Happy Friday friends and welcome to another instalment of the Friday Edit Series! This week has been an (unexpectedly) busy one. Just when I thought nothing exciting was on the cards, everything changed. Here’s what made this week a good one:

ONE// Taking Monday off to work on the Blog from home. All these years I have been working on Natbee’s during the evenings and weekends but when projects come along the way and pay the bills I try, whenever possible, to take a day off the day job and focus on the Blog. This Monday, I stayed at home and worked throughout the day with Cruzy being my loyal assistant, bringing the biscuits and turning on the kettle whenever needed, and it was the perfect start to my week 🙂

TWO// The bright, sunny days that we are experiencing right now in Aberdeen. While the rest of Scotland, and some parts of northern England, are covered with white, fluffy snow, up here in the north east we are still lucky with dry days consisting of beautiful, blue skies. The air is crisp and the temperatures are low but having all this light every day gives me the motivation to go out on long(er) dog walks and work without feeling dejected.

THREE// Aberdeen Restaurant Week and all the goodness that it entails. Being one of the ambassadors I am on the duty of reviewing one of my favourite restaurants this weekend, Howies on Chapel Street! I’ve been to Howies many times before as it has one of the best menus and interiors in town. It is also very conveniently located close to my place, so ideal to meet friends on a rather short notice on a Friday evening!

FOUR// Burn’s Night, haggis, neeps and tatties. Need I say more? 🙂

How was your week? Any weekend plans?

    The weeks has been good hasn’t it? I’ve managed to get some lovely walks at lunch time and Campus looks stunning on crisp bright days! I’m still hoping it snows a bit though ?? This weekend I have a 5k to do (I may collapse), meeting a friend for coffee and spending some quality time with the husband and 6 year old. Have a lovely weekend xx

    It’s amazing how rejuvenating it can be to take just one day off work! Even if you spent that time working on your own gig from home, the change of routine is still refreshing 🙂 // I have such a great appreciation for sun in the winter haha // Have a great weekend!

    Being able to work on your blog at home sounds so exciting! It’s always good to take a day away from work every now and then to do something we enjoy xx
