|Putting together the shoebox
Saturday 7 December 2019
Of course, Christmas preparations are now underway. A couple of weeks back the girls put together a shoebox for the Blythswood Appeal, and last weekend we got our tree and various decorations up. I took the Friday off to get the tree - the forest we go to advertised that as being the first day of sales and the girls were off school anyway. As it turns out, their website had an error, so when we arrived we were told sales weren't until the next day: fortunately the trees had just arrived so they kindly took a few off the truck for us to choose from, and we got the very first one sold there this year! We also made it a day out (it's in Aberfoyle and a good 40 minute drive away) and took a picnic. The rangers had set out a trail with quiz sheets and clues that the girls were able to follow and they saw a very nice waterfall. A fun day!
