5 Senses Friday (okay...saturday)...



Please forgive my slightly late post for 5 senses...I ended up staying the night in Edinburgh after my trip through yesterday, and have just got back home! So..here we are...hope everyone has had a nice week as well.

Taste:

Irish Soda Bread with runny honey and slightly salty butter....Salted Roast Almonds with drinks at Malmaison bar .....Bread and Butter pudding with caramelised banana and creme anglais...Strong and restorative Yorkshire tea...florally sweetness of Turkish Delight.

Sight:

Wonderful paper package as part of a paper swap with Camilla ...Met Sharon yesterday and had a lovely long chat over coffee at The Museum of Scotland...Inside of Red Door gallery....Saturday Kitchen programme on BBC1....Snow, earlier in the week, deep and crisp and even :)

Sound:

St Patricks day antics and hilarity...The silent swish of movements in unison at Tai Chi class....a mix CD from Shari ...the hum of my computer as I catalogued and invoiced orders...Laughter from my tiny great auntie who had me to stay....*Silence* as I had a few music free days....

Smell:

Smoke in the bar (roll on the smoking ban!)....Diesel fumes from the buses in Edinburgh....Narcissi, crushed by the snow and then rescued and brought indoors.....Snow, the clean air....Coffee brewing in the morning today.

Touch:

The chill of strands of pearls.....Crinkle of Tissue paper as I box up jewels....Cold water against linen as I printed doilies....Brand new crisp Filofax pages to help organise my life!....Paisley wool shawl, soft and warm.

Have a great weekend everyone...xox
