Fifty Days of Summer

All good things must come to an end as the saying goes… And so it is that our seven weeks of school holidays have finally disappeared. Who knew that fifty days could pass so quickly? (I can multiply, by the way – we just got a cheeky extra day 😉 ). 2018 has definitely been…

Beach Days, Bullet Journals, Special Occasions and 90’s Nostalgia – #LittleLoves

The summer holidays are in full swing here in the north of Scotland, and unbelievably, we’ve already passed the half way point of our 7-week long break. The month has been a whirlwind of lovely weather, special occasions, family get-togethers and day trips. Let’s face it, if the weather stays like this for the remainder of…

The North Coast 500, Also Known As Home

There is a road I see from the front door of my home in Caithness that forms part of the North Coast 500. As kids, we knew it better as the road ‘up west’, a passage imbued with the promise of beaches, picnics and sand between our toes. These days, the route has a new title…

The Balance Plan, Barbecues, Once Upon a Time and The Royal Wedding – #LittleLoves

Ah, Little Loves I’ve missed you. It seems such a long time since I’ve shared some of my favourites on here. That said, I’ve rather enjoyed having more time to write about other things since the link up changed to monthly. Over the last few weeks I’ve had a chance to write about travel, opportunities and this…

Life Within Four Corners – Spring 2018

Welcome back to Life Within Four Corners, where I share some of my favourite photos, and the stories that went along with them each season. I used to do this on a monthly basis but to be honest, so many weekly and monthly commitments were getting too much for me to keep up with on…

Blogging, Blushes and a Birthday – Wellies on the School Run is Two!

Wellies on the School Run recently celebrated its second birthday. Well, when I say celebrated….the festivities amounted to me receiving an email from WordPress congratulating me on the happy day 😉 . There was no fanfare, no birthday cake and definitely no birthday bumps – but all the same I thought it was worth acknowledging another little milestone…

Daffodils, Reveal, Abba Fever and a Few Changes – #LittleLoves

It’s been a lovely week here in wellies and for most of the last few days the sun has been shining brightly. Aside from the odd downpour (and that moment of April madness – hailstones?!), the weather has been really very good. We had a lovely morning on Saturday exploring the daffodil gardens at Thrumster…

A Far North Book Festival, Lagom, The Karate Kid and Getting Organised for Spring – #LittleLoves

The last week has been all about getting back into the old routine here in the wellies household. School, work, and the everyday juggles – like it or not, it’s got to be done! Thankfully the weather has been kind enough to ease us in gently and whilst we didn’t quite reach the heady heights…

A Scottish Bucket List for Spring

Last week, I was interviewed on BBC Radio Scotland about Easter holiday planning for families, and some of our campervan adventures (get me, dropping that in so casually, as if I’m a seasoned radio-interviewee who doesn’t get excited about such things – I am not, and I was!) In the interview I spoke about our…

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…
