Old haunts

Well, I fell off the NaBlaPoMo wagon in spectacular style. Apart from a general tendency towards laziness on my part, I think part of the problem was that posting articles every day on the internet was a lot like my old job... which was posting articles every day on the internet. So, unsuprisingly, blogging became much less fun than usual.

And then I scarpered off to Edinburgh for a long weekend to catch up with all the people I haven't seen since I moved to Ireland in June. Hurray! It was good to see all the familiar faces, catch up on all the gossip and visit old haunts - but I'm glad to be back home as, pathetically, I missed Mr B soooooooooooo much.

All this means that I'm feeling rejuvenated and ready to get back in the kitchen. Normal food-related blogging will resume shortly!

PS That's a picture of the Royal Mile in Edinburgh on a grey and cloudy day (roll on winter). All very moody and atmospheric. Love it.

I was wondering where you were off too! Glad you had a break and got to visit some friends. Nothing wrong with that! Welcome back Jan!

Yeah - I really needed the break and it was just what I needed. It was great fun - just wish I had some decent photos to share of all the wonderful places in Edinburgh. Unfortunately, the camera gods were not with me on this trip and most of my pics were blurry!
