What’s been happening in March?
March is always such a fun month – it’s my birthday month!
It has been such a busy month, especially in the last couple of weeks. I enjoyed my usual monthly tapas night, a surprise birthday dinner date with a friend and welcomed my parents back after their 3 week trip in Asia in the first two weeks of March. My parents absolutely adored their trip and are thinking of returning to Asia next year, this time to China. I think it’s safe to say I get my love of travel from them!
Thomas returned from a month working in South Africa two days before my birthday. Perfect timing! We spent my actual birthday at home and visited my parents for a family dinner that evening. The next day Thomas whisked me away to beautiful Cameron House Hotel at Loch Lomond as my birthday gift.
The next day Thomas whisked me away to beautiful Cameron House Hotel at Loch Lomond as my birthday gift. We spent time in the spa, went for walks around the loch and ate some really amazing food. Stay tuned for a blog post on this coming next week.
After Cameron House we had a private dining experience booked at 29 in Glasgow’s Merchant City. We had our own lovely room for a private dinner for 8 people and it was fabulous. The food was amazing and the service was great. We’ll definitely be doing that again.
Then, Scotland enjoyed some RIDICULOUSLY summery weather at the end of the month. We made the most of it and made sure to have afternoon drinks in the sunshine and get out and about for plenty of walks.
What I read in March…
I started March off by reading My Husband’s Wife by Jane Corry, as I’d been recommended it by so many people. I wasn’t disappointed. This was an easy read, but definitely a page turner. It was intriguing from the very start and I raced through it really quickly.
Next was The Breakdown by B A Paris, a book I started and finished in less than 24 hours. I couldn’t put it down! It’s a great, twisted storyline and is a really easy read. It would be the perfect holiday read if anyone is looking for holiday book recommendations.
Then I moved onto Fire in The Blood by Ed James. This was the third Ed James novel I’ve read since the start of 2017 and I do enjoy them. They’re police procedural type books that are set in Scotland and are nice, easy books to read before bed.

What’s happening in April?
April looks like it could be another busy month with plenty going on. Things in the calendar already include a family party, a few meals out with friends and (hopefully) getting our back garden in shape. Some of you might remember Thomas and I bought our first home together at the end of last year and now is the time to start getting our garden into shape for the summer. Is it wrong that I’m actually so excited about gardening?!
