A tasty breakfast, pre 8 - even the EP was up as there were things for her to do...






Later on, she was off to Jane & Bobby's re an invite from nephew Olly to watch Hearts lose yet again (to Scotland's newest club at Castle Greyskull)...

Oh well...

Meanwhile, I downloaded a shed load of Polish music...

Hmmm...

And recorded a possibly for uploading Blue Note podcast (with no chat)...

Also, hmmm...

On Anne's return from the game, out to my mum's as Andrew jnr, Tori and wee Dougie were up from Yorkshire for a visit...

At first the wee man was not that much fun...


But we waited...



Chum Shivvy was here too to try and fix mum's phones...

Mum was ok, all things considered, after yesterdays fall and enjoying a full house...




Soon, the wee man was awake...


...and his dad was making coffee...


Sheila had been baking (no pics) - top notch scones, tray bake and chocolate cake - all very healthy of course!

The wee man got something he likes...


Shivvy's dog, Pip, was on hand too to entertain...


A lovely wee monkey indeed...





Sister Pam looked on...

She'd have liked Wee Dougie...

As would've my dad, old Dougie...


Oh well...

Of course, the boy was not always well behaved...




I discovered he likes interacting with my mum's Hoover...






..and spotting who are in photos...



Yes that is indeed your Great Uncle David...


...yes, Mr Speccy in the pic...


I also discovered he liked interacting with my mum's stairlift...





...and her problematic phone system...


We left my mum looking at Andy and Tori's recent holiday pics from Greece...


...and headed home, to be visited by a very relaxed Tiger...


A tasty Chinese was followed by a good "Dr Who" and then, around four hours of  Eurovision...

My scoring - once again, slightly out of kilter with the rest of Europe...


And here, my "as it happened" scoring - you can see Spain having been deducted points for being quite possibly the worst song ever to have appeared at Eurovision - I should really have given it zero points...


And that was it - victory for Portugal - an unlikely winner amongst all the razzmatazz...

To bed after a busy day...

Highlight of the Day : Family visit and Eurovision...
