Today at Cafe Blend – Adventures in Birmingham

Glasgow May 28-31st 2010 (Part Two)

Light Rain Breakfast is included and although I’m not one for early eating, I’m not one than can resist food either. I feel a little self-conscious walking into breakfast with a kilt-like skirt, probably not the best choice for an English girl in Glasgow. I’m a little irked that the waitress assumed I did not […]
