It's just gorgeous - between the penguins colonies, beautiful whitestone and knick-knack shops I am in heaven whenever I visit.
I was there mid June for work and took this photo.
And no, I haven't somehow miraculously got my hands on a polaroid camera. I've been playing with Polardroid - you drag and drop your photos to it and it turns them into a polaroid complete with polaroid quality! Cool huh? (

What else is new? Hmmm, I finally got round to cutting some flowers from the bush in our garden and putting them in wee glasses on the fireplace. They look gorgeous - haven't got the photos of the camera yet but will try and post it soon.

It's been chilly as here. Winter well and truly but the good news is that winter solstice has passed so the nights should be drawing out.
Not long now until we spend some time in the UK and Ireland with friends and family. I can't believe it's July already.
And it's less than 4 months until we get married. Wow - so much to do before then. We are almost sorted with rings and I am hoping to sort out my wedding dress this week. That's most of the big things at least half sorted. I am sure it will all come together in the end.

And I've been doing lots of baking: muffins, biscuits, cheesy crumbles and fairy cakes - all rather yummy I do have to say. It means that we know what ingredients are going into what we're eating and also helps warm up the house when it's chilly!

Be back with more photos soon.
