The weather has been pretty good recently and there’s been some really nice skies. It’s been warm and the kids have been out playing and having a great time.
Because it’s the holidays (I have another week off work…yippee!) and we’re not going anywhere, we’re trying to take the kids on wee day trips here and there. Hubby still isn’t up to full strength, so it has to be somewhere near-ish and something he can do without walking too far. This week we went to see the new Minion movie at Clydebank. The kids loved it, we thought it was pretty average. In fact, it’s safe to say I doubt I’ll ever watch it again. Then we went to Frankie & Benny’s for lunch. Was nice to go out as a family again after months of poor hubby being so ill.
We had a few days at home and today we ventured into Glasgow to the Kelvingrove Art Galleries and Museum in the westend. I have loved this place since I was a kid and hope my kids love it too.
I took the camera, so here’s a wee selection of what you can see inside the museum…
I found it odd seeing this armour with guns as I thought armoured soldiers just had swords and spears, but apparently there were guns around in 1610 when the armour and the guns were made and folk were still wearing armour. You learn something new every day!
You can’t go to a Glasgow museum without having some sort of Rennie Mackintosh influence!
The heads (or heids as they say here in Glasgow). I love these.
I just love the costumes. I wish there were more on display. I wish there was a museum of costume in Glasgow – there was one in the Borders, I don’t know if it’s still there – and I’d go all the time. The work on this dress is stunning.
Couldn’t go by Robert Louis Stevenson without taking a quick pic.
Not sure where we’ll go next week. The boy wants to go back to Vikingar! in Largs – I’ve never been but I’d like to go. Ho hum! Decisions, decisions.
Right, am off. Dinner is nearly ready and I’ve got plans to do stuff tonight (yes including writing!). Til next time!
