Come on by and grab that coffee, welcome to 2019 from the EdinburghCook!
It’s been a funny week from a schedule point of view, both work and holiday intermingled. The boys still off on holiday from school. One revising for his first batch of what we’d call real exams
I’ve been in and out the office, which has been quiet with an element of thinking time. I’d craved it so much that when I got it I was almost paralysed with too much choice, like a rabbit in head lights. It didn’t last long and service was promptly returned to normal yesterday as folk started returning. The nuance of the day changes, people need things, decisions need to be made and the time for thinking is reduced…even by the simple hello’s along the corridors or the stairs.
Cooking wise there has been a one pot with chicken and oranges (good seasonal produce) and a disaster spelt loaf that turned into an amazing Focaccia. This evening we have our last Christmas invite…albeit overdue, catching up with friends who are cooking for us….which is a real treat and leaves me at a loose end cooking thoughts for a Saturday.
Means a trip into town guilt free without the rush of having to get back in time to start preps, it’s really nice to be cooked for at a personal level and not to be taken for granted.
The weekend otherwise is looking cold and damp, the decorations are down and we are very much starting to think about the warmer times ahead. And this reminds me I want to look up a list of Munro’s (Scottish Mountains over 300ft)in Excel format. I’m going to tackle or more correctly bag 50 before I’m 50 as a challenge. I’ve revisited an older post on new years resolutions and what it means blogging wise….advice for myself more than anything else.
The bulbs are starting to come through and I’m looking forward to seeing Snowdrops, the temperature doesn’t know what it’s doing so maybe by the next time you come round for coffee….I’ll be able to report back sightings.
