#BEDN | Nostalgia

Hey everyone :)

Hope you are all well and have had a great week! This should have gone up around Thursday but I've been behind in my #BEDN posts as work is busy at the moment and well you know ... life!

This topic for this post is: Nostalgia - now I was trying to think of what to write for this - then I thought it would be a great idea to find 3 pictures from a few years ago and reminisce about them.

When I was at university I lived in student accommodation and one thing I had always wanted was a kitten. I don't know why I just wanted one ... and me being naive and stupid bought one ... actually I bought two ... because I didn't want to leave one of them on their own. They were cute and cuddly and full of character. I had them for about 2 months and then we had inspections of our rooms and I had to sell them on to someone else - broke my heart but I had to do it.

Before I left for university and while I was at university and when I left university I worked at the Cally Palace Hotel - a five star hotel in Gatehouse of Fleet (my hometown) and it was a great job - so many warm and welcoming people. I was trained by my two best friends Ruth and Rachel (who already worked there). On certain days (I think this was Christmas Day or New Years Day) we dressed up fancy dress. Both Ruth and myself were cats! If I remember correctly Rachel (not pictured) was Sandy from Greece.

I also worked at Cream o Galloway and had lots of fun there. They have a visitor attraction centre which has lots of fun things for kids. There is also the ice cream factory for which they are well known for as there ice cream is everywhere. They also do tours round the farm and the factory. There is also a restaurant/cafe too. I worked mostly in the kitchen and sometimes out front doing the coffee/tea bar.

Those are my three nostalgic moments. Let me know in the comments below what moments are nostalgic for you.
