When I say ‘we’, I’m referring to us humans who live at the Corby Craig Residence. Hero, our dog, has his own introductory blog-page (in true diva style).
We are Craig & Simon! Just an average couple from Edinburgh, Scotland. We’re the bill-payers at the Corby Craig Residence and funders of Hero’s lavish lifestyle. Oh, I best add since we’re both male – that I (Craig) am on the left of the photo above and Simon is on the right! We’re easily mixed up and usually asked if we’re ‘twins’ – which is more than awkward but we’re VERY different if you were to see us in person!
To clarify, Simon doesn’t have much participation in this website/blog or the Instagram page but of course, he is a very major part of the Corby Craig Residence so I can’t not mention him! So when you see any blog or Instagram posts, they are more than likely created and/or posted by me (Craig).
We’ve been together now for the best part of 3.5yrs (which doesn’t seem very long at all when I write that but my goodness it feels longer!). We’re engaged and together, run a dance company in Edinburgh that Simon started a 6 years ago called ‘Simon Says Dance’.
Simon is the lead Commercial Dance Teacher of the company and is definitely the more agile of us both. I on the other hand am as agile as an artic lorry and my skills lie with looking after everything else to do with the business and running it. In other words, Simon teaches and I’m the Boss.
Simon’s from a Musical Theatre background, hence his interest in dance. I have a background in Business/HR, which prompted the decision to work together and we’ve never looked back!
Believe it or not, interest in interiors is something we don’t share. I wouldn’t say Simon doesn’t care about it, he just doesn’t bother about it. I on the other hand LOVE interiors and everything about it, which is why the Instagram page @corbycraigresidence came about!
