OOOh where to start?! I first met Heather and Glenn at Judy and Daniel’s wedding, last year. Heather had chatted to me a little bit about some of their wedding plans, and I have to admit that it did all sound rather exciting 🙂
Speeding forward a few months, and with a few email chats back and forth between Scotland and Germany, and we hatched a plan to meet up in Edinburgh. And this is where the fun begins …
We met at a wee cafe in Edinburgh called “The Elephant House” – otherwise know as the birth place of Harry Potter! Yes, you read right – for those of you who don’t know about it its the place that JK Rowling wrote some of the first Harry Potter books! And it also sells rather nice food – the perfect starting place to meet Heather and Glenn, to begin our walk round Edinburgh. OH and did I mention that The Elephant House has a live web cam to boot?!! Yes indeedy – I had a few close friends who knew I was going to be there, and watched, fingers posed to grab some shots of us there – I know it is verging on a tad weird but amusing never the less!
(thank you so much Amanda Hayler for capturing this!!) And yes, that would be me ordering a delicious bit of carrot cake!
And here is us leaving – see if you can spot us all! I am the one taking the pic of the notice board with some rather cool pictures drawn by previous cafe goers! We chatted, we walked, we had a blooming fantastic time – Heather, Glenn, it was such fun, thank you xxx
First stop – The National Museum of Scotland – we all have a mutual love of that building – both Heather and Glenn having fond memories of visiting the place in the University days, going there to draw – its a very inspiring place.
Then another little treat in store – I have a bit of a thing for handmade books – and these are all sorts of amazing. Seriously … and I am not the only one to think so – Glenn & Heather’s friends own a very cool place called Owl and Lion in the West Port in Edinburgh, owned by Isabelle & Edward…..the very talented Isabelle and her beautiful hand made books where featured on Kirstie Allsops’s Handmade Britain (the Chirstmas one) … have a wee look at the link – its a fascinating process.
Heather, Glenn – it was SUCH a fun day – thank you ever so much – i totally can not wait till May 2013 !!!!!!
