Scotland calling!!!!


We are here!!! LOL! Well we have finally arrived and its as beautiful as we had hoped! Our new home is lovely and the garden is heaven! It backs onto woodland and fields and is so peaceful.
We managed to buy a car the first day we arrived and are managing to explore our new surroundings. As our belongings do not arrive until tomorrow we have spent the day at a beautiful woodland park in Carrbridge. It had tons of red squirrels, a treetop trail and a fantastic climbing area that my kids loved!
It feels like home already but I am missing my friends in Gibraltar so much! I want to thank EVERYONE that has either left messages on here or my e-mail. Its been lovely hearing from you all.
To the one person who left a comment demanding to know why as I leave comments on her blog and she has added me as a favourite on hers...why have I not added her onto mine yet? I can only apologise...how rude of me!!! That's my wrists well and truly slapped! I would like to point out that there are blogs on my favourites list that do not mention my blog...and I would never dream of demanding them to add me!! LOL!
Well that's me for now...I am so excited as my craft stash arrives tomorrow...YIPEE...thanks so much for visiting especially as things are so chaotic this end!!!!
Oh and the card is the one I made for Gill before I left...the ribbon is self adhesive and is by Queen&Co and is so lush!!!

Hi Emma

What a lovely blog,it sounds like the move has gone well so far.
Did my package arrive in time, I do hope so or is it still chasing you around.
I hope that you enjoy your new life in scotland, my dad was stationed there in the army many years ago.

Happy Crafting
Lisa
