This was a really fun day. It began with a glutes and abs class at my gym, then a 6 mile walk with Indie along the canal. Brittany and I stopped off at Pete’s coffee shop, Black Pine Coffee. Cake was had. Cake was deserved.
After speaking in Nottingham at New Adventures, I went to London for the weekend. I had a meeting on Monday, but decided to, y’know, do London just for fun for a few days.
I invited Brittany with me. We ate lots of food (can’t stop thinking about the mac and cheese at Camden Market), had lots of drink (half pints of Camden Hells), walked all over the city and visited Bram Stoker’s house. Win!
You’ve met Brittany before. But I can never have enough photos of my friend, Brittany. This was after we’d stuffed our faces at West Brewery with currywurst.
Having visited South Queensferry in July, I vowed I’d return with my camera. Brittany and I enjoyed a burger at Orocco Pier, followed by a stroll around the quaint town centre. At 28, it was my first taste of a vegetarian burger (definitely no substitute for beef, but I’m trying to eat less of that).
All in all, a fabulous day before I throw myself into a busy week of work.
Whenever Brittany asks if I want to hang out, I usually reply with, “Yes! Let’s go for food and eat everything and get fat”, but I indulged more than anyone over Christmas (and my birthday, and the weekend, and any day that isn’t even special). This time, I opted for a healthier alternative and suggested we go for a walk.
Brittany recommended walking along the West Highland Way (which I did not know existed) to Mugdock Castle. I’m glad she did. It was a beautiful walk, and my aching glutes suggest my body benefited from it, too.
