In parliament

I have no good reason as to why ive been away from blog land for over 2 months! Im trying to think back and recall anything particularly blog-worthy but there's nothing, life has just been really busy!

In May we spent a week on the beautiful isle of Arran. We can see across to Arran from where we live and its only a 30min car ride then an hours boat crossing but we've never been, despite having wanted to for years. It didnt disappoint! Beautiful scenery, idyllic beaches, tranquil little villages. We loved it and will definitely go back. We will climb Goatfell one day when the boys are old enough to walk that far!

This month i went back to work having been off now on 'maternity leave' for 2 years. This week (my 2nd week in the job) i got to down to London and amongst other meetings, attend a reception in the House of Commons!!! I've stood outside the Houses of Parliament loads of times and had the usual tourist photos under Big Ben etc but i have never been inside on 'official business.' I was pretty awestruck!

Wooa - inside Parliament! How important are you! I did visit when I was training to be a teacher and remember being warned not to 'sit' in the chamber. Hope your return to work goes well. Irene xxx

I hope all goes well with your return to work. It sounds like it's an interesting job.
I'm glad you had the chance to have a holiday together before your return.

The island looks lovely, funny how we can be so close to things sometimes but never get around to actually visiting them. Hope your return to work is going smoothly and you are enjoying what you do.
