What’s been happening recently … October

A little late this month, but here are some random pics of what happened in October.



An October visit from Mum

My mum came to visit us for two lovely, glorious weeks in October. I miss her so much and I hate that we live so far apart so we made the most of every day we had together.

We were lucky because the weather was great almost every day and we did so much in the two weeks she was here.


It was great spending time with her and catching up. In the gorgeous weather we went on several lovely walks in the autumn sun.


We also went to the zoo and ‘climbed’ Calton Hill for some great views and to find out why Edinburgh is called ‘The Athens of the North’.  

It’s always strange when you have visitors that it feels like you see the city you live in, in a completely different light as you take time to look at things that you normally just routinely walk past.

We chatted, laughed, played games, and sadly, after two weeks it was time to say goodbye.

Let me just say, I love my mum and I can’t wait to spend time together again soon!
