I went to Edinburgh recently and two things stood out - that Harvey Nichols like stationary (see dress and tree made out of pegs/pencils), and the oval tray of gold charm bracelets in a pawn shop window. Sometimes find pawn shops a bit sad, as I always invent heartbreaking stories for why people's engagement rings are sparkling at me from the shop window. Charm bracelets are particularly personal I think, as they take so long to fill up. I have a silver one, that has mostly been contributed to by my Cornish Grandma, with charms such as a pasty and tin mine. (One other thing that stood out - Men in Kilts. No thanks.)

I met Hannah for lunch and she made my day. She had got her days mixed up and had left the house in under ten minutes, thinking she was late for a seminar, which resulted in this modern Dickensian look - trainer sock and buckle shoes. Hoping she does it on purpose now, it made me laugh. A lot.
