Mini Adventure: In Search of a Good Book

Mini Adventure: In Search of a Good BookUpon moving to Edinburgh, I discovered a lovely bookshop around the corner called Golden Hare Books. They even have a book club that suits my Birthday List needs. This nearby luxury was short-lived: not long after we met, the hare moved away to a new part of town.

Instead of lamenting the loss of my new love, its relocation became a quest for a mini adventure to Stockbridge, a lovely little pocket of a neighbourhood not too far away. Twas a good way to practice cycling in the big city (bigger than I’ve ever cycled in anyway), and to wander around its paths and corners.

Mini Adventure: In Search of a Good BookMy visit to Stockbridge was short, but in it were many discoveries: someday I must return for their famous Sunday market, and for this week’s Stockfest celebrations.

Sometimes a destination just slightly out of the way can lead to the most lovely of mini adventures; it’s just a matter of calling it such.

Mini Adventure: Getting Organised with Cake

Mini Adventure: Getting Organised with Cake

In the inevitable small talk of freshers week, someone asked if I had adjusted to the city and found my local watering hole. I answered with a straight face that yes, I found my tea and cake place. Because that’s what it’s all about. Meet Lovecrumbs, my peaceful sugary refuge of baking delights, host to cushioned seating in the front window and at the back piano.

My delayed wifi situation was the perfect excuse to frequent this place Quite Often, and I seem to be unable to shake the habit. Yesterday afternoon, the Monkey and I stopped in for post-cycle-round-the-Meadows slices of cake. I also brought a canvas bag of notebooks and my laptop to tackle my pre-semester organisation.

Lovecrumbs has a new [literal] cabinet of fresh cakes every day with seasonal ingredients and mismatched plates. My top three so far are the caramel chocolate brownie, the rose or violet chocolate tart, and their pistachio and cardamom cake.

Something about being in a lovely café inspires calm and eases overwhelming tasks, don’t you think?
