Look up Look down during a nice break

For my penultimate pair I’ve captured a lovely break in the middle of visits to the dressing-up, cake decoration and craft supply shops.

up-down-penultimate

and rather surprised that it took me until week 51 to think of including a selfie in the up shot!  I have included hands, feet, shadows and reflections but never a real selfie. 

This cafe has great coffee and a nice busy buzz with people working on laptops and having work meetings, as well as reading and chatting.  I enjoy the stripped back architectural feel with bare concrete and bricks and re-used school tables and chairs  (for those of you with family in Edinburgh its the Brew Lab, near the uni)

and in other news – I posed earlier this year about applying to be a volunteer for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow next year and I just received my invitation to join the commonwealth association team which provides support and assistance to the team oraganisations – that’s all I know for now.  Orientation training is in March

My son is living in Edinburgh for two years and he loves that coffee shop! We went there with him when we went to visit last year so I know exactly where you are talking about!

We're off to the airport this afternoon, so it won't be long before I can ask! It certainly looks like they make a pretty cup of coffee

Lovely pair of images! That coffee looks wonderful.
Congratulations on being invited to volunteer at the Games. That should be fun! I look forward to reading about it here on your blog.

I did some feet selfies but never a look up selfie. I love shots like this which capture every day life.
