The Maisie expedition - part 2
Doesn't it gladden your heart to see an independent bookshop? I had to buy the Giveaway copy of 'Maisie comes to Morningside' as close to Morningside as I could get, and that meant The Children's Bookshop in Bruntsfield Place. Have a look at their website for the bookshop, and also for their publishing arm, Fidra publishers, which specialises in reprinting children's books for a new audience.
One title in particular in their window display caught my eye. If you're a Scottish child who plays the bagpipes, you need to find somewhere to practise that won't disturb the neighbours:
And just as I was getting on the number 23 to wend my way back to Canonmills, I spied this bit of Scottish life which I had to capture. Even tho I was stepping onto the bus and the driver was enquiring whether I wished to avail myself of the opportunity to travel at that moment ("Are ye gettin on the bus then, hen?").
Saturday morning + wedding season = kilts in the streets.
