Current Favourites #2

It’s current favourites time! I’ve finally moved into our new flat in Edinburgh and things are beginning to feel a bit more settled. My commute is a lot longer, but the sea is 15 minutes walk away, which more than makes up for it. Also, bus time = reading time, which should hopefully help me […]

Five Happy happenings 23

It’s been a busy few weeks in the Mouse House as I got a new job in Edinburgh and had four weeks to find somewhere to live, hand over my old job, and prepare to move to a different city (and country). It’s now Sunday afternoon, Mr Mouse has just gone back to Durham for […]

5 happy happenings #21

Autumn makes me so happy. Sometimes it seems that I’m this time of year’s version of Buddy the Elf – Autumn’s biggest cheerleader. I love the changing leaves, the cooler temperatures, the fact that it’s my birthday in October, and the abundance of hot chocolate. It’s also the time of year that work quietens down for […]

Five happy happenings #20

Soooo, it’s been a while since one of these happy posts. My bad. In my defence, work has been super busy and both Mr Mouse and I have succumbed to a couple of particularly rubbish bugs which have left us fairly drained. Still, it’s October (my favourite month, like about 92% of all bloggers), the […]
