viva escotia

i hate the way i always start my posts with either "yesterday" or "today". it really is so very dull, but i can't think of another way of expressing things that have happened.
oh well, here goes.
for my auntie's 50th birthday yesterday, we drove up to scotland, about 10 miles out of edinburgh, for a surprise birthday dinner for her.
my auntie is just the funniest person ever, she's unbelievably loud & feisty, as my dad says she's the epitome of a scottish woman.
it was a really good day, i caught up with lots of family i haven't seen in ages - like my cousin who has just invited me to stay with her down in london, she lives in spitalfields & apparently there are loads of vintage markets which she said i would just adore! she's just as mad as my auntie, she's 10 years older than me but she still acts like a teenager.
it was quite dressy-uppy, so i was in a bit of a quandary as what to wear as i always tend to over do it.
after much outfit changing, i went for my grey wool dress & some pale blue tights. before we left, i put on a blue cardigan & some red shoes which i kind of forgot to take a picture of, silly me.
this dress is growing on me slightly, i got it as a present last christmas from the mother & really didn't think much of it but now i pretty much adore it! i think it's the 40s kind of feel to it.
