In Peterhead

Naomi and I arrived safely Thursday morning in Aberdeen and were greeted at the airport by Billy Strachan.  Other than the delay in Memphis and Naomi's fever on our over-night flight, we had fared well.  For being just 3, Naomi was a huge trooper and carried her bag when I needed her to and kept walking when she thought she could no longer.  She's my girl!

Jet-lag has been kind to us.  We both took about 1.5 nap Thursday afternoon, but then stayed up til a normal bed-time and were able to sleep until 7:30 the next morning.  Naomi HAS been waking in the middle of the night freaked out about not knowing where she is, but I'm hoping that will happen less and less.

Holly and Hannah Strachan have been making Naomi feel very welcomed.  :)  She is constantly the soul-center of attention whether they are playing dolls, ponies, dress-up, or Littlest Pet Shop.  The first evening, they even loaned her a "dressing gown", cuddled up on the couch and watched "TinkerBell".


The 3 of them are constantly playing something!

Friday we went over and saw the place we will be renting. It is lovely. Here, I'll take you on a little tour of 56 Copeman Avenue, Peterhead, Scotland.

Park at the end of the street, step through the gate, and walk up the stairs...

You will enter into the entry-way here:

The smaller bedroom immediately on your left has a full built-in closet and black-out drapes!

Across the hallway is the larger bedroom with full built-in closets and a HUGE bonus closet (with shelves in it)! ("Shelves in the closet. Happy thought indeed."-- name that reference)

Our lovely, clean and bright bathroom with shower over the tub:

Across the hallway from the bathroom is the "lounge" or living room.

Look! A photo of me in Scotland! I'm standing in the doorway of the kitchen.
(not pictured is the large pantry and the tiny fridge and slightly larger freezer. :)

And our "garden" (aka: yard):

The Strachans have already pulled out a slide (or "chute") and a see-saw for us to put in our "garden".

We have been able to web-cam with JR and Gideon every day so far.  We are getting things set up, but can't wait to be reunited with our fellas.

Nice digs! Thanks for the tour.

I love that Barbara responded to your trivia regarding the P & P quote; fitting, I think. :)
