June is very nearly at an end, and here in the North of Scotland we’re hurtling towards the school holidays. Well, when I say hurtling….dragging ourselves to the finish line at lunchtime on Friday may be a little closer to the mark 🙂 . The end of the summer term is always such a busy…

Six Places to Visit on a Scottish Outlander Road Trip

If you read my blog regularly, you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of the TV series Outlander, a drama based on the series of books by Diana Gabaldon about a woman who finds herself transported back from 1946 Inverness to the Scotland of two centuries before. Her arrival in 1743 cues romance, tension, and lots of beautifully shot…

Birthday Parties, On The Radio, A Giveaway Gift and On Writing – #LittleLoves

March has been a very busy month chez wellies, and with both my boys’ birthdays in the space of the last couple of weeks (bad planning, eh?) I’ve found myself using the expression ‘run ragged’ more than once or twice of late. At the weekend we had two birthday parties, one for my son’s friends…

Faking Friends, Pretty in Pink, A Writing Milestone and Trying to Play the Piano #LittleLoves

Last week was a quieter week here in the WOTSR household, and after the hectic nature of the previous week we were all ready to take a little break. I spent less time writing on my blog and more on writing my book and the play I’ve been working on for my Tuesday evening writer’s group. I’m…

Birthday Celebrations, Mother’s Day, La La Land and Too Many Writing Projects #LittleLoves

It’s been a busy week here in the wellies household, and the last seven days have seen my eldest son’s birthday, postponed World Book Day celebrations, two parties and of course Mother’s Day.

Life Within Four Corners – February 2018

Don’t adjust your screens folks, that’s right, I’m still on February time here at Wellies on the School Run. Between writing posts on my latest Little Loves, a Sunday well spent at the beach and World Book Day last week I just didn’t get around to posting my favourite photos of the month. In future…
