Even though I didn’t sleep well last night I woke up this morning feeling energised and decided I’m going to get a lot done today. Since we didn’t have any solid plans I thought it’ll be a good day to do a blog about a very typical Sunday of ours. I love these kind of posts and I hope you won’t find it boring!
Last Saturday was gloriously sunny with bright blue skies – a perfect day to visit Edinburgh Zoo. Matthew and I were really excited as in our heads we were imagining how superexcited Lana would be, and that made me want to go even though I find zoos to be quite sad places. She’s actually been there once before when she was only 7 weeks old and slept through the whole visit in her sling.
I had such a nice, relaxing Saturday that I just have to share it with you. There was a few things I needed to do for work (perfect excuse to get some me-time) and since the sun was out and I had my camera with me it quickly turned into a photo tour of the Old Town…Matthew took Lana swimming so they were enjoying themselves as well!
Before I start watching the new Gilmore Girls (so excited) I wanted to come here and dump a bunch of photos on you! Last Tuesday I felt like I wanted to do something new with Lana but was a bit tired from the night before and didn’t have the energy to travel very far. The perfect solution were the Glasshouses at the Botanics that I’ve been wanting to visit for ages!
We go to the Botanics all the time – it’s near our house and such a beautiful place to hang out in. So when the opportunity came to enjoy our favourite Edinburgh green space after dark, enhanced by lights and music, I obviously had to go! Botanic Lights is an event that takes place in the Botanic Garden from the 13th October to 6th of November where visitors follow a magical trail of light through the gardens.
We finally had internet installed yesterday (it was a tough 5 days I have to admit), which means I can tell you a bit about the move to our new home! Our moving day was Saturday, and with the help of a man with a van and Matthew’s brother (thanks again Daniel!) we managed to move all our stuff to the new place in just over 2 hours. Not bad!
We’re moving to our new flat this Saturday and it feels surreal, exciting and sad at the same time. Surreal because we haven’t really allowed ourselves to get too excited before we get the keys and are hence maybe not all that prepared mentally. Exciting because we’re finally moving into a place that we can call our own and do whatever we want with, yay! And sad because the flat we’re in now is where Lana spent the first 1,5 years of her life and for some reason I don’t like the thought of strangers moving into “our” home…Can anyone relate?
Today I had to visit a place just off the epicentre of the Edinburgh Festival, the Royal Mile, and I couldn’t resist taking Lana to see the street performances and all the madness going on after – even though pushing a buggy in a crowd is not my idea of fun…It wasn’t too bad though and it was worth it as Lana was definitely entertained (and a wee bit confused)!
