Backtrack: September, a busy month...

I'm really not entirely sure how it's November already. I think possibly because I slept a lot of October away - and now with the dark nights, frosty days and Scottish winter looming, I am absolutely wishing I could hibernate for the next few months!

As planned, (eventually) I made it back to Scotland for the beginning of September.  September was just a crazy-busy month - planning and hosting my sister's surprise hen weekend (the weekend after I got back), my sister's wedding, lots of catching up with friends and family, including some who had travelled internationally to be at the wedding........ AND then moving house at the end of the month - the day before my Mum's birthday this year (and despite my best intentions and attempts to not stress my parents out - especially after planning and hosting a wedding! -  with another house move, and my (slightly idiotic/ delusional) insistence I would to do it myself after they left, it was pretty apparent that wasn't going to work, so I was extremely grateful for ALL their help).

I think that could be considered a busy, stressful, tiring month for anyone, so I definitely crash-landed back home. I'll leave the health talk for another post.

Overall, September was a month full of celebrations and they do say a picture is worth a thousand words... So, to save about 22,000 words, here are 22 photos!

The Munro-Milligan wedding, at The Vu (near Edinburgh)

In a very kind gesture by my sister and her new husband, in lieu of favours at their wedding, they chose to make a donation to a UK Lyme Disease charity - personally I think it's a wonderful idea, generally, to consider a donation to a charity for that purpose, and it was very touching that they chose to donate to a Lyme charity because of my journey. Thanks :-)
