Happy Mothers Day

What a great weekend it was!  Scotland drew against England in the Rugby.  (This is good because I didn’t have to put up with a smug husband all weekend!)  The weather was superb, I think it reached a balmy 11 degrees on Saturday!  Then on Sunday morning I woke up bleerey eyed to Callum with a lovely breakfast he’d prepared for me.  It was such a nice surprise!  The only thing is Callum, now I know how well you can make eggs, toast and tea, I hope to have it a bit more often 😉

Little did I know that Steve was filming it all at the time just so I could see Callum in action!  Eat your heart out Gordon Ramsay!  And no, Callum DIDN’T say the ‘F’ word!

Thanks Callum and Steve for a lovely day and a lovely memento!

Love Mum x

A New Scottish Pub – Ghillie Dhu

I was very excited to hear that a brand new Scottish pub will be opening its doors in Edinburgh this Saturday March 13th!

While the former church was in the depths of reconstruction/refurbishment. I used to often pass it wondering what it would be.  Well, now I know!  It’s called Ghillie Dhu and it’s set to be Edinburgh’s brand new Scottish Pub!

It has a great location next to the Caledonian Hotel in Edinburgh’s salubrious West End.  It will be open all day from 8.30am till 3am, serving lovely Scottish food.  We went for a sneak preview today and were very impressed!  The food served there was superb.  Simple Scottish food made with great locally sourced ingredients.  So, if you’re looking to sample some lovely Haggis, Scottish Mussels, Aberdeen Angus Beef or great Scottish desserts like ‘Clootie Dumpling’ or Glayva ice-cream then this is the place for you!

Inside it has a very nice feel to it.  It does feel Scottish and great to see that there isn’t a tartan carpet or jimmy hat in sight!  Instead, it’s modern & contemporary but has still kept a lot of the traditional features of the original building.

Could it get better?  Yes, of course it can!  As well as great food, they’ll be having live entertainment with folk and acoustic sessions every night and there will also be a ceilidh once a week!

To find out more, visit their site at http://www.ghillie-dhu.co.uk or call them to make a reservation on 0131-222-9930.

Well worth a visit I’d say!  Sorry there aren’t any photos, they wouldn’t let us take any!

Enjoy!

Wow! Now some October Sunshine in Scotland!

Another wonderfully sunny (and pretty warm) October day!

We all went out today for some fresh air and chilled out with breakfast and coffee in town, so relaxing 🙂

We got to all spend some time together away from work and got to remember that family really is such an important thing in life.  It takes mornings like this to realise that the phrase ‘wake up and smell the coffee’ is just so true!

So here’s to all the wonderfully positive people out there like us, our family and our friends.  Thanks for being happy beautiful positive people!

Callum loves his ‘moody face’ when taking pictures.  His poses are either ‘moody’ or ‘laughing his head off’ and nothing much inbetween 🙂  He’s our little star!!
