Howdy! How have your weeks’ been? Mine has been good. Back to work Friday but I had to head in on Wednesday for a yearly health and safety/first aid refresher day. I just so happened to be nominated to drive the fire engine this time. This was the third time that I had driven the tender, and it’s as old as me and the brakes are pretty crap.
The guys just so happened to decide to test out the hydrant that’s right next to our fire pond.
Guys. I nearly crashed a fire engine into a pond.
I mean…luckily I didn’t! But it was close! The brakes are so bad, they just wouldn’t work and at the last minute…success! No fishing the fire tender out of a pond!
Other than that, it’s been a pretty normal week 🙂
Wowee, this week has seemed to have flown by! And I think I’ve spent most of it sorting out stuff for going to Ibiza next month (such as going into Boots to buy moisturiser, seeing that there’s a huge sale on sunscreen, panicking because you have no sunscreen, then literally buying half of the sunscreen because you don’t know what you need, even though you’re only away for four days….)
But anyway! I think I’m sorted. Hopefully, I’m sorted, because I’m back to work Friday and won’t really get another chance before my holidays – where I’m spending my 25th!! So excited! I might actually get to experience summer this year (which Scotland has most definitely not had…)
I spent the weekend at my friend Leanne’s (who is also coming to Ibiza with me) and yesterday we went to visit Huntly Castle. It is absolutely gorgeous (definitely in my top 10. Which I should probably make a list of, just for something to post…). I must admit, I squeaked when we saw the dungeon because I wasn’t expecting the mannequins and it was kinda dark and…yeah. Thankfully, there was no one else around except Leanne, so I didn’t make that much of a fool of myself!
- I would love to experience the Venice Carnival, but my apprentice wages won’t let me afford it. If you could donate even a tiny amount, I would be very grateful!

Hi everyone! Have you had a good week? Mine has been interesting. My brother’s girlfriend almost had her baby the other day – I was almost an auntie! It’s due any day now! Excited to have a baby in the family again 🙂
Also, I don’t know how to word this without sounding needy (I’ve never done anything like this before…) but I was hoping to go to Venice at the end of January to experience the Carnival. I’ve wanted to do this for years!. But I’ve never had the chance because of work, or school, or what have you. This year (next year?) I’m actually on my time off so I could make it! But with my apprentice wages, I can’t really afford it. I’ve set up a GoFundMe page and, if you even donated 10p, I would be really grateful! I’ve added the link below 🙂
Guess what? No news (nothing new there….I’ve been working all week, so I’m just chilling on my weekend off). I have a link, though. And I’m thinking about spending a couple weeks interrailing through Italy next year. If anyone has any tips, I’d be grateful 🙂
Not been up to much this week. One of my friends moved into her new house, so I was helping out with that. And, right at this very moment, I’m in the middle of baking blueberry macarons. They’re turning out okay…ish. They’re not the prettiest but they taste nice!
Also! I’m going to Ibiza in October with a couple of friends! I’m gonna be spending my 25th in Ibiza! Get in!!
