New Job

It's been all quiet on the blogging and website front lately, I've had a busy couple of months and have been all over the place. I quit the day job and got another one so have been away training for the new role and am pleased to report that it is all going well so far. My brain has been scrambled with all the new information to take in but I know it will all come together soon enough. I have spent all day today at work re-merchandising the shop floor and eyeing up lots of lovely clothes and chunky knits so I can pretty much spend all of my first pay cheque on them! The perks of working in a clothes shop :)

Holiday and Hen

Last week, well just over a week ago now I worked my last day in the day job (ever), and set off to the Highlands for a weeks worth of R&R with Danny but first was the madness of my sister's hen weekend. I have been trying to organise this alongside her other Bridesmaid Karen for what seems like ages now but we did a great job even if I do say so myself!

We booked the most amazing house in Nethy Bridge called Mountain Bear Lodge, a huge log cabin originating from Canada before being dismantled and then re-built in Speyside. If you click the link above you can see all the photos of the lodge and just how amazing it looks. I made lots and lots of goodies for the occasion but didn't really remember to take many photos but i will post some of the ones i have shortly.
The lodge can sleep up to 16 people, has a 10 person hot tub in the garden overlooking the Cairngorms, a sauna, jacuzzi, log fire and a Grillkota (BBQ hut) in the garden. Danny and I were SO lucky and SO spoilt to be able to spend the rest of the week here alone - bliss. I wish I was back there relaxing but it was off to start a new day job today I'm afraid.
