No I have not had a meltdown myself although I am close to it tying up loose ends with the shop closing. I am talking about my teacup candles. Out of all the products in the shop the teacup candles are the only thing I make, ashamedly. Well today I got the wax I ordered so I decided to do a marathon candle making sesh. Everything was going well until some magazines fell of a shelf onto the teacups which hadn't set and the wax went everywhere. I didn't realise wax was so hard to clean up. I deffo wont be getting up to any mischief with wax like Madonna in the film body of evidence if it takes an age to clean. Eventually I managed to clear the wax and wash some of it down the sink which then hardened and blocked the sink. So another half hour later I finally unblocked the sink. My lesson is leave the making to the professionals.

So I headed up to Glasgow on Saturday night full of the intentions of running a 10k on the Sunday morning. But after a meal at Wagamammas on the Saturday night the nerves kicked in and when I woke up on Sunday I completely chickened out and ashamedly never did the run. So after a bout of feeling a bit guilty I decided to be productive and go up the west end for some vintage shopping and cakes. We started of at the Two Figs for a late lunch of cocktails and curry. We then ventured up byres road stopping to check out the vintage shops where I was strangely drawn to bumbags and tribal bags I must be wanting to create a 80s rave hippy vibe thankfully I was talked out of purchasing said bumbag.
Then after all our browsing we were parched and went to Auntie M's in the De Courcys Arcade. It was decorated like a 50s diner and had lots of lovely cakes. I had lemon and ginger and Kate had chocolate and pistachio and Pam had coffee and walnut. Good big slices and fine cup of tea. Although I didnt run I still had an ace time. Maybe stick to cakes and shopping instead of runs.
