1) It was damp out and muddy underfoot… staying in with cups of hot tea was extremely appealing. But once we actually got out there, we discovered that it wasn’t as bad as it initially appeared, and we were glad we went*.
2) After they had finished supper, the kids took themselves upstairs and got completely ready for bed – without even being asked to do so!
3) The night sky was cloud-covered, but the reflection of the lights from Grangemouth turned the clouds orange, and on the other side the reflection of the floodlights from the football pitch at the local high school turned the clouds blue. The combination of the two made for a pretty weird looking sky!
* Muddy jeans went straight in the wash though!
