Our First Year In The Country

I can’t believe it’s only been a year since we moved from our flat in Aberdeen to our forever home in rural Angus! It feels like home and that we’ve been here forever, although it didn’t always feel that way. After the excitement of selling one place, buying another, packing and unpacking, Allan had to…

Life: An Update

Just now it feels like so much is happening and I don’t have time to do much, but really it’s only a few big things happening and they’re taking up my time! The main thing (if you didn’t know already!) is that in less than two weeks I’m due to give birth to our second…

Life: An Update

Phew! I made it! I survived returning to work after maternity leave! OK, it was only for 14 weeks, but I am 32 weeks pregnant and was getting up at around 5am daily to work a 9 hour shift 65 miles from our home! And it actually wasn’t as bad as I thought it might…

My Year Of Change & The Double Whammy

Hi! You may have noticed I’ve been a bit absent recently (unless you follow me on Instagram!) but I have good reason (honest guv). Things have been…different lately. Elm St Studio Prints via Etsy Here’s a wee recap: This time last year I was single and had just moved into my own cosy little vintage…

Redundancy And Me

In April, the day we left for our weekend away to Aviemore, I was told that I was at risk of redundancy. Our trip away had actually been postponed to that weekend, which turned out to be pretty serendipitous. I had suspected that it may happen. The company had made a few people redundant in…

Review: Graze Breakfast Box

Being Scottish, I’ve eaten my fair share of porridge. Growing up we had it with sugar and milk (don’t think I could bear the salt and water kind!) and I remember thinking it was pretty boring, except for the layer of crunchy melted sugar on top, which I’d always try to save for last! So…

My ̶R̶e̶s̶o̶l̶u̶t̶i̶o̶n̶s̶ Wishes For 2013

New Year’s resolutions seem to be synonymous with good intentions which turn into failure, so I don’t make them.  I’m pretty stubborn and won’t do anything that I don’t want to do and I’m pretty sure that’s part and parcel of being an adult. So there. So this year I’m making a list of wishes….

Before I Leave…

Just a few things for me to let you know about before I go on holiday for a couple of weeks. Oh didn’t I tell you?! 😀 I’m only off to Japan for 10 days! *squee* It’s going to be such an amazing trip that I can’t wait but I will be writing a travel…

National Theatre Live’s Frankenstein

I’ve been a bit quiet this last couple of weeks as I’ve been trying to organise holidays to get away after a very busy time at work, all of which is very stressful in itself and now I need two holidays to make up for it!  In amongst all this panic and madness, something amazing…

Graze Boxes – Nature Delivered

I know that Graze boxes have been around for a while, but I’ve never mentioned them on here before and thought it was about time I bigged them up! I found out about Graze through Twitter after a few of my friends had tried graze boxes and loved them. I got a code for a…
