The story of Merry By The Tay

A few years ago as I approached 30 I started this blog under the name Merry By The Ferry. It was a little hobby to help uplift my mood – I had been suffering chronic headaches and migraines and I needed to try and be a little bit more healthy about my life and to try and be a more positive and happy person.

My life has now changed a lot, we have moved into our own lovely house in a village by The River Tay (on the Fife side) that is slowly being rampaged by our very active 18 month old girl. I now work part time in the same college librarian role as before, get nowhere near enough sleep and struggle to find time to indulge in my old hobbies of cooking and sewing and walking around the lovely Scottish countryside. I am trying though – and I’m hoping that this blog will help spur me on.  I think in some ways my life has never been so full on, or so constrained as it is now. Every day is a little bit exhausting and challenging but I don’t think our lives have every been filled with so much joy.
