My goodness, this week has been utterly crazy. So crazy that I only managed to read 2 Shadowhunters books (my current obsession), because I was spending the rest of the time being busy or being too exhausted to read! Argh! The first fews days of the week passed in a flurry of productivity. I prepared … Continue reading Exhausted: The Week In Review
Our first few days in Edinburgh felt like a dream. After so many months of dreaming about being back in Edinburgh, planning our move, preparing to leave, and 44 hours of travel, it was hard to believe that this was our new reality.

For us, … Continue reading The Expat Diaries: The Preparation Phase

I had the brilliant idea earlier this week to bring it back. I've been keeping a little section in my BuJo where … Continue reading What Happened This Week?
It's been a while since I've done one of these, but I'm trying to get back into the swing of things. I figured a good way to get back into things was to turn some of my tour guide stories into blog posts. I don't think I'll be a tour guide for much longer (more … Continue reading History Walks: The Royal Mile
