The island can be a bit of a womb; Comforting and consuming but hard to leave . However, we managed last week and bolted down to Edinburgh for a city stint with scraggy dog in tow. Great to have my Damon Buzz (aka Phillip Pullman Dark Materials) nearby, however dogs in cities do cramp ones style somewhat. We spent quite a lot of time lingering on small Edinburgh greens clutching poo bags. However, we did stride around town more than we may have, giving exercise to the pooch. Unfortunately dogs are not allowed in or anywhere near the national gallery of Modern art so Yorick and Buzz had to occupy themselves on the street while I marvelled at Joan Eardley’s use of colour and ability to express her unique energy through texture, form and line…stunning!
Also grand to catch up with the boys. Ruben is working in a Marshmallow boutique with sweet handmade delights in funky flavours such as lemon cheesecake and whiskey!
Back now to the daily routine and refreshed after the break from it.
