When the nursery Hannah attends sent out information regarding planned activities for August I was quite excited they would be having a fancy dress day on one of the days she attends! The initial excitement soon changed to apprehension as I tried to decide what on earth she could wear! So after much searching (and time wasting!) on Pinterest I came up with the idea of Little Red Riding Hood.

I still wasn’t sure how I was going to pull this off but had a few ideas in mind……..

Alter a red gingham school dress to fit….

Make a red cape and a white apron…..

Find a small basket….

Sounds simple enough, right!?!

She is more precious than rubies. Proverbs 3:15 

Where does time go! Hannah was christened exactly a year ago at 2 months old, it really doesn’t seem that long ago! As I was looking back over the photos I thought I would write a wee blog and share some photos.


was baptised on Sunday 16th August 2015 at Holy Trinity Church, Glencraig.

There is nothing better than the fresh sweet cherries available at this time of year. I remember trying fresh cherries as a child on holiday in France, in the days when they would never have been seen in supermarkets here! They are generally a more expensive option but I can’t help but add a punnet or two to my shopping basket.




I also grabbed the Tesco free magazine on my way out and after spotting the cherries on the front cover I had a read with a quick cuppa and it inspired me to try out a few recipes. These are all very simple and easy to put together – just the way I need recipes at the minute, quick and tasty!

Today we have been together for 2000 days!! And what an adventure it’s been!

I know this is a totally random fact but I figured it out a while ago and then forgot about it…… so all of a sudden the day is here! Why? I hear you ask……

Well, when we were trying to choose a wedding date, we knew we wanted a winter wedding in 2013 but couldn’t pick a date of any significance so I tried to come up with ideas and we discovered that on Wednesday 13th November 2013 it would be 1000 days from our first date, so the wedding date was set!

So I thought it would be significant to figure out when we would hit 2000 days! It doesn’t sound very long really, but its

5 years, 5 months and 23 days!

Or 48,000 hours!
