Snapshots: Spontaneous Day of Fun

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Do you ever have those days when nothing seems to go quite to plan, but in an absolutely wonderful way? That's exactly what happened to us today. Our plan of staying at home, doing some tidying and generally getting our stuff together. Instead we woke up, saw the snow, said stuff it, and then spent the day having fun instead.

We started the day walking the dogs across to meet a friend who was holding a bake sale. The dogs had loads of fun running around on the way there, and then even more getting all sorts of attention outside the university library. After making a donation and eating some cake we headed back home for several cups of coffee to warm us up.

Having decided that today just wasn't really going to plan we called up a few friend's who live close by and proposed another trip to the museum. By the time we got there it was only a couple of hours till closing time, but we still had fun exploring the basement level and seeing all the old Scottish stuff, while eating leftover bake sale cakes. 

So it wasn't a particularly different day from normal, but it did involve all my favourite things, sometimes it is nice to simply spend the day doing things that make you happy. And in that vein, I'm off to curl up on the sofa with the dogs and watch a film. Happy Wednesday folks.

  6. Hey Alice, I just stumbled across your blog and wanted to say hi! I studied abroad in Edinburgh for a semester, so I am excited to see and hear about your adventures there. Also, I am huge dog lover so I am really enjoying all the pictures of the pups. 

    The National Museum of Scottish history is amazing. The first time I went I arrived near closing time too, and was so overwhelmed by all there is to see. I definitely don't think I saw any of the things you posted pictures of, and I wish I did. I love the carved wooden pig. What exhibit were you wandering through when you took these pictures?

    Looking forward to reading more of your posts!
