Two days in Edinburgh.

As a gift for his birthday, I decided to take Guy to a country he has never visited before… Scotland! We stayed in Edinburgh and enjoyed a brilliant two days exploring the city and being tourists! So here’s the second vlog we’ve ever recorded and hopefully, it’s an improvement from the first (if you missed that one, click here)!


I should apologise for the lack of posts recently, there is no excuse- life just got in the way – i’m sure you know how it is! Fingers crossed i’ll be able to get posting on a more regular basis from now on! Thanks for you patience!

Dovestones Trip & our first vlog!

IMG_0141We recently enjoyed a trip to Dovestones, a reservoir near where we live. We took our family dog (Elphie) and my sister & her boyfriend came along too. It was so nice to have some quality time together and to enjoy the sun, which- let’s face it- doesn’t often make and appearance in Manchester!

Here’s our first ever vlog which we captured that day – hope you enjoy!

Day Trip to York

Yesterday Guy and I made the most of half term and had a day out in York. We actually spend a lot of our time together -working in the same school means we are rarely apart-but being busy teachers means that we don’t often get quality time alone. It was really nice to spend the day doing as we please, it’s actually the only day this week where we didn’t have plans or things to do.

We had a lie in and arrived in York just after noon. The weather was gorgeous; the sun was out and it finally felt like Spring has arrived! We enjoyed walking around and seeing the sights. I found a gorgeous bridal shop which gave me lots of inspiration for tables decorations and accessories for the bridesmaids! For lunch we visited the oldest inn in York and indulged in traditional steak and ale pies!

I only took a few pictures, but wanted to share them here – if you have never been to York, I really recommend it – it’s a fantastic day out!
