Hidden right under your nose...

Friday, 15 February 2013

Well hello there,

Ah Friday, finally delivering the Spring weather I've been longing for; sadly judging by the weather forecast it looks like a short-lived affair, (sacre bleu.) But still I enjoyed the crisp sunshiney Spring day whilst we had it, my first alfresco meal of 2013 (it really has been cold so far this year) toasties, coffee and cake at The Cowane Hospitall Coffee House, which is truly one of Stirling's hidden gems! The owner Sara is lovely and makes the best tablet I've ever tasted, as well as amazing cakes, great prices too, perfect! It's next to the Church of the Holyrude (the one by Stirling castle) it's a fair climb up the hill from town but worth it for the small but perfectly formed menu, yummy cakes and gorgeous views.

I was babysitting my youngest brother today so we then walked down the 'backwalk' by Stirling Castle, which provided us with some stunning views over Stirling and beyond. Stirling can be rather pretty, all in all a rather lovely day, lucky I brought my camera along :)

The clouds look so menacing here, luckily it didn't rain.

The prettiest memorial, tragic but beautiful; it 's to commemorate two young sisters.

Sometimes I do enjoy living in Stirling, the castle sure can be pretty.

I hope Friday has treated you well, I'm looking forward to tomorrow; a day trip to Dundee to catch up with an old friend who I haven't seen in far too long. Then I'll be arriving home to two brand new baby bunny rabbits!! Ahhh I'm so excited, I'll definitely be posing pictures soon :) pre-warning of imminent cuteness, have a great weekend.

Till next time,
