Its hard to avoid culture in Edinburgh.  I love the city.  One day I will get to stay a few nights and walk and walk and walk to explore it much more.  DH and I used to do this when we lived in London.  Its the only way to discover the hidden gems of cities. 

I’ve already found my hotel – the Witchery by the Castle.  I live and dream…… (and keep hinting a lot!)

I never tired of this view either.  Guess I have a thing about castles……

Another day we had a “cupcake” moment – only a photo as I can’t eat the darned things of course…. managed to embarrass DS taking the photo.  Isn’t being embarrassing in the job description for mothers?  Yes I thought so too 🙂

    I love Edinburgh too – such an inspiring city. Can't wait to go and visit the Another World exhibition. And the cupcakes look great!

    Any change of a gluten-free cupcake anywhere in the city of Edinburg? Lovely pictures by the way!

    Edinburgh is not a city one can weary of!

    But tell your DS that if all his mother does is embarrass him, he is still ahead of the game! My mother managed to scandalise me once…

    When we were in Madrid at some of the art galleries there were gaps for paintings which had gone to Edinborough – so you had them!!
