Bye Bye Sun!

We’ve left the sun, sea and sand in Mallorca behind us and are now back in grey but fortunately not too cold Auld Reekie. Even though both Lana and Matthew caught a cold it was a good holiday and I managed to clock off from work and relax – and since we didn’t pay for internet in our room we had very limited access to social media as well which was actually really nice! 

I’ve got quite a few photos from the holiday that I want to share with you, but it might be a while before I actually get around to writing a post about our trip – there’s just so much going on right now with the whole property-buying thing…I might actually have some news about that, but will tell you more once things are a bit more settled!

Tomorrow we’re going to the Royal Highland Show in Ingliston, which is a huge annual agriculture show with food, shopping and all sorts of events for the whole family. I’m hoping I’ll finally get to meet a Highland Coo!

PS. Today Britain is voting about whether to remain or exit the European Union – another important referendum in a short period of time. This time I’m not allowed to vote, but I have faith in that Britain will decide that a united Europe is stronger!

I’m a Swedish-speaking Finn who left Finland for the lovely and thrilling London town in 2011, but after meeting an equally lovely and thrilling Scotsman I somehow now find myself in the beautiful city of Edinburgh. In February 2015 our gorgeous little girl arrived and made us a happy family of three. Follow my blog and get to know us!

    Härliga foton på Lana! Det blev shockerande nyheter att läsa i morse? Kommer att bli intressant med vad Skotland nu kommer att göra, blir det månne en ny folkomröstning om självständighet?!

      No shit! Var helt säker på att UK skulle stanna i EU – kanske för att jag inte vet en enda person som röstat att lämna…Jo det ser ut som om det kommer att bli en ny folkomröstning – helt galna tider! (Jag tycker det är dags att flytta till Finland nu…?)
