If we were having coffee I’d tell you we were in the same place last weekend except this weekend the boy is here for a 13-18 year old print workshop rather than the Edinburgh Open doors weekend where we came to look at the repurposed North British Rubber Company building at Castle Mills
Now thanks to a bunch of funding initiatives (The Heritage Lottery Fund, Creative Scotland, Historic Environment Scotland and a number of trusts and foundations) the building has been re-purposed and a new lease of life given by the Edinburgh Printmakers. An organisation dedicated to the practice of fine art printmaking, high quality, low cost printmaking facilities for artists.
Last weekend we were early and the Lemon Polenta cake with an americano hit the spot and reminds me that I need to find a recipe.
Today, late afternoon not so lucky, I’ve opted for a date slice and a pot of tea. I‘ve carved out a couple of hours by being a chaperone, in case he needs me was the excuse. I know he’ll be fine and so to sit somewhere without interruption is a long overdue decadence.
I’m listening to the playlist that goes alongside the release of the new autobiography by Jean Michelle Jarre. An eclectic mix of music and genres.
Since my last post my Monday night Persian cookery course has kicked off. Forcing me to stick with recipes, think up front about the weekly shop. A simple chicken thigh dish with red opnions was a definite family hit for tea the night after.
Theres been no sign of the boy so far and we are 30 mins in, the clock is ticking and I’m torn by time….I’ve brought in several journals to pick up and move on. I like to keep the professional side of my life separate to the creative hobbyist side. As consequence the reflective side takes a back burner time and time again.
I’m going to leave you there an pick up one of those books. Thankyou for joining me on another of my sporadic coffee stops!
