We are currently enjoying a lovely long (and rather wet) family weekend in Scotland with Nathans family. We arrived on Thursday after several stops on the way up, and whilst the weather has been rather wet and windy, we were blessed yesterday with enough sunshine to enjoy a day at the beach – it was so lovely and bursting with beauty!
This week has been great for seeing our friends and looking forward to this long bank holiday weekend with family in Scotland. We have done loads together and can hardly believe that in just over a week we will back to school! It makes me a little sad to be entering a new chapter when we are so very much enjoying these Summer adventures together!
This week I am grateful for open fires in this spectacular house we are staying in – they are both relaxing and a big source of warmth for us on an evening! I am grateful for luxury accomodation we can all stay in together too and just generally for a family holiday with all of our great family in such a cool location.
I am grateful for friends and the lovely days out together this week. And I am grateful for the yummy cookies at LIDL bakery – they have always been a firm favourite of mine and after a whole week of no sugar, I have enjoyed a couple this weekend as a holiday treat!
This week I succeeded at losing 3lb of the 10 or so I have slowly piled on! The aforementioned cookies may jeopardize that progress, but for now I shall celebrate this small accomplishment!
We also succeeded at making it to Scotland in okay time with little drama – a fine achievement for anyone with 3 kids in tow!
Found Beauty In
This week again has been one of great beauty. My soul has felt joy to walk through the pretty countryside around our house in East Yorkshire with our friends, and to see Alice and Megan having so many moments of play and sisterhood!! I have loved seeing my children laughing and playing with cousins and schoolmates and, finally, I have loved the beautiful decor of this house where we are staying and the views and coastlines that surround us!
Scotland is so beautiful and I am thankful to be here together… It is always a lot of fun when are all together as a ginormous family.
