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!

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!

Join Me for a Magical Instameet at Lauriston Castle

Last weekend I attended an Instameet (for work) organised by the Edinburgh Magic Festival at Lauriston Castle, and it was such a nice event that I want to share some photos with you! The reason the Magic Festival did an Instameet at the castle is that they’ll actually be doing ‘Secret Room’ shows there during the festival where a magician takes you through the rooms and does magic tricks inspired by the room itself. I would go if I wasn’t in Finland!

The Cutest Courtyard Cafe

Posted on

Yesterday I attended an Instameet at Lauriston Castle organised by Edinburgh Magic Festival. It was a great meet-up I’ll be blogging more about later, but meanwhile I just wanted to share some snaps from the incredibly pretty courtyard cafe at the castle I couldn’t stop taking photos of!

A Perfect Father’s Day

Posted on

We’ve had a long day today and a brilliant Father’s Day altogether. Lana’s been on form and walked with us for hours and hours as we didn’t even bring the buggy. She’s passed out in her bed now and I think we will be soon too! Warm weather always makes you that little bit extra tired.

When the Family Came to Visit

Posted on

It’s been a month since my parents and my second youngest brother (I’ve got 5!) came to visit. My parents actually visited for the first time exactly one year ago, but luckily this year the trees were still full of cherry blossom. It was a much needed visit as we hadn’t seen them since our last visit just after Christmas. Scroll down to see what we got up to!

A Beachy Weekend

Posted on

Here I am blogging again! The UK has seen the warmest weekend this year so far, and even Scotland has enjoyed some warmer temperatures – which means that even if I have a cold I’ve had to head out to enjoy the “heat”. Because in this country you really need to seize these days! So here are some photos from the past few days, taken with my crappy phone…

A Family Weekend

It’s been just the three of us all weekend and even though we haven’t had any special plans we’ve managed to come up with lots of fun stuff to do (and eat). I like to have plans for the weekends and can feel a bit anxious and stressed even if we don’t, so I’ll always make sure we get out after breakfast at least on one of the days. Does anyone else feel this way? I mean, as a parent I should enjoy days where I don’t have to do anything right?!
