Busy with balls!

Dearie me, can’t believe it’s been so long since our last post – but we’ve not been idle, honest!

Since our last update, Laura has had her birthday and matching BBQ (and is now back at uni in Glasgow), Kirstie graduated and has just started her first “proper” job (sadly for us, this has taken her to the other end of the country) and we have a fair few festivals and events under our belts. Oh, and the fabulous wedding of one very social media-savvy Border Terrier’s  lovely humans 🙂  dsc_0315

Most of the summer passed without incident – if we discount the fiasco that was Foodies Festival, that is.  We’re almost over it, so we won’t talk about it here – suffice to say, we won’t be making a return visit!

The wedding at Pollockshields Burgh Hall was most definitely a highlight.  Sadly, the homeward journey is one we’ll remember for a long time – for all the wrong reasons. Let’s just say Belle’s contrary windscreen wipers excelled themselves. And there was the small detail of being locked out of the house when we got home at 12:30am  – not even a car key between us. Had it not been for our lovely next door neighbour, we would have  had to spend the night in Belle locked up in our garage – thank you Lesley, for being a light sleeper and coming to the rescue!

In our second summer of trading, we were making a few return visits – and they didn’t disappoint. The airshow at East Fortune was a lovely day, and we were able to see a bit more of the show this time, Peebles Highland Games was another great day out and Belle gained some new admirers at the Bo’ness Hill Climb Revival.

Alongside the various events, we’ve also kept up regular appearances at Fountainbridge Streetfood Fridays where we’re enjoying getting to know the regulars and at Edinburgh Farmers’ Market where we’re now picking up more and more of our supplies.

As the nights draw in, we have a few visits to the Pitt to look forward to, we’re very excited about a wedding later this month, and delighted to be catering for a  special birthday party too.

Enough for now!  We will do our very best to fit in another couple of updates before the end of the year.
