I’ve been meaning to do a blog post about this lovely shop at the bottom of Broughton Street for ages – but it actually makes more sense to do it now, in the midst of my ‘decorating our new home’-frenzy! Life Story is a lifestyle shop that sells lots of cool stuff you NEED for your home by several Scandinavian and Scandi-inspired designers. There is no end to the Scandi-boom!
There’s been a lot going on lately with moving house, travelling, arguing about stupid things, painting and a bunch of other stuff I won’t talk about here – so I haven’t had the time or energy to update the blog as much. Which is a shame as I feel there’s so much I’d like to share here! Anyway, I thought painting the whole flat would be a fairly quick thing to do, and I guess it could’ve been without Lana…But hey, we’ll get things done eventually! Yesterday I finally unpacked the last boxes, so that felt good.
Last week we welcomed some friends from Finland who came to stay with us for 3 nights – and it was so nice to be able to offer them a room to stay in now that we’ve moved to a bigger place! Lana also really enjoyed having her 11-month old friend here and kept asking for “baby” that she called him for days after they left haha.
Last Saturday Matthew’s sister picked us up in the morning and we headed to the 1000-acre big Dalkeith Country Park for a nice day out in the countryside. I was also looking forward to exploring the newly opened Restoration Yard – a new retail, food, drink and wellbeing space in the park’s old stableyard. I had heard good things about the shop but was still amazed by how nice it was (and the prices weren’t too bad either). It was so nice that I took around a million photos!
It’s exciting times at the moment. As I mentioned in my last blog post, we’re looking for a place to buy – and I think we’ve found one we want to make an offer on! It’s a bit inconvenient that we’re going to Mallorca for a week on Tuesday morning though, but I’m sure we can work around that somehow.
I was reading a “my day” blog post by a Finnish mummy blogger, and decided that I want to do one as well – don’t know about you but I’m always curious about what a normal weekday looks like for other people with children. I’ve done a photo an hour post in the past, but that was on a Sunday when we usually get out and do more – so this time I want to make sure it’s just a normal weekday. Here’s what last Wednesday looked like:
