I’m feeling pretty festive this weekend, even though it doesn’t really feel like there are only a couple of weeks left until Christmas. Yesterday afternoon Laura and I put up the Christmas tree in the flat (after only just taking down the last of the Halloween decorations last week…), followed by a festive roast dinner. I’m going to send my Christmas cards this week – all three of them – and will no doubt be doing bits and pieces of Christmas present shopping. I think it’ll soon be time to break out the Christmas bed sheets too!
On Friday evening I headed along to the Cambridge Satchel Company‘s new pop-up shop in Edinburgh for some drinks, a catch up with my blogging pals, and a look round the new store. I had already been in a couple of weeks before, when I treated myself to a beautiful purple batchel. I’ve been admiring Cambridge Satchel Company bags for years online, but this was the first time I’d seen them in the flesh. As well as the George Street pop-up in Edinburgh, there’s also one through in Glasgow at the moment so it’s definitely worth stopping by if you’ve been eyeing one up and want to get a feel for them first! After the event, Laura and I wandered along George Street looking for somewhere for dinner but everywhere was fully booked so we ended up walking back to one of my faves, Passorn, for some delicious Thai food and lots of wine.
Aside from a wee midweek takeaway with some pals, the rest of this week has been fairly quiet as I’ve just been busy with work. I have a feeling things will be pretty hectic at the Made From Scotland Pop-Up Shop over the next couple of weeks (plus there are numerous Christmas lunches, dinners, drinks and catch ups planned) so I’m looking forward to being able to relax for a little bit once the Christmas holidays do actually arrive!
What have you been up to this week?
