beach holiday

Our summer holiday this year was spent in the little Scottish fishing village of Gardenstown, on the Moray coast.  The cottage we found (Eva’s Cottage) was perfect for a holiday with two small children and a baby – enough space for us indoors (large bedrooms) and two metre’s from the sea.  The sun shone four out of five days.  We spent most time on the beach where the sea was warm when it came in over the sand.

I started blogging after the birth of my first child. Since I stopped working, I realise I am defined far more by my relationships than by what I do. So, I am: wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend.
