five on friday

joining in with Amy's five on Friday first birthday celebrations.
Five photographs from our snowy weekend away. Not many words to go with them.

The sun peeping through the clouds at Loch Earn.

Standing stones, which were in field next to a farm. We exerted our right to roam and hopped over the fence.

A beautiful fence covered in snow.

And gorgeous soft green lichen. I love this colour. 
(But if I try and wear anything this colour I look like the living dead. Not flattering.... )

The most beautiful sky. 

I think I could photograph the sky every hour of every day and never get bored.

Happy Friday x

celebrating 20 years

J and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary last week.

I bought him red roses.


He bought me white ones.

I made a cake.  When you never throw away anything in your cutlery drawer it means you can recreate the cake decorations you made for your wedding cake. I bought this little cutter intending to make daisies, when they looked like snowflakes instead I didn't put them on the cake.... Until the night before the wedding when we suddenly had 10 inches of snow and then they seemed perfect. 

We left the children staying with friends and ran away to Scotland for the weekend. 
Travelling in a storm meant for some interesting driving, but it was completely worth it for a lovely hotel, with a log fire in our room. 
A howling gale blowing outside when you're tucked up safe and warm is a wonderful thing.

It snowed. 
I took a lot of photos.
A perfect weekend x
