On our way up to the village

Hi lovelies! Looking at these pictures I can’t believe it’s not even been a week since we came back from Nice. It feels way longer! I miss it loads. These photos were taken in the beautiful medieval town Haut-de-Cagnes, found just above Cagnes-sur-Mer (not far at all from Nice and a perfect day trip). This village is situated on a hill, we walked up but there is a little bus you can get to the top too if you find it too hot to walk up. Stubborn as I am, I thought we should walk haha. I’m glad I packed a water bottle just before we left, we needed it!

I love strolling around there amongst the colourful houses, it feels like time has stopped in this town. It’s like a bubble of history. A fun fact is the weekend we were there they were hosting the World Championships in boule! At the top of the village there is a castle with a square with a couple of restaurants. We walked around just sightseeing. The reason why we were there was we were invited to some friends of my family for lunch. They have a stunning house in this village. It looks like a French dream (I’m so sad I forgot to take photos of it) and in their garden they grow everything from oranges and lemons to grapes. They’re also planning to start growing their own vegetables. Goals! One day I’d love to do the same. It was such a lovely afternoon with loads of delicious food and laughter. We sat there for hours in the sun and completely lost track of time!

Back to reality here in Glasgow, it’s Friday! I survived my first week at work. Not the easiest week, I think I’m having some post holiday blues. I find it really tough with the weather here in Glasgow and does get me down. Especially when I’ve gotten used to the warmth. I know I’ll get into the swing of things and normal life soon so I’m just planning loads of fun things to look forward to. Like brunch this weekend with Faye and next Sunday Jamie and I are having loads of our friends over for brunch as my birthday celebration. I’m really looking forward to that. Yesterday evening Jamie and I booked tickets to see the Mamma Mia musical when it’s up here in December. We both LOVE the Mamma Mia film so we can’t wait to go!

Speak soon lovelies,
