well hello there!

There are so many things to write about and catch up on and there are many Scottish words and traditions to observe with you and moments of sunsets over castles and icy noses to fill you in on, and as I am the very excited owner of a shiny new laptop (thank you pc world), I'll be back with many adventures both cold and new asap! As I move into my cosy little flat with the boy this week posting might be somewhat all over the place (like my stuff right gosh), but the excitement of making a little home might just be too much to keep to myself.

For now, let me say, the crocusses are starting to bloom! The daffodils and jonquils are poking their wee heads through the soil, and this makes me smile a little on the inside.

Until we meet again...

So it's down to three sleeps now till we jet off at Mr and Mrs to the bonny moors of Scotland! There has been so much going on (packing up one's life in two weeks...not recommended), but I must say I'm excited to be off on this grand adventure! Once we settle in and stock the cupboards with tea and haggis* I'll be back chomping at the blogging bit (in a lady like fashion) and writing of all the weird and wonderful ways of life on the continent (I write that as I wonder if that's correct. They may not let me into the country...). Keep in touch, I may be lonely (new boots and a coat have been promised me as way of lessening the blues), but I shall be with the one I love. Which just between us is more excellent than chocolate for breakfast!
The next time I post I'll be blogging from our new little apartment. Most likely sitting on a hotwater bottle and encased in 15 blankets, it'll be a new and wonderful and scary and exciting adventure! And so until then my love's, enjoy the sunshine, perhaps send me a sun lamp so I don't shrivel up (I'm pretty sure that happens), and enjoy today!

Much love xxx

*That's a joke. I've promised never to ever cook haggis. Apparently there's an out there though, because you can get it in a tin. Lovely.
ps AND! Having had my head in the sand for the past 6 months, I've just discovered typo! Perhaps they'll bring it to the UK, yes? Check it out. It's excellent.

HUGE sale!

So as we've had the wedding and used all the extra special vases we wanted for ourselves (I don't know why I'm speaking in third person, but let's run with it), and as we only have 10 days until we leave the country (cripes!), we have discovered we have about a bazillion vases to say farewell to. They're all being listed on our facebook page, and I do believe you might just find something you've always wanted. If you want to purchase in bulk, even better! Pop over and say hello...think of it like charity!
Or something...

A wee sneak peek...

Hello my lovelies! Having arrived back from the most perfect honeymoon in sunny New Zealand just last night, I'm still all excited about looking through the photos! So I thought I might share some! Genius!
Blogging will be at best erratic over the next few weeks, but for now, all that needs said is the day was perfect. Absolutely, beautifully perfect.
