When I was pregnant I knew I wanted to prepare some meals for when Piglet was born. I was anticipating late nights, times when he wouldn’t want to be put down and it would be hard to cook. When I haven’t had much sleep I don’t always want a take away, I knew I would

What a start to the month! JHogg took a trip to A&E for a dodgy shoulder. It turns out he has an impingement (rather than the dislocation we first suspected) and had to take some time off work. I took on the childcare and house work alone which was pretty tough! But we coped. Piglet

When I was pregnant I was really keen on the idea of newborn photography. I loved the gorgeous posed pictures, I knew it was something I’d love to have. The issue we had though was the cost. We had bought a new house and every penny we have was ear marked for kitchens or bathrooms.

Wedding Photos Oddhogg

Our recent stay at the Maryculter House Hotel for our anniversary had us reminiscing about our wedding. We got out our wedding album and looked through some of the pictures of the day, and I thought I would share some of them with you. These photos were all taken by our wonderful photographer, Kelly from

July – what a month it’s been! We started the month off by submitting our building warrant application for the change to the downstairs layout of the house. Unfortunately it got returned with some queries but we’re hoping we’ll have our approval through soon! We booked a trip for the end of September with the

Maryculter House Hotel is where JHogg and I got married in March last year. It is also where we had one of our first dates! Situated right on the River Dee, the hotel overlooks JHoggs golf course. It is a small hotel with only 22 rooms, and is extremely old. The rooms are all different shapes
