She boycotted a morning nap this morning so we got out to get stuff to make sugar cookies (for whenever I get the chance to make those). She feel asleep on the way back home and I successfully transferred her from the car seat to the bed. I think anyone who can accomplish that should receive a medal.
I love the delicate green iron gates around this cottage in the grounds of #KellieCastle. Also that pantile roof. Apparently roofs like these are mostly isolated to Fife and the Lothians - in the Highlands it’s all slate, and straight. No disloyalty to my lovely lochside cottage but I would definitely live here in the shadow of a baronial castle given the chance #lovefife#lovescotland

Now I can barely remember life before her and even though it's not all rainbows and butterflies, I wouldn't trade these days for anything in the world. Funny how we never know what life has in store for us and sometimes things turn out so crazy different from how we thought it to be.. But somehow everything always ends up better and you wouldn't change a thing.
