Glasgow museum of transport

IMG_0049

 Hello my friends! I wanted to treat you to lots and lots of photos we took at the new museum of transport which we got to visit. It was a lovely thing to do, many interesting things I did not know about wheels and engines and lots of laughing moments too! I hope you enjoy the post!

Which is your favourite museum?

Rainy weekend at Darcy’s

_MG_0230
It is a typical Scottish summer :-( Raining unstoppably and creating a cellular confusion to my body (I expect it to be warm and wear summer clothes and it is cold and miserable and I wear boots!). Despite that, we decided to go to city centre last weekend for some shopping and hanging out. I also got the chance to test my new camera lens which I absolutely adore. It makes such a difference to the quality of my photos, don’t you think? Oh by the way…If you saw a flying Darcy’s balloon at the city centre, it was ours! a

Heads of Ayr Farm Park…A day in the sun!

_MG_2400

Wasn’t it glorious the last two weekends? We thought that summer would never come in Scotland but we did get a feel for it at least for some days. We decided to take a family trip to Heads of Ayr Farm Park and I have to say I was very impressed with how well this is done. If you have a family, you are going to have a great time as you can feed the goats and the ponies and also see some more exotic animals. The children’s fun park is amazing too with lots of sand and bouncy toys.

What did you do last weekend when the sun was shining?

The Glasgow Vet School Rodeo

_MG_2346

The Glasgow Vet School Rodeo takes place once a year at the grounds of the Garscube Estate. It was on last Saturday this year. I had never been before and I did not know what to expect. I found that the choice of Hunter wellies was excellent as the ground was wet in places. There were different things to do and to see…a dog show, tends with traditional food and treats, horse riding, bouncy castles and even a bar for the thirsty crowd! What took us by complete surprise though was the complete fearlessness and confidence of our 2 year old on her horse. It was like she had been doing it all her life! Enjoy the photos and I hope you get inspired to attend next year!

A walk in the Botanic Gardens…

Final photo

The weather has been so mild this weekend! Milder even than summer usually is in Glasgow. A walk in the Botanic Gardens, before our usual coffee and ice cream at Nardini’s (see previous post here), was absolutely essential. The trees and flowers are so confused by the mild weather that are beginning to bud. So weird! I just hope that there will not be a future frost killing it all before its time :-(

You can see what a blogger has to do though to get a picture taken! And right now she is watching Puss in Boots (which by the way is fab!) so I can write this post! Oh the joys of motherhood…:-)

How has your weekend been?

Mummy wants to have her photo taken!

Nardini’s Café on Byres Road…

Hello my friends! Nardini’s is one of my family’s favourite places for coffee, ice-cream and sweet treats in Glasgow. Situated on Byres Road, in West End, it carries the feeling of traditional presented in a modern way. My daughter absolutely loves it too and has croissants there every weekend with her daddy. The staff is so friendly that last weekend, although the shop was closed for refurbishment, they opened the doors so their little costumer could have her croissant as usual. She cannot wait to go back next weekend!

I also have to say that the ice-cream is absolutely devine with flavours that you would not be able to find anywhere else. They even do an Irn-Bru flavour as a tribute to their Scottish environment. I think my favourite is Honeycomb Explosion! You can check out the café here.

What is your favourite place for ice-cream and coffee in Glasgow?
