It's Annie's Smiley Day again - an opportunity to share some of what has brought us pleasure during the week. For us it's been a another busy week but I haven't been snapping away much with my camera. When I'm busy with family I often forget to take pictures.
Our niece, Louise, all the way from Aberdeen, visited us on Wednesday morning. She had an appointment at Ayr hospital so we took her there and back. It's a university hospital so very busy. We spent the time waiting for Louise in the little tea room beautifully ran by volunteers, as is the little well-stocked little shop nearby. We also took the opportunity to visit my sister Margaret who was in bed and feeling not so good. MS is a miserable condition but she always manages to look on the bright side and finds a lot to smile about too.
At the weekend, we did pop down to Culzean to our favourite second-hand book shop - we had quite a pile of read books to offload but we really don't need much of an excuse to visit the estate. To our surprise we found that there was a 'Forces in the Field' event going on and this time I did remember to get my phone out. Here's a few pics from the day.
Living history re-enactments was part of the entertainment.
And this aircraft cockpit display - hubby checked the dimensions and reported back that the entrance was so small he'd never be able to get inside!
Not sure this was the sort of display I'd have around with so many children milling around. I was assured they were not loaded by what about those bayonets - they look pretty lethal to me!!!
This lady was weaving a bag from rags on a very primitive looking loom.
And finally, not a funny today but something really special.
So that's it for today. Next Friday we will be on the way Wales for the WOYWW crop so I may not be able to post on this blog ... I've never tried blogging from my phone so really don't know if it's possible. What I will be able to do is post photos on Facebook and, as I have decided not to join in with 'Scroll Free September' this year, a noble idea I'm sure, my Friday Smiles will be there instead.
Take care and have a wonderful weekend.
