Back in August 2015 I attended a very insightful talk by Christopher Fleet and Daniel McCannell about their book Mapping Edinburgh at the Edinburgh Book Festival. Edinburgh has such a rich history - for example, the entire area we live in is a conservation area and every street has a fascinating history.
It was dry enough and warm enough by Scottish standards for a light coat and my Stan Smiths - good to give the duvet coat a break every so often! I did however wear my new bobble hat - I'm addicted to Topshop bobble hats!
Further proof of the strange weather were these confused cherry blossoms which were out far too early.
Much of the Dean estate was designed by the architect John Tait and I particularly like Clarendon Crescent - a very aesthetic curve of a street.
My favourite street is Ann Street - where I'm destined to live but I'm yet to find a home that fits our requirements and budget!
What I think the area could really do with is a coffee shop or two. Whilst it is close enough to Stockbridge high street but a coffee shop would enliven the place some more.
So there we are - a tiny slice of Edinburgh to have your elevenses. Hope you are all having a lovely Sunday! Ann x
