Flat Stanley's Advenutures

Jeanie aka The Spotted Chick emailed me a while ago asking if I'd help out with her SIL's neighbours daughters school project (still with me lol). They had read a book called Flat Stanley whose main character Stanley gets flattened by a bulletin board which allows Stanley to have many adventures. On one adventure Stanley gets mailed to visit some friends who live far away. Each of the class got to colour their own Flat Stanley and send them on their own adventures. My Flat Stanley arrived via Switzerland the other week and after resting today was the day we went for our Scottish adventure with Rocky and Ruby in tow....

In the car ready to go but....

safety first...we buckled up!!

First stop

on the bridge

Second stop

I thought it would be a good idea to take a picture of Stanley at the door ready to go in. Being a Girl Guide once upon a time I came prepared with blu-tack. Unfortunately when I took Flat Stanley off the wall some of the paint came with it!!!!! Oops ... I made a quick exit!

On the beach in Troon

Playing in the sand

That was our adventure this was great fun and I'm really pleased Jeanie asked me to play along :-D

I went to see Jean last night. She was so much better than I was expecting and she definitely wasn't loopy lol! In fact quite the opposite...bossing me about. She wasn't happy with the clock in her room and insisted I take it down off the wall and change the time as she thought it was 2 minutes fast! Today she was getting out of bed for a little stroll and hopefully will be back to a normal ward in a few days.

That's it from me today. I hope you've had a great weekend and you have a great week ahead.

Catch ya later x
