Katherine  Books, knitting, craft, food, gardens, home education and adventures with my little family. Fife (via Orkney and Yorkshire)

Yes, finally captured the RSS Discovery and @vadundee on a day with bright blue skies. Normally we are rushing for the train but today we had more time so said hello to the penguins outside Discovery Point and I got a few snaps. #vandadundee #vanda #vandamuseum #rssdiscovery #dundee #dundeescovery #sunnydundee #bluesky #instasky #scotland #scotspirit #oldandnew #igersdundee #mytinyatlas

Lovely view of the castle up here although I suspect the roof garden looks better in summer. I had never been up here as I thought it was part of the restaurant and not for people to traipse through to get photos. #edinburgh #edinburghcastle #nationalmuseumofscotland #roofterrace #roofgarden #view #instaview #instacity #scotland #scotspirit #fromwhereistand #igersedinburgh #thisisedinburgh

Bit quieter than our last visit! We again made the most of the Fife fiver train ticket to spend a few hours at the National Museum of Scotland. We sent hot air balloons up, dressed up as Tudors, powered up a radio and watched a film about the universe. Still plenty of rooms left that we didn’t get round for another visit. #nationalmuseumofscotland #edinburgh #museum #igersedinburgh #thisisedinburgh #scotland #scotspirit

For #worldbookday, @moominofficial would like to know what Tove Jansson's creations mean to us. Well, quite a lot in our family, we had this extract from Who Will Comfort Toffle? at our wedding, as well as quoting Moomintroll as we only want to live in peace, plant potatoes and dream. My husband and I really enjoyed the Moomins as children and have been collecting the latest editions of the Moomin books over the past ten years or so. What do you love about the Moomins? #mytove #moomins #tovejansson #whowillcomforttoffle #books #bookstagram #moomin #booklover #weddingreading

I spent quite a while in @waterstones_edi yesterday, so many beautiful books. Was excited to have a nose through Ottoline and the Purple Fox by @chris_riddell, this is the only Ottoline book our library service doesn’t have but hopefully they’ll get it when it comes out in paperback. The 6 year old loves the series, and so do his parents! I came away with some activity books and a birthday present. #shelfie #kidlitshelfie #waterstones #books #bookstagram #kidsbookstagram #raisingareader #bookshop #booklover #shopping #edinburgh

Happiness is having a drawer of garments you made yourself. I’ll reveal the yellow one soon. #knitting #knitter #knittersofinstagram #clothes #imadethis #imadeitmyself #jumper #cardigan #making #makeyourown #yarn #craft

I visited the farmer’s market for the first time in nearly 7 years (not sure I’ve been since we moved to Fife), I think I had more disposable income when we were regulars here! Lots of lovely stalls but all I bought were some buttons (regret not having a hot chocolate shot though). I would have loved to have bought one of these lovely spring bouquets but I fear it wouldn’t have been looking so pretty by the time I got it home. #edinburghfarmersmarket #farmersmarket #flowers #springflowers #bouquet #instablooms #seasonalflowers #locallygrown #edinburgh #igersedinburgh #thisisedinburgh #spring

Had a lovely couple of hours wandering around Edinburgh whilst my husband and the 6 year old went to the zoo. I lived and worked in and around Edinburgh’s West End for several years, lovely to stroll around again. #edinburgh #igersedinburgh #edinburghwestend #instacity #newtown #exploring #terracehouse #bluesky

Wow, I loved Tin Man by @sarahwinman! Such a beautiful book about love and loss. One of her earlier books, When God Was A Rabbit is one of my favourite books, highly recommend it! Loved seeing that @thebookfamilyrogerson has also just read this book too, and posted a very summery photo of it! #tin man #sarahwinman #book #instabook #bookstagram #goodreads #booklover #librarybook #lovelibraries #librariesmatter

Rhubarb crumble for dessert anyone? Tastes so much nicer when you’ve grown the rhubarb yourself. #rhubarb #fruit #gardener #gardenersofinstagram #novicegardener #igrewitmyself #igrewit #growyourown #inmygarden #making #spring #sustainablefood #eatlocal

Hiding painted stones (well, wax crayon melted on to hot stones) in our local community orchard. We found one a few weeks ago that the 6 year old wanted to keep so I thought we should give some back. Have you got involved in hiding painted stones where you live? #orchard #communityorchard #nature #sunshine #spring #instakids #motherhoodalive #letthembelittle #littlefamiliesofig #homeeducation #homeeducationuk #homeed #homeeducator #homeeducationlookslikethis #fife #lovefife #scotland #fifestagrammers

Took the 6 year old into Edinburgh today, thanks to a special offer on the trains it is currently costing us half of what it normally does so going to totally milk this. We met some other home educating families at the city farm but before that I showed him where my husband and I used to live, in a basement flat on this block. He said it was a lot nicer than he was expecting 😂 and had a great time in the park. I felt quite nostalgic being here, we lived there for nearly 4 years and got engaged and married in that time. #edinburgh #shandon #harrisonpark #park #igersedinburgh #thisisedinburgh #scotland #tenement #letthembelittle
