We’ve been back in Edinburgh for a month since our almost-a-month-long stay in Finland with my parents, but there are still a few photos from the trip I want to share – the last post from there for sure! On our last full day we decided to do a little day trip with my parents, so we headed East to Strömfors Iron Mill.

Snaps from Our Recent Photo Shoot

Ally Bally Bee Project

Just wanted to share a taster of the photos that were the result of our recent Ally Bally Bee Project photo shoot! The photos will be used on the website (see how they’ve brought the website to life here!), on social media and as marketing material. I like them all – apart from the ones I’m in obviously…I was worried our flat wasn’t going to be big enough for the shoot, but it worked out just fine. So without further introductions, here are a few snaps taken by Anna Moffat:

30 Weeks Pregnant on Arthur’s Seat

Posted on

On Saturday I reached 30 weeks in my second pregnancy and it all feels a bit surreal to think that there will be four of us in just 10 weeks…Eeek! I haven’t even started thinking about what we need to prepare for the baby…Anyway, on Sunday we decided to do something outdoorsy as there was no rain in the forecast (for a change) – so we got on the bus, got some amazing cakes and other foods and headed to Holyrood Park for a picnic.

Edinburgh Festival Vibes

Posted on

Don’t know if it’s the terrible weather or me being pregnant and not having had the energy to venture into town on my own with Lana, but the Edinburgh Festival hasn’t really felt like a festival as much as in previous years. We have been to the old town and soaked up the Festival atmosphere during the past two weekends though, so I thought I’d take you with us on our day out on Sunday!

Just a quick post about where we’re at with the Ally Bally Bee Project at the moment – the project behind the world’s first children’s book about dementia that my husband Matthew has been working so hard on for over 2 years now. I’m excited to say that the book is finally here and has been sent out to everybody who ordered it through Kickstarter, woohoo!

My Second Trimester (Second Child)

second trimester

Last Saturday I entered my 28th week of pregnancy and my third trimester – which means my second trimester is done and dusted. Three more months to go before total chaos arrives! The first few weeks of my second trimester I was still lacking in energy and feeling a bit sick, but the rest of it has been pretty uneventful.

Fun, Festivals & Shit Weather

Posted on

Just a quick blog before we start watching Game of Thrones! (So sad this is the last season…) The Edinburgh Festival started on Friday, and on Friday night we had tickets for our first show. It was a stand-up comedy show by half British-half Malaysian Phil Wang that was really funny and that I can highly recommend! Hoping I’ll get to see a few more shows still before the Fringe Festival ends…

When the Girls Came to Visit

Posted on

It’s been 2,5 months already since 7 of my Finnish girlfriends came to Edinburgh for our annual girl’s trip, so I guess it’s time to finally blog about it! At the time I was around 17 weeks pregnant and still not feeling a 100%, so I was a little lazy taking photos – but I’ve borrowed some from my friends, in particular from my friend Kati (hers are all the good ones haha!) to fill out the empty spaces. So let’s get started!
