Snagging

Yesterday we had lots of the tiny little things that have been bugging me sorted.  The shutters now look ‘right’ and they do not swing out at all, the windows have handles on every one and they are the right way round, the picture rail is sorted in the hall and the door handle in my bedroom no longer falls off every time I close the door.  Isn’t it funny how getting little jobs done can make your week.  The doorbell still needs fixed so we actually know when someone is at the door, luckily Lennie is a good doorbell substitute – he barks every time the front gate goes. It feels so good to have got here, pretty much  finished.  The man from the council is coming next week, fingers crossed for that one.  Hope Lennie does not put him off!

Almond Tea

Anteaques is a fabulous tea shop cum antique shop here in Edinburgh.  They have the most amazing range of tea and I am loving the almond tea right now.  The first taste of the almond tea was when my husband chose it in Peter’s Yard after we had been up at the festival watching a BBC live broadcast, we needed something to cheer us up, it was challenging to say the least!  If you’ve not been to Peter’s Yard, you must go, the pizzas in the Stockbridge one are amazing and the range of pastries and bakes is unusual and so, so appetising.  I digress, if you have time head on up the bridges and find Anteaques, it is near the Queen’s Hall and Festival Theatre on Clerk Street.  They sell all their teas to take away and serve super scones and teas in amongst the antiques for sale.  What a brilliant combination it is. Check out their website Anteaques for more information.
