It was so foggy yesterday. Edinburgh is quite spooky when the fog rolls in from the sea and covers everything and anyone so you can’t see anything at all. People walking down the street peer at each other suspiciously and buildings you see every day completely disappear from sight, as though the whole city has suddenly developed cataracts. Even my walk to the shop at the end of the road felt really eerie. Definitely a good day to stay home and bake.
I just wanted to take a few photos of my new kitchen, because I love it so much. It’s the first kitchen I’ve ever been able to fill with my own stuff, and I’ve been really enjoying just tending a pot of something with the BBC World Service on in the background, or doing the washing up to some pounding power pop.
I’ve also got some new cookbooks that just arrived yesterday making themselves at home on the top shelf. I’m especially enjoying Nigel Slater’s Kitchen Diaries – even though lots of his recipes make me want a vegetable garden, which is dangerous thinking. Maybe I’ll just stick to a few herbs on the windowsill for now….
