Yay! I am going to Scotland!

I am going to Scotland tomorrow! We are going to stay in Europe for 3 months and I will be visiting family and friends in the Netherlands, Norway and London. There are friends that I have not seen for ages, I am really looking forward to spending some quality time together. It's also a great opportunity for Euan to spend some times with his Granny and Great Granny while we are in Scotland! =) 

That's me and my lovely cousin Eve in Gardenston. She came to Scotland to see me while I was in Scotland last year during summer. Unfortunately, she only managed to stay over for a day during her visit. Since we haven't seen each other for quite a while, we ended up chatting and laughing away until dawn trying to catch up with each other's life. It's a very short visit.  As a result, we are going to make sure we will be spending as much time as possible with each other during my visit to UK this summer. Hence, our plan is, she will be visiting me in Scotland for 2 weeks and I am going to visit her in London for a month. In another word, We are going to spend 6 weeks together chatting, cooking, baking, gardening and travelling together! How does that sound? Not bad, eh?

A year of difference


These pictures were taken at the Alamo, as you can see my wee baby has grown into a cheeky wee boy in the second picture compared to the first one that was taken in April 2008. He is no longer wanting me to "wear" him for too long , but instead he loves to run around having fun. Sometime I wish he would grow up a wee bit slower. I really miss him being a  wee baby from time to time! 

We went to San Antonio with Ms. Carole(otherwise AKA my mother-in-law =))when she came over to visit in Spring 2008 and in April this year. As much as she loves the riverwalk and the Alamo, I'd always love San Antonio. Especially the Alamo, I simply love it for the fact that it played a major role in the history of texas. Although I've been there numerous time, I am still always up to a trip to the Alamo. Either wandering aimlessly in the courtyard or listening to the story of the battle of the Alamo; they both bring me equal pleasure for wanting to re-visit this special place repeatedly. =)

Chocalate chips muffin


I baked some Chocalate chips muffins for us last night. Euan loves it! He had a whole muffin for breakfast and was still asking for more! =) Yum-yum!
