Last week I visited the Royal Highland Show for the first time, which was such a great day out for the whole family. I’ll be blogging more about that later as I have around a million photos to share from the day! Anyway, at the show I was invited to meet with a representative for Norwegian Ekornes to learn more about what comfort really is about – and as I’m always keen to endorse the Nordics I just couldn’t say no.
I couldn’t believe my eyes when I checked the news yesterday morning. I hadn’t even considered the possibility of a brexit victory, especially since I don’t know a single person who voted for leaving. That might be because in this vote it was the older generations who chose the future path for the younger generations, a path so many don’t want to go down.
We’ve left the sun, sea and sand in Mallorca behind us and are now back in grey but fortunately not too cold Auld Reekie. Even though both Lana and Matthew caught a cold it was a good holiday and I managed to clock off from work and relax – and since we didn’t pay for internet in our room we had very limited access to social media as well which was actually really nice!
It’s exciting times at the moment. As I mentioned in my last blog post, we’re looking for a place to buy – and I think we’ve found one we want to make an offer on! It’s a bit inconvenient that we’re going to Mallorca for a week on Tuesday morning though, but I’m sure we can work around that somehow.
The other week we were viewing a flat in Leith (yes, we’re thinking about buying again…) and since we were in the area I wanted to visit a cafe/vintage shop/art gallery on Lyne Street in Abbeyhill that I was clued in on through Instagram. As soon as we stepped inside I took a liking to the place and decided I want to do a blog post to support the shop. Unfortunately I didn’t have my camera, so photos aren’t great I’m afraid…
It’s taken me so long to blog about our visit to the Secret Herb Garden that Lana’s visibly grown since! The Secret Herb Garden is a place where you can buy and learn about herbs, have a coffee and a piece of home made cake and just relax and enjoy the surrounding countryside.
