Happy 2019! How is everyone doing? Hope you had a wonderful mince-pie-and-turkey-filled Christmas and a relaxing start to 2019. If Christmas isn’t your favourite time of the year, then I’m sending a big ol’ hug over to you.
Today marks the one year anniversary of my big move from a sleepy town in Surrey, England to the beautiful, bustling city of Edinburgh. It’s been without question, one of the toughest things I’ve ever done, uprooting myself from the town I grew up in, moving away from where the majority of my friends were living and starting a whole new life in a new country and city.
I’m back! It’s been a while I know, but sometimes life just gets in a way, making it all together impossible to balance everything that’s going on. Looking back at my posts, my last Sunday Duvet Reading series was back in July (two ENTIRE months ago- how did this even happen?). Even though I am in complete denial that it is now October, I am hugely excited to crack the heating back on, snuggle up under a pile of blankets with a cup of tea, preferably English Breakfast, and get utterly lost in a good old book.
Since moving to Edinburgh just over six months ago, I’ve discovered a number of lovely brunch spots- some through recommendations and some by simply walking through the city and spotting places as I go. Finding a good brunch place in Edinburgh is by no means a struggle- there is so much choice and variation no matter what your dietary requirements may be.
Since moving to Scotland last November, I’ve been trying to explore as much as as possible over the weekends. Yesterday, we took a trip in Fliss the Ford to the gorgeous little town of Peebles, situated in the borders of Scotland and around half an hour from Edinburgh.
