In the Christmas holidays we went to the Island of Arran in Scotland. We took the train which Little Monkey liked a lot although it got a bit long in the end. Four and a half hours are long even on a train.

The Monkeys made soap. They added a soap shape then poured the liquid soap into molds, adding scent and colour. Big Monkey used a snow flake and made the soap for her cousin. Little Monkey made a yellow submarine in an orange soap. This they liked very much. We also did a lot of walking exploring the island when it wasn't raining too hard. This the Monkeys didn't like that much.

Crochet beanie

I crocheted a hat for Daddy. It was meant to be a Christmas present but as he only told me the day before it took a while longer to get it done.

Nice wavey lines in pretty colours. Baby Monkey thought it was pretty and thought she shows it off. On the school run to drop off the other monkeys.
