4 weeks post stroke .... it's been a journey and continues to be. Ups and downs physically and emotionally. We have gone through feelings and emotions of being frightened, helpless, lucky to still be here, stressed, anxious, optimistic, exhausted, proud, in denial, distressed, confident, grateful, not liking ourselves, eager, depressed, determined, angry (alot), relieved, understood, guilty, motivated, hopeful, loved, frustrated (alot), inspired, felt lost and overwhelmed. As the physio said to Greig he has suffered the biggest stroke he could have and survived so life has changed yet we are so relieved he is still here. There is still a mammoth journey ahead and neither of us knows what the end of it looks like nor when that will be, but we persevere with the love we have for each other, the love we have received from all our family and all of you our friends so thank you for being there for us both, it truly truly means alot to us both. #stroke#strokesurvivor
Here's a service we offer but don't often share. We have quite a few customers that sell training equipment, clothing bags etc. But they need them branded in order to do this. We can do two things here to help you 1: we can source the product you want to sell, brand it and bag it giving you a product ready to sell 2: we can brand a product you supply and give it back for you to package and sell the way you choose Whatever you decide we are here to help make your job easier.
Hi I am Gill and I am so excited to be introducing my business, @octotots! Octotots is a baby and pre-school swim school that teaches parents how to teach their children to swim. Our instructors are amongst the highest qualified in the industry (important to parents!) but we are also a little bit crazy and LOVE to have fun in the pool (important to kids!). Our lessons combine our knowledge of babies and children, with our knowledge of swimming and our passion for fun and the result is fantastic lessons for everyone, teaching a life skill and allowing some really important bonding time for parents and children. Octotots classes run across Edinburgh, the Lothians and FIFE! We are adding new pools all the time. In Fife we work with Fife Sport and Leisure Trust to deliver classes across their sites. We have lessons running 7 days a week and you can join our programme at any time - you don’t need to have started our baby programme to join our toddler programme. The inspiration behind every aspect of Octotots is children. I became self-employed and started teaching swimming to allow me to build a flexible working life around my own 3 children. All our instructors are parents and know exactly how it feels to be in the pool with a new born baby or a toddler in full meltdown. As a team, we build all our policies around what is important to us as parents - catch ups when you can’t attend class, flexible payments, class changes when needed. Flexibility and the knowledge that nothing in life is predictable when you have a baby or toddler. I hope you enjoy our stories and please feel free to get in touch any time with questions or queries, thanks Gill. #octotots#fifeforkids#fifelife#instagramtakeover
I’ve been testing the strength of this bag for the past few weeks and I can tell you that it’s super strong, it’s carried groceries, general kid stuff and even a dog 🐶. I’ve finished cutting them today and there will be 5 available in this fabric. More fabrics will follow but they will all be limited to what we can find, making them all quite unique. I’m hoping to have them listed in the shop tomorrow ♡♡

I’ve noticed recently that a lot of my newer prints focus on the comfort of home. I feel very lucky to have found a house that, for my family, is perfect. Not too big, not too small, just perfect. I honestly don’t want to live anywhere else but here. When we first went to view it, the man showing us around led us to a window and pointed out across the view. ‘Do you know Gullane beach?’ he said. ‘You can see it, just over there across the water’. I turned to my husband and gave a smile. We both knew we’d just found our new home. Only two years earlier on a beautiful October afternoon, while eating a poke of chips, he’d got down on one knee and ask me to be his wife. Where? Gullane beach of course ☺️
Who else is loving today’s rainy autumnal weather? We got soaked and muddy with the dog and I cleared my head too.. so maybe I’m a grumpy pants in today’s Instagram stories, but here is some joy .. there’s loads of soap back in stock, so you can fill yer boots! 🌱🍂
Morning ladies...it's time for an exciting announcement! I'm working on a collaboration with a national charity called Beauty Bank @thebeautybanks They have been set up to help people living in poverty get access to personal care and hygiene products. They have Beauty Bankers in Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh but not Fife...until now! I've agreed to be their Fife Beauty Banker! Why? Because being clean is a basic human right, not a luxury. So how do we help? I'm looking for volunteers. I'd like to set up 5 collection points initially in local businesses, called Public Beauty Spots. Then we promote these collection points to clients/customers/public as places with a Beauty Bank box where they can donate toiletries. Once the box is full, I organise to have it collected and it's redistributed to local charities. Do you have a premises locally and want to help? If you do, drop me your email address below and I will send over full details #beautybanks#thebeautyisingiving#makingadifference#queensofbusiness#queensofkindness#endperiodpoverty#povertyinscotland#hygienebanks

Snuggled up in front of the fire, eating second day aubergine and puy lentil stew ( minus the lentils, but green split pea as a substitute!) with some Greek yoghurt and a squirt of sriracha sauce. #happydaysandhappyevenings
