A new year … and a new addition to our family

It has been a long time since I have written for the blog and we would first like to introduce our newest addition to our potager garden – our little girl, born in the heatwave summer of 2018 πŸ™‚

In 2019, baby in tow, we toured Scotland – from the Cairngorms, to the North Western Mountains, NC500 and John O Groats before staying in the very centre of Edinburgh on our way back home.

I’m really excited to now nestle at the kitchen table and share the memories of all of our family adventures and our ongoing garden potager project here on our website.

I have taken hundreds of photos and my notebooks are crammed with travel journals and sketches.  As always my writing will take place with my husband working opposite me, a cup of tea at the ready and four boys running around us, although this time around there will also be a tiny toddler cuddled up on my knee.

Happy 2020 everyone.  I hope you have a wonderful start to the new decade.
