This was my house in Scotland 3 years ago

Something to share of my life in Scotland with my husband who was born and raised in England. Life is harder and I will say it takes longer to get ahead in the UK. My husband had a very good job as an engineer but lived with a coal fire for twelve years. That was difficult with some rooms cold all the time you always felt things just werent right. Came home to appreciate things here with eyes that saw all differently. Jobs are tight as well as money. I saw people very conservative and less apt to spend as easily in the UK. Many differences but to describe Scotland would be the land of lovliness. I miss my house but I dont miss being as poor as I was. A shame really look at that house I do miss it! My house was in a wee villiage named Tarves outside of Aberdeen.


hello Janet, I found you through Andrew. I am Scottish (half) and my maiden name was Baldrige (we changed to Baldridge), with my grandmother's side Connell. We are very proud to be Scottish...I imagine you are equally proud to be Norwegian, a lovely group of people! Nice to meet you. Fascinating entries, you have. I cannot wait to see your door, as I LOVE fairies!


What a pretty house! But being cold? I couldn't bear it! I get hives too. If I eat anything with food coloring I swell up horribly. A good allergist can fix you right up, that and tons of antihistamines! Thanks for the comment!


Gorgeous - I did postgraduate work at the University of Sussex in the 90s. I lived in Brighton for 2 years. I agree with everything you said, but I do still miss being there. Of course, I was a student and wasn't worried about how to support a family back then...
