Ciao a tutti!

Hope you’re all having as nice a Sunday as I am. The sun has been shining all day for a change, and I feel very energetic as I’ve been to the gym and then climbed Arthur’s seat, followed by a super healthy quinoa-black bean-salmon salad for lunch. Slightly better than the hangover yesterday…

Days of Snot

Aargh, I haven’t left the flat since Sunday and am starting to go a little mental. It was my turn to catch a winter cold – let’s hope it’s the first and last one this winter. Colds are annoying, I feel like I’m not well enough to go to work, but feel guilty if I don’t work from home. So today I’m working from home (I’m taking a break to blog) – and look what I’ve produced so far:

The Canny Mans Pub Edinburgh

As Matthew was ill on New Year’s Eve we decided to have our own little celebration once back in the Burgh in January. First we went to the extremely cosy Canny Mans Pub in the posh Morningside area. The pub was established in 1871 and passed down through generations of the Kerr family, and it looks like not much has changed since then!

My Meals in Pictures

Happy Monday!

This post will be all about food. More precisely: about the food I eat. I don’t know about you, but I love seeing what other people eat – out of curiosity, but also to get new ideas for my own meals. I love TV shows about nutrition and that show how people eat, such as Supersize vs. Superskinny and Food Hospital…

A (nother) Year To Remember

Winter Sunset in Edinburgh
Sunset in Edinburgh. I love the chimneys against the sky – you’ll find them on most houses here.

Awrite! (Scottish for ‘hi’)

As the Christmas holiday is becoming just a distant memory and everyday life taking over again it’s starting to sink in that we’ve entered year 2014. When thinking back about last year, I realise that, once again, it’s been a year of changes. I like change, which might be a reason I, since I turned 18, haven’t stayed in the same place, school or job for a long period of time. 2013 was no different.

Happy New Year 2014!!!

Hope you’ve all had the chance to have a relaxing holiday and recharge your batteries for the new year. I’ve had a great (and extremely lazy) two weeks off work – which I had to pay for this morning when I dragged myself out of bed at 8 am only to spend the entire day in a zombiesque state. The fact that it’s Monday and it’s been raining the whole day didn’t make things better. Today is apparently the most depressing day of the year – totally agree!!

My First Christmas Cake

Posted on

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.
