Pretty Confused Week In Photos 25/05/2014
Why is it I am always running late? I'm so certain I had these ready to post on Sunday - c'est la vie. I can't believe I took these photos at the start of last week - look at the beautiful weather; blues skies, sunshine and everything. The complete opposite of the last few days which have been horrible, I was honestly worried the river behind our house might flood. Anyway, less weather talk. I spotted these flowers on a wander back from work, aren't they beautiful? I love how many people in my area have something alive on their front step.

Very hurried breakfast.

I spotted this sign outside a co-operative in Leith. Unfortunately they weren't open when I went by but I did love this sign.

Checking out some local antique shops, unfortunately I wanted the sign more than anything inside.

Voting in the European elections last week, my party didn't do as well as I was hoping but at least I got a change to vote (unlike some people).

Childhood Memories: Croissant In A Can



Sunday morning breakfast in our house isn't usually a big deal. Actually, let's be honest, breakfast in general isn't that big a deal in our house. My walk to work in the morning usually involves desperately stuffing whatever I could get my hand on into my face without spilling it all over the work clothes. At my parent's house though breakfast is a big deal and Sunday breakfast, well, they take that pretty damn seriously. Of one my strongest memories from when I was a child was making breakfast with my Mum, cereal, bacon, I think we even went through a brief kipper phase when I was a child. But my absolute favourite was croissants in a can.  

Some time late last year I was talking to a friend about memories from our childhood and she brought up croissants in a can. We spent a couple of minutes reminiscing about how much we enjoyed them, promised that we would keep an eye out in our respective supermarkets and then promptly forgot all about them again. Until last week, when I finally spotted them in a refrigerated section of our local Scotmid for only a pound. I couldn't resist. 

We had them for breakfast on Sunday morning with coffee rather than orange juice now that I'm an adult, but wow! It was so much fun making them again after all these years and even better I got to introduce LF to one of my favourite childhood memories. I'm definitely going to get some more this weekend so I can do it again, maybe it'll even become a little tradition, one that I might be able to share with my future children some day too.

Popped into The Dome on George Street for coffee. I can't believe how fancy it is in there, possibly my new favourite place to escape from the world.

Playing with tennis balls.

Lidl flowers are surprisingly good quality for only being £3, these babies are cheering up my kitchen at the moment.

Late evening dog walks, I'm crazy about this new bag from Tiger. Perfect for carrying around dog biscuits, leads and bags.

I've been looking for the perfect sized mug for my morning cup of tea, I think I might have found it in this one from Tiger.

Being disorganised sometimes has its perks, I got an every day diary and a blogging diary (so far unused) on sale along with some other bits and bobs.
