Have a Happy Weekend!

What are you doing this weekend? We’re hoping to spend some time at the pool, and I’m getting a much needed manicure on Saturday afternoon. I’ve seen a few people who have been getting one fingernail a different colour – is this a thing now? As usual, I’m featuring an original illustration by the wonderful Alison Soye, and here are few fun things to do in Edinburgh this weekend…

Have you been to the new indoor skatepark and roller rink at Ocean Terminal?

There’s nothing better than a wonder round local food markets. Do you have a favourite? Mine is definitely Stockbridge.


Ever Sunday, Golden Hare Books‘ resident storyteller Elspeth Chapman reads a picture book from the bookshop’s Children’s Room.  Grownups can enjoy a free tea or coffee whilst browsing the books.

The Fairy Walks are back at the Secret Herb Garden.

This Saturday also sees The MagicFest gala featuring ‘the best illusion and circus acts from around the world‘.

Plus, some good reads from some of my favourite bloggers:

Odd Hogg on – When Contraception Goes Wrong.

Five Little Doves on – The banning of Home Dopplers.

Some amazing news from Mummy Times Two.

I also love this post from Scandi Mummy on giving compliments.

Whatever you get up to this weekend – I hope you have a great one!
