    Although I love the one of James and Zoe drinking their milk in costa coffee in their buggy I decided to pick the one of Pilrig House. It looks very peaceful and I love the old gentlman haveing a wee stroll through the park. I want to do Mary Poppins and jump in. Was their a carasel in the distance?

    My favourite sketch (apart from the Kindy one for obvious reasons!) is Heartsbus…a big family moment in our household as Dad, Kevin and wee Archie celebrated the Hearts win together!

    For me, it has to be “Queen Mary’s Bath House” as my all time favourite. I can almost feel myself standing opposite it staring at the House in awe.
