My week in pictures #50

Sunday, January 12

(From top left) A clutch was a late christmas present from my Grandma. Today I made winter cider cupcakes. I got my Granpa's old DSLR camera- can't wait to start practising my photography. Had a delicious lunch at chianti in falkirk yesterday. Had my first graze box in ages delivered. Selfie before going out for lunch with my grandma.
Well it has been a crazy sort of week again which has been dominated mostly by a stress headache and trying to complete my UCAS application.  It makes me feel so sick just thinking about it because of the awful time I had last year. I have finished my personal statement though so I will submit my application tomorrow hopefully. On tuesday my Grandpa passed which wasn't unexpected because he has been unwell for quite a while now. We have been trying to help Grandma and my dad went down on wednesday then we all went down yesterday again. It was nice to see her again for the first time in ages and we went out for a nice meal together. Oh another highlight of the trip was seeing the kelpies in the water at Grangemouth! They were pretty amazing (go and google it). Today has been a lazy day and I've done a little baking but not much else.

On Tuesday next week it is my Grandpas funeral and we are staying in falkirk for the night. I've never been to a funeral so I'm slightly nervous about what to expect. At least I know it won't be too emotional. Also another thing to be worried about is the two sides of my family (mum and dads) mixing for the first time... They are so so different. I've had a good week and now have a DSLR to play with so maybe the photography on my blog will improve? I do feel guilty about my olympus though- I do love that camera. Don't worry I've used it to take this weeks pictures!

Hope you've all had a good weekend too!


  1. I'm really sorry to hear about your Grandpa. Bring plenty of tissues to his funeral even if you think you won't need them xx

  2. Sorry to hear about your Granddad that must be hard.

    And good luck with your UCAS, 10 years ago this year I was working on mine, scary how quickly time goes!

  3. So sorry to hear about your Grandpa. The cakes look amazing, I absolutely love cakes! :) Good luck with your UCAS application. I have followed you on bloglovin now :) xx

  4. Sorry to hear about your Grandpa. Like they say, this too shall pass.
    Hugs x

  5. oh no, I'm so sorry to hear about your Grandpa :( When my grandad passed, even though I hadn't seen him for a long time, being at his funeral was quite emotional- lots of hugs to you!
