I've been dreadful at blogging recently, and I do mean to get better at it, as I have so much to tell you!
In the meantime though, I have a new recipe for you for delicious oatcakes. If you want to jazz them up a little, you could add cracked black peppercorns or grated cheese, but they are excellent just as they are.

So, what's the one thing you really need when you're trying to organise a wedding? Why, your landlords telling you they'd like to sell your house of course!
To be fair, we've always known that the landlords wanted to sell the house at some point, it's just bad timing. They have said that they want to put it on the market in May, and we're getting married in June.
We had a week of looking at houses until we found the perfect one, so we've struck a deal and we're moving at the end of the month. Joy. Actually, I'm looking forward to living in the new house, and actually being able to park right outside my house, but I cannot face packing up the house again, just to unpack it again five minutes later! Moving is a hassle.
They say that the three most stressful things in life are moving house, getting married and getting divorced - two out of three will do us just fine!
We've done quite well in the last week with the wedding organisation, despite looking for houses at the same time. We have the registry office booked, we now have a venue booked for the reception and have agreed the menu, I've bought Isla's bridesmaid dress, and my maid of honour has bought her dress too. I also have my wedding shoes, but no dress as yet! Still trying to decide on the one that I want. The invitations are all made and ready to be sent out. We're getting there, we just have to finalise the guest list, as only some people can come to the ceremony as only 35 people can fit in the registry office! It's difficult!
Only a few things left to get sorted, in amongst packing the house, oh and going to work every day too. Nothing's easy!

We've had an awesome day today. Lovely lie in, followed by breakfast bought by Frazer. Isla had pain au chocolat, Frazer had croissant and jam and I had a cinnamon danish pastry. Lovely!
We went all the way across to Airdrie to go to a bowling alley, because the ones in Edinburgh are ridiculously expensive. It's a good couple of years since we've been bowling. Frazer's really good - he used to play in a league when he lived in Edinburgh, and was meant to when we moved to Peebles, but the last couple of years his back has gone right at the beginning of the season and he's missed out. Isla and I are pretty rubbish, but we do manage to hit the pins most of the time. I even got a strike today - I was ridiculously pleased with myself!
We did a few bits of shopping in Airdrie afterwards, and then came home via Ratho for a carvery. It's a Crown Carvery in Ratho, and it used to be very good, but it seems to have gone downhill a little. The other one we go to is a Toby Carvery in Liberton in Edinburgh that used to be called the Balm Well. It's brilliant, and the quality of the food is excellent.
It's 11.30 now and we've only just sat down. We got in and put the shopping away, then decided to try to dismantly the falling apart armchair in the kitchen. We didn't get very far, so we're going to get it into the boot of the car tomorrow, hold the boot lid down with bungees and drop it at the tip tomorrow morning. The dog was upset because it's his armchair!
Off to a car boot tomorrow - probably will be full of rubbish, but alŵays worth a mooch.
