I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

We're Back!!!!

Hi,

Got back home today after a lovely week away. Took us 6.5 hours to get from Kinross back home to the Midlands (in vile weather too!) but we had a fantastic time! We had a mad week!
  • Sunday - Stirling Castle
  • Monday - St Andrews - Castle, Cathedral and Aquarium
  • Tuesday - Kinross and Lissern Pottery
  • Wednesday - Edinburgh - To castle and shopping in City!
  • Thursday - Crieff to Caithness Glass and Perth (shopping again!!!)

Stirling and Edinburgh Castles were fab - we had been to both before but 14 years ago and they had changed a fair bit. They now have audio tours with headsets that can give you a "virtual tour guide" to take at your own speed! Would highly recommend them all.

Below is a pic of Woodbine Cottage where we stayed.



This is pic of Paul, and kids Richard and Emma at Stirling Castle.





This is pic of me and Paul at St Andrews Castle.



This is pic of memorial Church in the grounds of Edinburgh Castle.





Have really missed my craft (and didn't find any craft shops either!) so will be getting back into my challenges!
