My Birthday, No Snow and Winter Walks

Ahhhh half term. I needed it so much. We’ve been away in Scotland and while the holiday didn’t go totally to plan we’ve still had a lovely time. We’ve been staying in Aviemore in the Cairgorms with the intention to ski, but there just wasn’t enough snow. We found lots of lovely walks to do instead though and it was just so nice to be away. This will be a fairly brief Little Loves as I don’t have much to report after being away all week!

This week I…

Read

Snow reports on repeat! Hoping to get on the slopes but no snow fell until yesterday, which is when we were leaving. There still wasn’t enough to ski but Doris did make our journey a little more stressful than it would otherwise have been!

I also read my birthday cards on Wednesday! Tom had thoughtfully snuck presents in from my family and cards that came through the post, so it was nice to have things to open on the day even though we were away.

Made

Nothing really since we haven’t been at home. Does a picnic smuggled from the breakfast buffet and eaten at the side of a stream count?

Oh and I made friends with some ducks, briefly, until they realised I didn’t have any bread.

Watched

More Gilmore Girls. Mostly when I’m in the bath as I haven’t been able to persuade Tom that he wants to watch it too!

Wore

Not my sallopettes and ski boots as planned, but lots of layers and cosy knits for walks out in the cold.

Heard

My parents singing Happy Birthday to me on FaceTime, cute!

And lastly…

We stayed in Glasgow last night and are heading home today. My parents and sister are coming over tomorrow for a birthday dinner then on Sunday I’ll be mentally preparing myself to go back to work booo.

I hope you all have a good week. I’m linking up with the lovely Morgana at Coffee Work Sleep Repeat for this week’s #LittleLoves and am looking forward to reading about what everyone else has been loving this week too.

  1. What a wonderful birthday trip you’ve had! Sneaking food out of the breakfast buffet has got to be done, especially when you can have an al fresco breakfast like that one! xx
