Just a quick post featuring some pictures and links from things I’ve enjoyed this weekend… (although I was working yesterday, so not the 4 day weekend that most people I know were able to enjoy!)
– Doing a stint at the Meadows Fair stall for Lead Scotland (the charity I work for in Edinburgh) on Saturday. Despite the cold and windy weather, we had a great time selling stuff to raise money. I purchased a couple of items – a really cool vintage box and also a teacup set. AND I’ve managed to pack the tea set into the box, result! And we met with Mr B’s #1 Best Man (as opposed to his other best man, the best BEST man) for wanders around Edinburgh and a trip to Wagamama’s. THEN followed by an evening at the Adam Smith Theatre for a Roddy Woomble (of Idlewild) gig.
– Jubilee celebrations. I’ve had major London withdrawal symptoms this weekend seeing all the Jubilee coverage. I thought the concert was fantastic – I used to work just round the corner from Buckingham Palace so it was quite weird seeing so many many people pack out the space that I used to walk with my lunch buddy Donna. I was in awe of Grace Jones and her awesome hula-hooping ability! We also had a lovely Jubilee tea for two in front of the TV, and watched the Kings Speech.
-Days like today where I’ve been able to sleep in, transfer myself to the sofa to watch more Jubilee goings on for a couple of hours, make a delish sweet potato, spinach and courgette salad for lunch, go for a swim and do some shopping, head to the Bonnybank Inn for a lovely Mexican dinner, head home and play some scrabble with Mr B during a rainy evening. Thanks HRH for an extra bank holiday!
