Meet Mary Ella

Hi! I am Mary Ella,  and I am 11 years old. I like art, animals, and reading. My favourite colors are orange and green.

I’m excited for all the fun things we will get to do in Scotland, but I miss my friends and family back home sometimes. One thing I am looking forward to in Scotland is going to the zoo in Edinburgh, where they have pandas! We are living in a little house in the East Sands, near the beach, and near a leisure center.

And now…

Pros and Cons of Living in a New Place


  • Chilly a lot
  • Rainy a lot
  • Having to share a room


  • The tax is included in the price
  • Living near a beach
  • Living near a Leisure Center with a water slide
  • The smallness of the town
  • ”Costa” brand coffee shop
  • Leather couch
  • My HUGE bed
  • Tiny library with a sleeping cat ❤
  • “Suger Rush” newsagents with licorice all-sorts

As you can see, there are much more good things than bad! 😀

    Hello Mary Ella,

    Your observations were very insightful. I’d like to see you continue your pro and con list as you go along.

    It is partly because the weather is so chilly and rainy, that the Scots made more inventions than any other people on earth. They stayed inside and studied and made things – things that changed the world, like electricity and television…….

    Thank you for sharing.

    Mary Pat

    Hi Mary Ella,

    I’m using my father’s email because gmail and Yahoo will not allow me to have one. The minimum age is 13 BUT my father shared your father’s blog and your entry 😁

    I miss you and hope you’re having fun in Scotland. I cut off 10 inches of my hair. Can you believe that 😁 I’ll write more tomorrow since I have to get ready for bed, but I wanted to say HI, I Miss You, and I Love your postcard!

    Hi Mary Ella,

    Olivia wrote the other night but her post did not stick. Not sure why but let’s hope this one does. Olivia says HI and that she missed you.
