Flying A Helicopter

Posted on


Seen one of these before? It’s my brother’s new toy – a remote-controlled mini helicopter used to take photos or film from above. When my bro got the helicopter out we all just flocked around him to see this amazing technology in action. The chopper can fly up to 500 metres! I was surprised by how good the quality is and how steady the drone is. 

Second Week In Finland

Posted on


Another busy week in Finland is over. We’ve spent time with Lana’s cousins, visited her great grannies, had dinner with friends, gone on many walks, visited the old town, soaked up some rays, taken loads of photos, eaten plenty of berries and ice cream and much more I can’t think of right now. In other words a great second week!

Finnish Summer Nature

Posted on


Finnish nature is at its best at the moment: green and full of colour. I got so inspired by the abundance of flowers on our evening walk the other day that I was too focused on snapping photos to notice the lovely little fella we bumped into. Scroll down to the end to find out who he was!

Picking Berries

I love all sorts of berries, and would happily eat them every day if they weren’t so expensive. So now when I can pick delicious and nutritious berries for free here in Finland I definitely want to make the most of it!

First Week In Finland

Posted on


We’ve been in Finland for a week already, with Matthew returning home to Edinburgh very early on Monday morning. Again, Lana was great on both flights and charmed everyone, including two cute little boys (is this how it’s going to be – flirting with all the boys whenever she gets a chance?!)

First Meetings

Posted on


During our two weeks in Finland Lana naturally got to meet quite a few new people, and I tried to be there with the camera to snap some memories – as I doubt Lana will remember much from the visit!

A Little Get-Together For Lana

Posted on


During our visit to Finland my parents kindly organised a little get-together for the closest family to celebrate the arrival of wee Lana. It was also Lana’s first chance to get all dressed up in a little dress – and actually look a bit more like a little girl 🙂

Back From Moominland

Yet another visit to Finland is now over, sadly. This was the first visit with Lana, who was a little angel on all four flights with no signs of ear pain during take off and landing, pfeew! Lana got to meet so many new people and see so many new places that she’s all exhausted now and has done nothing but slept all day yesterday – I didn’t know what to do with myself with all the free time haha.
