Being away really has made me appreciate how lucky I am to call Edinburgh my home. I spent a day being a right tourist, wandering around with one of my best friends not doing much of anything other than (window) shopping and eating.
We ended the evening with a bit of a dinner party at my sisters flat. I helped her whip up balmoral chicken (chicken breast stuffed with haggis) and mash and veg for eight people. Quite the task when you are as inept as me in the kitchen.
I really do miss being in Edinburgh, but its true you don't appreciate what you have until its gone. Or in this case you move 500 miles away!
