Tales from the weekend #4

Edinburgh German market pastry stand sign and christmas tree

We have just had one of those joyful long weekends. It kicked off at 1pm on Friday with lunch at the Galvin Brasserie de Luxe, where we had steak and chips. You know you’re having a good day when steak and chips is on the menu, or at least this is the case in my world.

Following our meat feast, we went for a wander around the city centre. Edinburgh does Christmas really well and at this time of year, certain areas of the city play homage to the festivities, with stalls serving mulled wine, fairground rides, ice rinks and lots of amazing food. It was super cold on Friday, which was the perfect excuse to drink cups of mulled wine as we explored the markets.

From the market, we went to see The Imitation Game. If you haven’t seen it yet, go whilst you can still catch it on the big screen. It was a fantastic film.

The rest of the weekend was spent catching up with friends, cooking lots of delicious food and finishing off Christmas shopping. How did you fill your weekend?

    That sounds pretty perfect. I spent the weekend on a training course. But it is one I have chosen to do so it is all kinds of okay.
