April Sunset!

Image
Karen and I were out doing our grocery shopping tonight and on the way home we saw the sun was setting. So we made a dash to the beach to see if I could get a shot of it.
We sat and watched it disappear into the sea.  It was stunning!!
Taken with my iphone - thanks goodness for the iphone camera! :))


Playing Catch-up!

Image
Well here I am playing catch up again,  it's been two weeks since my last post! The trouble with falling behind is trying to remember what I've been up to!
First of all I've been feeling a bit under the weather for the last wee while, however I've been to see the doc. who has given me some tablets and I'm now just about back up to scratch, which is always a good thing :)
The other weekend -I can't remember which one - we had some fog. Now we don't usually get much fog here but this lasted for the whole weekend. It wasn't widespread it just seemed to lie over the sea. 
It was very strange. I went down to the beach with my phone to grab a picture. I don't know if you can make the fog out but it was definitely there.


Karen has decided to take up quilt making - we are so impressed with her efforts. 
She made Riley a quilt for his birthday. 
He LOVES Thomas the Tank Engine. 


And I've started knitting - I used to do this many years ago and I loved it!  So I …

Turning Two

Our wee Riley turned two!
Laura and Riley came to stay with us for the weekend.  Never a dull moment was had all weekend :)
We went to visit Great Gran and Great Grandad and he had a shot on the keyboard while his Great Gran and Gran looked on in pride :)
 He looks like a natural don't you think. I can really see him being a rockstar in  years to come!!!  
Oh there's a thought, I wonder how his mum might feel about that  hee hee.

And here is he with his his Aunty Karen, making his own birthday cake - maybe he won't be a rockstar after all,  perhaps he will be a chef!!!


And here he is with his mummy sharing a laugh - isn't he just the cutest wee chap!

They left to go home on Sunday at lunch time and boy was the  house quiet. 
He certainly is the life and soul wherever he goes.
We are really missing his contagious giggle and winning smile.

It's Been How Long!!!

Image
I've almost forgotten how to put a post up - it's been soooooo long.  In fact October 2014 was  the last time!
It's been nagging at me to come back for quite a wee while now, but tonight I finally decided just to do it and not just think about it.
So, an update is in order I think!  Let's see now what have I been up to.
Emm, hum -  how can 6/7 months go by and it feels as if I haven't done much!
First off I don't think I ever mentioned it but Karen graduated with honours from university  - we are so proud of her - all of her hard work and dedication paid off.  Now she is just waiting to find her dream job which I'm sure isn't too far away.
Emma finished her 6 months in Germany and is now back at university in Glasgow and in her 3rd year. 
We visited her in Germany in January and spent the week in Berlin (some pictures below). It was a cold, wet, snowy dismal week but we enjoyed it anyway, so much to see and do.
Laura is getting married in December.  Bridal and b…
