The prize for November is one of my Edinburgh Mugs. Available in Victoria StreetLeith or Edinburgh Castle they are perfect for an winter warming cuppa!

Plenty to see at Edinburgh Book Festival

BookFest2014_booksI and the wee Sketchers (seen here sitting at one of the sunflower tables) were soaking up the sun in Charlotte Square yesterday afternoon. Surrounded by books,authors and illustrators I have to admit we got a little carried away in the shop.

 

There is so much on in Edinburgh at this time of the year I sometimes only find my way to the Book Festival on the last day and rush around in a blur trying to take it all in.

 

This year however I and the kids were there to soak up the atmosphere (and sunshine) and enjoy being amongst the wonderful world of words, illustrations and knowledge that is a book festival. After buying a (rather lovey) canvas bag full of books in the children’s shop we spent an hour cutting and sticking in the kids craft tent.

 

And with a week still to go I will definitely be back, although next time perhaps on my own… those deck chairs look great for a wee snooze in the sun.
