. However, we never managed to get organised and book tickets for various reasons, so I didn't think we'd get there, but with about an hour or so to spare my friend rang and said she'd managed to get two free tickets from a friend who knows the drummer - so off we went! Unfortunately my friend's kids were with their Dad, and A was too knackered to come after her busy weekend, but the two of us had a great time - they really are a fantastic band, such fun. Next time we will definately take the kids.
Today we went off to spend our prize book tokens (the picture still hasn't been in the local paper - hopefully next week). A bought a Fairy_Fashion book, and an Usbourne Pirate_things_to_make_and_do activity book, and I got Yevgeny Zamyatin's We . Should keep us busy for a wee while.

You must be having so much fun and what talent you have expressing happiness! Amazing!

btw: Miserable kids do better than happy counterparts in cognitive tests :)
