For our wedding anniversary we went to Edinburgh without the kids for a few days. Despite being part Scottish on my Father’s side I had never been north of the border. I am happy to report, I flipping loved it up there. So many old buildings to look at. Museums and galleries are ten a penny. Pubs and restaurants are everywhere! To be in the home of real whiskey with an allergy to alcohol really does suck. Hahaha! Things to do in Edinburgh, well there are all the whiskey tours. They will cost you about £30 to have a distillery tour with a few wee drams of the strong stuff. There are also loads of walking tours of the city. They were on many different themes, ghost walks, history tours, organised pub crawls and adult only rude tours. These tours vary greatly in pricing from £10 to £25 per person […]
Recently Love The Sales got in touch, and I had a gander around their website. Impressed! Being a tall girl I struggle with finding things that fit, normally if online clothing shops do have a tall range it’s only a few items, and it takes AGES to hunt for something I like. It’s a website that pools together discounted products from other websites, so you can find brands you like at better prices. What’s not to like? The best thing I did on Love the Sales was search the word “tall” in the box in the top corner – Pandora’s box was opened, it was now only showing me lanky lass clothes. Then on the left sidebar I selected my clothing size, like magic I’m only seeing things in the tall ranges of several stores, just in the 2 sizes I usually buy from and if you then sort it […]
This week was my little chaps birthday. It’s been a bit of a stressful week for me, Doris Dog needed stitches and minor surgery following a second and a half long argument with Freya Woof. It cost a fortune, but sensibly I had pet insurance so I just had to pay the excess.
This weekend I went to a Christmas market but my favourite snaps were not of Crimbo things. I don’t know about you but I think these look like picture postcard photos. Very pleased that I took these. Anyhow, what did you get up to this weekend?
The last few days we have been camping in Devon, hence the silence from myself on social media. I get ordinary phone signal, but 3G has gone on holiday round these parts. We are staying on the River Dart country park. It is nice, we are pitched under the overhang of a sycamore tree, all around us is more family tents.
What is with kids and boxes. A boring parcel arrived, but Jen has made it fun.
London is a very strange and beautiful city. Some really old buildings like St Paul’s cathedral, and then the ultra modern like the Shard. Nothing really fits in the capital, yet is this jumble-sale style mixture of architecture that make it what it is. I wouldn’t change it, personally I love London. London… Legoland style! The obvious “best view” place is the London eye, just towering above the Thames and County Hall below. A fave way to the capital is hop on a river boat, not one of those ferries, but a smaller company is often better. As for the commentary, priceless!
#MMskydive might be over but I am still fundraising and my justgiving page is open until Christmas. So no problem if you are waiting for pay day to donate a pound or three? I paid £95 myself for a camera man to jump out next to me. This means I have 90 pictures, in HD no less, clearly documenting my fear, panic attack and well, terror and pain. If I get to £500 on my justgiving page I’ll share them. They are BAD! I’ve shared just 5 of them with the skydive team and they’ve been wetting themselves laughing.
My little lad, Jen, decided to pretend to be a bunny. The real pet bunnies are a bit confused by this…..
