I wanted to contribute to the Christmas meal someway, and as I’ve managed to bake decent things in the past I decided to give baking a Christmas cake a go – although Matthew was afraid I would ruin Christmas.
This sheepskin coat is sure to keep me warm this winter! What do you think? It’s a find (£45) from the monthly Drill Hall flea market in Leith. (I think the collar might be mink, but I justify it to myself with the fact that it’s a second hand coat…)
Hope everyone’s had a good weekend! My weekend somehow just whizzed by at the speed of light – again. On Saturday we celebrated Matthew’s parents’ 32nd anniversary as well as his dad’s birthday with a long lunch at La P’tite Folie. (It was such a nice lunch that I completely forgot to take photos.)
Here she finally is – our beloved Christmas tree! She’s had to endure the cold and rain in our backyard since October, but thankfully she survived, greener than ever, so we could put her in a corner and bling her up. Not bad for a first Christmas tree, right? I wish we could keep her throughout the winter, she just lights up the room and makes it feel homier. Pretty sure Matthew won’t let me though…
Last Saturday we decided to defy the sea of people and venture into the Edinburgh Christmas Market in Prince Street Gardens to soak up some of the Christmas spirit. However, the place was packed (even more so than the Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park in London last year) so we gave up pretty quickly and went to Matthew’s folks for dinner, some vino tinto and chilling in front of a log fire instead! I managed to snap a few photos though – how beautiful isn’t that pink sunset?!
