I knew at the beginning of the year that I wanted to let go of the blog. I am in a different place now and I need the space to work through a great many things. I intend to keep the archives up for a time, although I have removed the comment function.
If you have landed here - welcome and feel free to dip in to what was our life - once upon a time...

Leaving a light in the window

Because I will be away for a few days. Off down to Edinburgh for a solo jaunt, catching up with the rest of the family.  Looking forward to seeing Kenneth after a few months, and spending a lovely day with Karen, Finlay and Erin at the Country Living Christmas fair, lunching with Dad and then heading back home.
And - I will be staying in an hotel - on my own!  How exciting is that?  I feel really quite grown up.
I will be back here at the weekend with lots of photographs - see you all then.

And don't forget to enter my little giveaway, if you haven't already. xxxx


  1. Sounds lovely, have a restful time away xxx

  2. Have a lovely trip and soak in all the love and hugs!

  3. Have a lovely time. I'm sure you will. In Sweden, over winter when it's dark, cold and snowy, there is a custom of leaving small wattage lights burning 24/7 at windows around the houses. It's a lovely sight in the depths of winter, sparkling in the cold snowy countryside. Probably originates as a safety beacon of sorts for stranded/lost travellers in the snowy wilderness where a guiding light towards safety and shelter could have been life-saver.

  4. Have a wonder filled trip. Enjoy.

  5. It sounds like you have a lot of fun things planned for your trip! Looking forward to seeing your pictures when you return. Safe Travels!

  6. I love staying in a hotel on my own, that is a holiday in itself. I had to stay in one a little more upmarket than I normally when I landed in Cologne after the touristy information places had closed and really thought it was wasted on me alone. However I did love it and it was such a treat as I normally stay in inexpensive B&Bs when I go off walking with a rucksack (can hardly call it backpacking nowadays).

    Hope you have a great break.

  7. Have a wonderful time I will miss you! Looking forward to your megga picture post when you get back.

    Hugs San xx

  8. You intrepid explorer you! Have a great time.

    Looking forward to the pics and post of your Edinburgh adventure!


  9. Hope you have a lovely time. A hotel! A real hotel! :o)

  10. Oooo, the big city! That would be so much fun, to live on an island, but have the chance to travel back and forth a bit. Just so you can appreciate it even more when you return home.

  11. Lucky you! The Country Living Christmas Fair, AND a hotel! Have a fabulous time!
