Spring Has Sprung.. Just!

Upon returning from 30+/40 degrees in Australia to what feels like minus 30+ degrees in Scotland I was feeling a little bit on the miserable side. But it’s hard to be miserable when the daffodils and snowdrops are in bloom!

There are still icicles.. and a lot of snow..

..but it’s the little things that make me smile. The little flashes of colour and signs of life, hopefully marking the end of winter!

It’s Early And This Girl Can’t Sleep. So…

I decided to take off on my bike for an early morning cycle round the river.

20130210-114253.jpg I seriously love this place! So beautiful. I love that all the sunshine makes you want to leap out of bed, be outside and get involved.

20130210-114534.jpg I am gonna be gutted when I have to go home again (not that I don’t love home, I do.. but right now it is just so terribly cold and February) So I plan to enjoy every second I am here!
