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 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?!

I’ve mentioned that I had a fun work event I had to attend when my parents were visiting, and I’ve finally managed to put together a blog post about it – with quite a few photos so you’ve been warned…Couldn’t help myself as the venue, Rock House in the photo above, is just too stunning! 

My First Visitor

Posted on

After 4 months in Edinburgh I finally get my first visitor, perfectly timed for the last weekend of the festival and last weekend of summer. It was so nice to have one of my friends visiting so I could show her how lovely Edinburgh is! Weather was quite nice too, warm enough for bare legs 🙂

Wee Edinburgh

I’ve been to Edinburgh twice before, so I knew pretty much what to expect when moving here a week ago. Everyone goes on and on about how pretty a city it is – which I totally agree with. (Just look at my professional iPhone photos below.)
