We went to the Riverside Museum in Glasgow today and had fun looking at all the lovely old cars, bicycles, motorbikes, boats and other forms of transport. I love the museum and all its things, but the displays I like the most are the old trams and the steam trains.

I’ve called the museum the Riverside Museum cos that’s its official name, but in my heart of hearts it’s still the old Transport Museum to me (that’s what it was called before it moved into its shiny new building down by the Clyde last year or the year before). I’m probably not alone amongst the folk who live in and around Glasgow!!

It was just me and the kids – poor hubby was at work – and I was quite glad to get the kids indoors for an hour (never thought I’d say that!!) cos it was so hot outside. We went there, rushed around the exhibits (cos my kids rush everywhere), had lunch, bought marbles (they conned me out of it!) and then left to buy ice-cream at the van outside the museum (it had to be a 99 for me!). We got home mid afternoon and I was exhausted…I think the heat must have drained me!

Anyway, it was a good day and we all enjoyed the exhibits. My fave bit…eating ice-cream outside! Yummy.
