Reading Lately – August 2018

After a fantastic month of reading in July, August has been a little bit patchy. I’ve had a few false starts with books I haven’t really gelled with and have found myself dotting around between the three books I have actually managed to complete. Dips in attention span aside, I think one of the reasons…

Ten Outlander Locations in the North Highlands of Scotland

If you’re a regular reader of my blog I don’t think I need to repeat myself here: I’m a big Outlander fan. From epic Scottish landscapes to heart-pounding romance, the TV series (and the books that inspired it), has so much to recommend. Not least of these is the opportunity to cavort around Scotland in search…

Reading Lately – May 2018

It’s going to be a quick round up this month, as I’ve had a light month on the book front. After all my boasts about my exciting to-read pile last month I managed to read the sum total of just two 😉 . That said, one of them was Outlander, which stretches to over 850…

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…

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…

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…

Outlander, Road Trips, Watching the Sunset and Holiday Reading – #LittleLoves

Gosh it seems such a long time since I wrote on here about my Little Loves! In one way the school holidays seem to have flown by and in another I seem to have done very little blogging for so long. I do try to keep my blog ticking over during holiday periods, but usually…

Snow Days, Rebel Girls and The Secret -#LittleLoves

It’s been a wintry old week here in the North of Scotland, and we’ve been enjoying several days of fun in the snow. It started with a day off school last Tuesday followed by a run of 10 am starts (which we could totally get used to), with lots of the white stuff falling and too…

Some Kind of Wonderful, Vikings, Outlander and Writing Lessons – #LittleLoves

Welcome to another week of little loves and wellies! It’s been another lovely week here – despite my moans about all of us getting back into the old routines of school and work 😉 I may have spent a lot of the last week preparing invoices and paying tax bills, but that didn’t stop me enjoying another meeting of…

Life Within Four Corners – My Favourite Photos of 2017

Earlier this year, I started a monthly blog series called Life Within Four Corners –  somewhere I could share my favourite photos and the stories that went along with them from the preceding month.  Over time it’s become a virtual photo album and a place to store my monthly highlights. So to finish off the…
