Six on Saturday #2

I haven’t been able to get around to another Six on Saturday for the past few weeks, stuff keeps getting in the way of my fun! The sun has been punishing my garden this week. Everything is beginning to look pretty dehydrated and we’re in great need of some rain. Here’s my very sunny six!…

Homebuilding & Renovating Show

A few weekends ago we returned to the Homebuilding & Renovating Show, this time in Glasgow. Last year we had attended when we were in early planning stages, still wondering if we could actually do this. Ahhhh, we were so young, with such stars in our eyes!

Six on Saturday #1

Oh, the places we’ll go!

I have a list of places in the Scottish Borders that I’ve been meaning to visit. It’s the typical scenario of not doing “touristy” things when they’re right on your doorstep. With the potential for a move growing I feel like we should be doing these sooner rather than later. Here’s my quick list: Isle…
