Mother's Day @ Pollok House

For Mothers Day I thought it would be nice to take my family on a little trip to Pollok House as we hadn't been for years.
Both my parents are members of the National Trust for Scotland, I used to be but cancelled it after a couple of years as I never really used it, which I thought was fair enough. The little lady at the front entrance however didn't agree and quite abruptly told me so and started trying to badger me into re-signing up. I initially thought her sharp way of talking was a bit of a fun act but when my polite declining wasn't doing the trick and she kept going on, we all started getting a bit uncomfortable. It was only after I pointed out that as it was now quarter to four we really needed to press on and see the house that she let us by but she gave us a very disapproving look.
