mince pies found!

At last - managed to track down a box of mince pies at Safeway in Berwick-upon-Tweed....

For those of you wondering about the relocation from Newcastle, we were en route from Edinburgh, after a fabulous weekend wandering around the granite buildings. Really impressed by the city - great shops, good food, and some wonderful art galleries.

If you get the chance, try (a) Cafe Mavi on the corner of Bread Street (tiny takeaway run by an Italian guy who made the best hot meatball subs I've ever had), and (b) the set dinner at the beautifully modernist Point Hotel (also on Bread Street). The food's great (if you get the chance opt for the haggis roll), and the lamps on the ceiling have to be seen to be believed!
