Hello Edinburgh!

So I’ve been back in Edinburgh for a week now, and despite really missing my family, it does feel good to be back. Mainly it was nice to be reunited with Fraser. I was lucky to be greeted with a truly glorious spring day the day after my return, and Fraser and I decided to make the most of it.

We went for a walk in the lovely sunshine and stopped off to buy some of our favourite coffee (Guatemalan Elephant, in case you were wondering).

We took our time, catching up, chatting and enjoying the fact that spring had finally arrived after a long, cold winter.

Eventually we felt hungry and so stopped off at Bibi’s Bakery for some of their amazing and delicious cupcakes. It’s a treat we don’t often allow ourselves but when we do, we are always reminded of just how great their little bakery is and just how fantastic their cupcakes are.

As it was getting late and we still had plans for the evening we decided to head home to devour our cupcakes. It was a lovely late afternoon, still sunny and warm.

Being home meant cupcake eating time, and oh, were they good!

A chocolate-orange and a smarty cupcakes for me, and a lemon and a nutella cupcake for Fraser.

By the evening it was time to head out again as the sun set over the city.

We rounded off the evening with some tapas in a restaurant we hadn’t been to before, (where we seemed to disappoint the waiter that the ‘Shearer’ reservation was not, in fact, for Alan Shearer). Followed by a trip to the cinema.

It’s good to be back, Edinburgh, please stay sunny for a little while so we can continue to enjoy you. Thank you!
