Quinnycasting, a fond farewell.

Well, we’ve been thinking about the best way to “say goodbye” to our days as a Quinnycaster.  We thought we could go a big outing but in the end it was such a beautiful day we just took a walk around where we live, doing what we do on the days we have off together.


First we visited the ducks.  Zapp was abandoned by Becky.



The ducks came over for a good old nosey.


 Becky stayed out of the buggy so mummy she could push it up the hill.  I’m sure St Blane didn’t have to do this when he founded Dunblane on this hilltop 1600-odd years ago.


NONE  shall pass!  One of the elderly oaks had taken a battering with the frost.  I had to pass the buggy underneath to Becky!




Back in the buggy to head homeward to…


…view the piece de resistance!  We are avid followers of the blog “Cake Wrecks” so Becky and I set about a mission to make our own Quinnycakewreck.  Henceforth we present to you:


Every cake needs candles.

Every candle needs a kid to blow them out.


“BALLOONS, WE NEED BALLOONS MUMMY!” <thank crunchie for Tesco across the road, mummy runs to buy balloons, runs home and lights the candles>

“I blow it out.”
“Go for it, Becky!”
<Becky blows out the candles>
“Um, sing what, Becky?”
“HAPPY BIRTHDAY!”  <mummy duly obliges>

In all honesty it marks the end of an era as our buggy-using days with Becky are coming to an end.  We do want another in the future (baby that is, not buggy) so that begs the question of what to do with the buggy in the interim.  My sister-in-law has just given birth to our gorgeous niece so we’re considering sending the buggy on holiday to them in Geneva so that someone else can be given the opportunity like we were to try it out.  Photos to follow in April when we’re over there visiting them, potentially!
Shortly I'll add a wee montage of my favourite Quinnycasting photos.  Quinnycasters team, your cake’s in the post.  Assuming Becky hasn’t eaten it when I wasn’t looking…
