After a massive break from blogging, basically lasting from just before lockdown up until now, I’ve decided to put a little love and care back into my blog. There were lots of contributing factors to the lack of posts, but I think mainly living in Groundhog day is the biggie. I mean how can you get the motivation or even any ideas on what to post when you’re repeating similar days/ not having too many exciting events through the year to look forward to and write about. That being said, although 2020 has been a shitter, there have been a few fun things happening…
I’ve had the chance to temporarily move back home to the Outer Hebrides. I can’t think of a better place to be while the world is all going through this craziness. Its been so nice to spend a lot of time with family and keep my normal work routine while on WFH – without work I think I would have lost my sanity.
Ya gal turned 26. I feel like we have all mutually agreed to pause our age since the year has been an absolute write off. But also I was super relieved that lockdown had eased in time for me to move home before my bday so I could enjoy it with family.
If you follow my blog I’m sure you’ll know by now that I grew up on a small Island in the Outer Hebrides. So I wanted to do a post that everyone who grew up in the Islands will relate to. Or if you didn’t you can get a wee glimpse into our life. Enjoy…
My first piece in my travel collection. How exciting!! I thought I would start with one close to my heart. So where else, but my childhood home.
I was super fortunate to grow up in a beautiful, friendly, safe and small Island on the edge of Scotland, way up in the North West. It is not the easiest of places to get to, in fact you are probably cheaper to fly away somewhere nice and hot for the weekend than I am to fly back home. Heartbreaking.
I’m not being biased when I say this, but I honestly believe that if you are a fan of Scotland and all the natural beauty it contains a trip through the Western Isles is a must! I managed within the first year of being with my boyfriend to take him a tour of each island contained in the Western Isles bar one. But this will be rectified in next summers visit home!!
