Finland Visitors

Posted on

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.

A Weekend of Scottish Sun

We’ve had another great weekend with sunshine and this time also burnt faces and shoulders. And an attempt to do a clear-out that got interrupted by the nice weather…Which I don’t mind in the slightest! This is what we got up to:

Family Day Out

Spring has arrived in Edinburgh and brought the occasional sunny day with it. One of those days was last Thursday that Matthew had taken off so we could have a family day out after being apart for nearly three weeks – perfect!

Tourists In Edinburgh

Posted on

Pretty much ever since I moved to Edinburgh I’ve been wanting to go on a guided tour in the Old Town, but just never quite made it. We did go on one of those ghost tours in the underground vaults when I was still living in London and only visiting, but we had to interrupt the tour as I thought I was going to faint due to lack of oxygen (and perhaps my hangover had something to do with it too…)

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 🙂

Walkabout

Posted on

Greetings from a very rainy Edinburgh!

I think the best way to get to know a new city is just to go for a walk and get lost. During the past few days I’ve been walking a lot, basically around the whole city (twice). My boyfriend has shown me all the major areas so that I can get an opinion of my own about where to move. I still haven’t seen any ugly parts of Edinburgh so there are many areas I can see myself living in. Anyway, just wanted to share some photos I’ve been taking on my walks so that you can see how pretty it is here!
