Hello, Bruntsfield!

Seeing as I will be starting my MA soon (that sounds scary, it’s very soon!), I felt I should have a look at the area in which I am going to be spending a fair amount of time.


I do know Bruntsfield reasonably well, it’s not far from where we live now, but I just felt like going to have a look at the Screen Academy itself and its surrounding areas. So we decided to get the bus out to Bruntsfield one morning, looking at all the lovely (and expensive!) houses along the way.

It was a bit grey and rainy at first but the day soon brightened up and we had a lovely little walk around Bruntsfield.

There are lots of nice things to see, and the area around the Screen Academy looks lovely, so I am really looking forward to spending some more time there.

Eventually we got hungry and headed back home for some lunch.


Seeing it made it all seem a lot more real, I am really looking forward to my course starting.


Back to Enjoying Edinburgh…with food!

So, we’ve been back in Edinburgh for a while now. I am only just now catching up on some blog posts of Edinburgh.

My first weekend back was nice, but I was missing my family and Austria, so we decided to indulge ourselves. First we went out for a lovely lunch.

Fraser had to work on Saturday but the rest of the weekend we spent time wandering around our beloved Edinburgh, stopping off at a new cafe that has cropped up while we were away.

We made ourselves a nice Sunday lunch with delicious cookies afterwards as a treat.

Food makes everything better, even if it doesn’t quite get rid of homesickness.


I do love Edinburgh, and I am rediscovering all the things I love about living here.

Family – the most important thing

This is the last of my posts about our wonderful holiday in Austria, and it is dedicated to a few photographs of us hanging out as a family. Family really is the most important thing, and I miss them all terribly. I wish I could see them more, but I am glad that we all get on so well and that we had this amazing time together. I can’t wait to see them again soon.

I love you all ❤
