The first coffee of the day. Good morning Edinburgh.


A new and very welcome addition to the studio is this mini cafetiere from Ikea.


Last week while picking up pens and pencils and cushion fillers from the big blue shop with yellow writing (Sketcher Twin 1’s description), I treated myself to a wee cafetiere and some of their medium roast coffee. And surprisingly good it is too.


What’s your favourite brand of real coffee?

I’m going in…

Yesterday afternoon I was sat in Ikea car park out at Straiton retail park on the South East side of Edinburgh. The twins were sleeping in the back and I was sketching away delaying the inevitable fight through the crowds to do a little shopping before Christmas.

I shouldn’t of worried though, it turns out 3pm on a Wednesday afternoon is the perfect time to hit the big blue box and with my family card I get free tea and coffee during the week. Bonus 🙂
