A Day in Gullane

We are finally into the first week of normality in 2019 and I am feeling pretty good about it. I like having a routine and getting back into the swing of things. Tonights post is going back to last week and a trip we took to Gullane on January 2nd, just before Ross went back to work. It was set to be a beautiful day and we wanted to spend our day somewhere different rather than wasting our last day of the holidays in the house. A few days before this, Bailey was aloud out for walks so what better thing to do than take a day trip with her. We had to be careful though, as she is still a little baby and we didn’t want to walk her too far and hurt her little legs. But, as usual she surprised us and was raring to go from the moment we got there. We originally planned to go to North Berwick and during our drive we went through a town called Gullane and we …

Overnight at Boclair House

Hello all! Hope you’ve had a lovely weekend just like I have! It was my birthday over the weekend and my husband treated me to a stay at Boclair House Hotel in Bearsden, Glasgow. We decided at the start of the year that instead of buying loads of rubbish for each other at birthdays we would try spend the money on going places instead. For his birthday we went to Turnberry and it was a much better use of our money! This time round Ross picked a winter deal for Boclair House. It was dinner, bed & breakfast. Now, don’t ask me the price because I don’t think it’s fair for me to snoop and find out how much he spent. But, it will be on the website somewhere if you want to know. We stayed in the Iona Suite and it was absolutely stunning. It was decorated quite dark with lots of deep browns and golds. In the middle of the room behind a feature wall there was a massive free standing bathtub with …

Honeymooning in Mexico (Part 2)

One week down, one week to go! Since being here I’ve been in a little bubble that seems surreal. I still can’t get my head around that fact the wedding has passed and so has our amazing honeymoon. Since we were lucky enough to be here for two weeks we dedicated the second one to getting out and experiencing Mexico a bit more, rather than lying by the pool all week again. It started with a very active trip to Coba. It started off in the jungle where we walked about 2 miles to a site of an ancient pyramid. It is one of the 7 wonders of the world and you are still lucky enough to be able to climb to the top. Its 120 steps to the top and believe me when I say this, it’s so steep you basically feel like it’s a straight up vertical climb ( check our honeymoon video) . It even has a rope to help you because it’s so steep! This mixed with 31 degree heat was …

Honeymooning in Mexico (Part 1)

It’s funny that even up until the moment I got to the airport I didn’t feel like it was holiday time. All my focus had been on getting through the wedding that I kind of forgot I was going on honeymoon. However that didn’t last long as the moment we arrived I knew for sure I was in paradise. We chose to stay at the Royal Riviera Cancun. I have honestly never seen or stayed in a resort this big. It has 12 pools, 24hr room service, live shows every night and 6 restaurants to choose from. Since it was a special occasion and it was going to be a holiday of a life time, we booked to stay in a junior suite with our own swim up pool. It was great to have the opportunity to go back to the room and your own pool when the main areas got busy. I’d definitely recommend splashing the extra cash to experience the ‘suite Life’. Unfortunately, the first two days were a wash out. We were …

St Annes on Sea

I took this trip in July but I am only just getting round to posting this! St Annes is a gorgeous sea side town on the outskirts of Blackpool. I used to go there every year when I was little. It was our family vacation spot, same hotel, same time every year. It’s bittersweet to think about it actually. The last time I was there was 2015, just after I graduated from University I went down with my dad, gran and papa for a short holiday. It was lovely, so when Ross decided to go to Prague for this Stag Do my dad jumped at the chance to take me and the family back down for a long weekend. The day we arrived I had been working all day before hand so we were shattered that night. The next morning when I got up it was pouring and I couldn’t help be disappointed, but that soon changed when the sun appeared after breakfast. The first full day we went through to Lytham. Now I absolutely …
