Green Book, Sea Swimming, A Weekend Away and A Leavers Assembly – Little Loves

If I could describe June in one word it would be this one: whirlwind. The last month of the academic year here literally flew by, with all sorts of end-of-term activities, and transition arrangements for my eldest moving up to High School after the summer break. It’s also been an emotional time, with a series of…

Snow Days, Post Pals and Lots of Writing – Little Loves

It seems like forever since I wrote a Little Loves post (to be honest it has been a while as I don’t join in with Little Loves in December). Whereas most people join up with the linky on the last Friday of every month, I just do it when I can manage (which usually ends up being about a week after…

Islander, A Shopping Trip, Parkrun and Autumn Everything – September’s Little Loves

It seems like forever since I shared my last little loves update on here. September was such a busy month, with lots of Autumnal adventure, and also plenty going on at home. I’ve been beavering away on the second draft of my novel and trying to stick to my weekday target of 500 words daily. Over…

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…

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…

Binge-Worthy TV, Snowdrop Walks and School Discos – #LittleLoves

It’s been a week of two halves here in the North of Scotland, with a mixture of Spring mornings and wintry afternoons. We enjoyed sun and snowdrops on a Sunday dog walk before a return to actual snow a bit later the same day 🙂 Yesterday the world was pretty and white again – if you read…

Thirteen Reasons Why, Mushroom Risotto and a Gift to Treasure – #LittleLoves

Welcome to another Little Loves roundup and hello February! I know we all joke about January being the longest month ever, but I have to say, I think so far, 2018 is flying in.

Reading, Watching Listening to Lately – August 2017

Summer may be coming to an end here in the Scottish Highlands, but earlier sunsets and dark evenings do have a few upsides, and the excuse to curl up with a book, movie or a box set have to be pretty much at the top of my Autumn-ready list. I’ve had a fantastic run of books and entertainment over…
