On Sunday we had arranged for the girls to spend some "alone" time with their dad. This meant both of them had about an hour on their own with Merv so they wouldn't be competing for his attention all the time. I spent time with the other time on their own so the same would work for them and me.
Reagan went to spend time with Merv first. They played in the grounds near where Merv stays and went for a walk. Jordan and I spent this time at the gate lodge as she didn't really want to do much other than watch tv. We then walked to meet Merv and Reagan and swapped children. Reagan and I went for a walk around the main house and through some wooded area while Jordan and some other patients played with Jordan. We all met up again after that and had lunch in the dininghall, a typical roast Sunday lunch.
After luch we went for another walk with another patient coming along. It was quite muddy but a very nice day for a walk and we saw some very interesting things along the way. When we got back to the castle grounds the girls needed to go to the toilet and I spent some time with the other patient looking around the graveyard that's situated in the grounds. This was very interesting as there were some very old graves there and some of the inscriptions on the tomb stones were strange and sometimes funny.
We didn't do much the rest of the day.
