    Lovely photos – Happy Birthday to James – and good luck with your course! So nice to have time “away.”
    Folks need it to recharge.

    Oh Edinburgh! I’ve never been to Scotland but i already know I would love it there! The first two pics are so pretty! I really have to come and visit one day! :)

    There’s a giveaway at my blog at the moment.
    Come and join it if you like headbands! :)

      You really should! I hadn’t visited Scotland much before this year but there’s such a lovely atmosphere here, and Edinburgh is just beautiful.

    These photos are so incredible! I would love to visit Scotland! My family has Scottish heritage, my grandfather took his social group on a trip through Scotland and Ireland when I was a kid… I’ve really wanted to go ever since. Sounds so funny, but I’m pretty sure they brought us back some soap (probably even hotel soap haha), but it was the greatest soap in all the world. ;) What all have you been watching on Netflix? My husband and I tend to watch a lot of shows together, it’s kind of a fun at home activity. We’re working our way through Buffy (I see you mentioned Angel, haven’t started that yet) on Netflix. I kind of want to watch The Witches of Eastwick… not even sure if it’s had good reviews. On DVD we are always watching Gilmore Girls, started Boy Meets World and finished a few other things. Other odds and ends too, always so many recommendations from people. We also watch a slew of things on TV from time to time. We love TVD, The Originals, Reign.. etc. :)

      You should definitely visit! The weather isn’t great but I love it here. I’ve been watching a lot of Breaking Bad and Orange is the New Black on Netflix, I’ve really gotten into tv. I think I prefer it to films at the moment! Buffy is the best! I sometimes wish it was real, I think Willow and I would be good friends :)

        I think I tend to prefer weather that most people don’t.. haha. TV is so nice because it can develop characters and relationships in a way that movies can’t because of limited time. I started watching The Witches of East End *whoops typo above* over the weekend and finished the 1 season that’s out. It’s pretty fun. I love willow she is so sweet. :)

    I actually think these photos are beautiful if that’s any consolation to losing the other ones? This is such a lovely post Jess, glad you and James are making the most of your time together. I love Edinburgh, I might actually be coming up to visit in like October maybe we could hang out?! I love having TV in the background when I’m sewing also. Your shop is looking fab by the way!

    Totally best of luck ever for the course! I’m sure you will thrive and it will be amazing :) I can’t wait to hear about how it goes for you!

    All my love XXXX

      Thank you! That definitely does make me feel better :) I would love to hang out in October! I have a pink sofa bed too if you wanted to stay, and by then I should know all the fun bars etc :) You’re such a sweetie, that means a lot. I actually start tomorrow so I hope I make friends xxxx

    The photos are beautiful. Breaking bad is amazing, by far the best TV show in the world!

    Good luck for next week, it’s going to be amazing! I also moved to Edinburg a few weeks ago, it’s so exciting to be in a new country, getting the chance to start a new life in a way :D

      Thanks Nol! Oh wow, I might see you around :) Are you working at the moment?

  8. Nol

    Yes, it would actually be amazing to bump into each other unexpectedly! I’m not working until about mid October, I’m enjoying a prolonged holiday ^_^ how is freshers’ week? I’m in the Netherlands for a couple of weeks, but I’d love to meet when I’m back if that sounds good to you :) let’s keep in touch! xx
