Soaking up that evening sunlight in our part-furnished new living room with mad hair, paint spattered clothing, splintered hands and last - but most certainly not least - gin. Feeling content af.
Due to moving abode, major DIY-ing and attempting to navigate general life admin, Insta and the blog has taken a bit of a back seat for me recently - but FEAR NOT for I have an unrelated 2-month old photo of me standing by a wall in Aberdeen in my grid reserves. . On a (slightly) more serious note, I’ve been trying to think recently about all the things I’m grateful for to keep those pesky Neggy Nancy thoughts at bay. And even though I have so much great stuff in my life right now, my streams of gratitude always run back to the same place - my wonderful group of excellent close pals. Whether I’m having a life meltdown or just need someone to share a gin and lols with, a small but select crew of people are always there to help me celebrate the triumphs and support me through the shittier times. . So I guess this photo isn’t entirely unrelated, as it was taken the morning after I emotionally and somewhat physically relied on my pals’ support....up the stairs to bed 🍷 To wrap up - love to all my pals. You really are all just the bestest and I am FOREVER grateful for your existence 💜 cos without pals what the hell’s the point eh?

In other news, today is basically my Friday as I’m working a half day tomorrow since we get the KEYS to OUR FIRST OWNED HOME TOGETHER 🙌🙌🙌 it’s been 3 months since our bid was accepted so the fact it’s been a long wait makes tomorrow all the sweeter I feel! . We have a mammoth journey of DIY projects ahead of us so any tips on maintaining sanity would be much appreciated. Currently top of the list: gin. . 📷: @kkland
Apologies for my slightly off-the-grid grid at the moment. I’ve been mad busy with the hectic amount of life admin that involves buying a property and actually moving into it (next week, argh!) while still trying to maintain a job, social life and half decent mental health. My photographer is also somewhat selfishly in the states for 2 weeks so those (unconvincing) candid shots have taken a bit of a hit too. So with weather like today, here’s a pic of me from a couple of months ago in mustard @jadedareuk . ‘Cos it wouldn’t be a Scottish summer without a jumper or two amirite...
