We hae meat

Last Wednesday (29th July) I was invited by my good friend House of Herby to an event by We hae meat. Having just moved to Edinburgh I relied on old faithful, Google maps to get me to the location in Leith (somewhere I’ve only been twice in my life).

I jumped at the chance to book, with no specific date or person in mind to go with, I knew I’d use it at some point! Continue reading
