My First Tag!

Oh my goodness, my first tag! Thank you to Floss for thinking of's so nice of you to include a "newbie"!

Okay, well here goes. I've included some photos of The Witchery in Edinburgh where my husband and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary last year. A truly exceptional place!

What is your current obsession? Blogging!

What are you wearing today? Cream jeans, red short sleeved shirt with cream polka dots and brown peep toe heels.

What's for dinner? Sorry, we cheated tonight and ate out (it was my 2 little boys football practice and it just made my life easier!!), so lots of different things!!
What's the last thing you bought? Oh, that's a secret as it was something to include in my Sleepover Swap over at A Thrifty Mrs

Three styling tips that work for you:

Hellllllloooooo! Are you still there???? That was a bit of a marathon! Okay, so here are the rules to this tag:
Respond and rework – answer the questions on your own blog
Replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention.
Add one more question of your own.
Tag eight others.
I tag.....

Hi Alexandra, interesting reading those snippets of You, I have to say I will probably have a few just like your answers. I would not want to meet Brown though!
I would love to travel upto Scotland, maybe this Autumn, I must make a note of your favourite place.

Oh, well done! It is quite a marathon, isn't it? I really enjoyed learning more about you, so thanks for accepting the tag. My sister and her new husband spent their wedding night at the Witchery last August!
