The day was very fun, but now I am tired and tomorrow we spend much of the day driving to Wales for a new ...

      ... they are speaking another language! Haha) but Mel can generally understand - must be thanks to her Gran & Grandad ;-) We are heading home to the warmth now (and more Mentalist!) but are looking forward to doing more sightseeing tomorrow - including an Edinburgh Castle Tour!
