Earlier this month the Scotsman and I went to Edinburgh for a bit of a holiday – also to see two plays and visit his family in Wishaw.

I have often been heard to say that I think Edinburgh is the most beautiful city Great Britain, and with the sun out to greet us and lovely things to do, see and buy my opinion hasn’t changed. I had a relaxing spa visit at The Balmoral and besides the two plays (‘Time and Conways’ in Edinburgh and ‘Taking Over the Asylum’ at the Cits in Glasgow) we saw three art  exhibitions and I finally bought several very beautiful things from Ragamuffin… a shop I have looked at with great longing many times before.
