Last week we headed up to Edinburgh for a family farewell. My very dear Grandfather passed away at the good ole’ age of 90 and we made sure to give him a great send off. The most polite, smartly dressed and charming man I have ever known, he was a pure honour to have as a Gramps. Always with long stories to tell and a bigger social circle than many people half his age, Bobby Simpson was just brilliant. I shall endeavour to pay tribute with a blog post dedicated just to him. But for now I have to adjust to the fact that he is no longer here.
I absolutely adore Edinburgh, having visited it often all my life to see family, it is a city that has totally captured my heart. Such a damn handsome place and with a great sense of vitality, I just kinda wish it wasn’t so cold and gusty there! James and I stayed in a cute apartment and explored the cobbled streets together, which was just ace seeing as we never get time off together. We ate breakfast both days in Earthy which I love and the food was heavenly. We also popped to the glorious Harvey Nichols for a peek and to stock up on my Chanel make-up.
Edinburgh, a grand city indeed; a perfect place to say farewell to my Gramps.
