Grandma Melrose came out for Abi's birthday in April. We did a few day trips out and about - there's a huge coal mining influence in this area so we visited an old coal mine and had a walk along the canals that were all built due to this industry.
Abi had a great birthday too. She chose a pottery wheel party. So her and 5 friends all made pots. It was very difficult, well it looked it. No one would let me have a turn as they were having too much fun. We then did two separate sleep overs as I decided it was too much to have them all in one go. So as usual Abi's birthday was very elongated.
They also took part in a colour run on base - as predicted it was very colourful!
