while i was still under the impression spring was arriving, i had 'rescued' some flowers from a shop, not what i usually do - buy flowers - but the warmer air went to my head.
recently went through to Glasgow to go to the Art Fair opening; went early to miss peak train times and visited The Big Mac Shop - this is me outside it
a bit blurry - who took that!!
Glasgow's architecure is quite different form Edinburgh's, here is a bit of old grand architecture
recently went into Susie's diner for a coffee, Andrew was there, told me that it is closing in April. what a shock! Susie's (previously Seeds co-op cafe) has been so unique in Edinburgh for so long, many of us often used to meet up there to eat great food, you would always know someone when you went in. it's basic, unpretentious, friendly with big helpings of affordable veggie food. Well, i guess - well done Seeds and Susie's for lasting so long! some pics below
meanwhile i had a biopsy in my mouth yesterday, a 'minor procedure' its called. it didnt feel very minor to me at the time. but of course, it is. i can only eat mushy food which is causing me some consternation, how to sleep without accidentally damaging the stitches is also of concern which hopefully will pass soon. it isnt so sore today, so that is a good sign.
i have been going to the new cafe in the national library - its really nice and you can take your laptop and plug it in or use their own computers - free wifi as long as you get a coffee or something. good coffee for very reasonable prices. i have also joined for a period of time so i can use thier online resources for research.
