As some of you know by reading my previous post about Our Stories of Motherhood, I am starting a new and exciting photography project. When I wrote my previous post about the project it was very early days, it was literally on the day when the idea came to me. But I just had to commit … Continue reading Step out of your comfort zone with me!
I have just been swimming with JJ and now he is napping in the buggy whilst I am enjoying a Starbucks coffee. The sunshine is beaming through the window but it is quite cold outside. You know that emotion when you all of a sudden get feel so thankful. That is how I am feeling … Continue reading Thankful Thursday
Breastfeeding a toddler I read a lovely quote by Alanis Morissette the other day “I see my body as an instrument, rather than an ornament”, it made me think about breastfeeding and it fits just perfectly how I look at my body and its ability to feed JJ, who is now 20 months old and … Continue reading Breastfeeding a toddler
I like having a routine and to do set things on set days. We have days when we go to toddler groups, swim lessons and 8 hours each week JJ is with his childminder (this is when I clean the house, do laundry, cook and blog) . Wednesday is our midweek adventure day. I love … Continue reading Mid week adventure at Gordon Castle Walled Garden
JJ is now 19 months old and he is forming an opinion which is not always the same as ours. A few times we have had situations where someone has said, "ohh he is having a tantrum". I can not explain how much I dislike that sentence. He is not having a tantrum! He is … Continue reading Tantrums are not bad

Our Christmas is being spent in Scotland with James's family. I am lucky to have such nice in-laws that I see them as … Continue reading Merry Christmas
The night before we left the Faroes the Christmas lights in my hometown were turned on. It was lovely to be there for the occasion and it also meant a lot to my parents to have me and JJ there. Since me and James met we have celebrated every other Christmas in the Faroes and … Continue reading Fire engines and christmas lights
I have been very excited to put this blog post together about some of the amazing food that we had on our holiday in the Faroe Islands. Lamb and fish make up a large part of the faroese food. The taste of both fish and lamb are very much determined by the method of preserving them. … Continue reading A Culinary Adventure
First of all I have to explain the title. Literally translated it means Granny yolk and grandad crab. This is just a rhyme that we say here in the Faroes really 😄 There is something very special about seeing your parents in the role as grandparents. When I see JJ with my parents it makes me … Continue reading Omma blomma og abbi krabbi
When I came to Scotland in 2008 there was no direct route between the Faroe Islands and Scotland. Only the occasional Christmas flight home. In 2015 the faroese airline company Atlantic Airways decided to try out a new route and set up direct flights between the Faroe Islands and Edinburgh. It goes without saying that … Continue reading Faroese winter visit part 1.
