NEW POST - Water of Leith Walkway: Stockbridge, Dean Village and St Bernard's Well, Edinburgh
#WaterofLeith   #WaterofLeithWalkway   #Stockbridge   #DeanVillage   #StBernardsWell   #Edinburgh   #Scotland   #UK   #walking  
We enjoy walking and near our home we can walk the Water of Leith Walkway. On our first walk we explored our home area, Dean Village and saw St Bernard's Well too.
If you're a regular reader of this blog and if you read my Singapore one too you'll know we like to go for walks when we can and Edinburgh, whilst a good deal hillier than Singapore, doesn't disappoint for options. We liv...

NEW POST - The Weekend Before Christmas
It may be  New Year's Eve but we had a fun weekend in London the weekend before Christmas with friends home from Singapore for the festive season.

It's New Year's Eve and we've survived that weird time between Christmas and New Year where nobody knows quite what day it is anymore, TV programmes are all Christmas specials and one offs and you're still eating Christmas le...

NEW POST - It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas
Edinburgh has really gone to town for Christmas with its decorations and festive events and is looking lovely.

NEW POST - Mote Park, Maidstone
Back to playing a bit of catch up on posts and a visit to a park near my parents that had a lot of secrets to reveal to me.

NEW POST - Autumn: Season of Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness
#Autumn #fall #seasons #Edinburgh #Scotland #UK

I always missed seasons living in Singapore so I've really being enjoying my first Autumn in over five years! 
I've said it before but I'll say it again, I missed seasons whilst we were living in Singapore. Even after over five years of living there it still always hit home how certain events and celebrations were intrinsically linked...
