East coast railway

We have had a fun filled few days in London seeing my brother and his girlfriend, hubby's siblings and our new little nephew - adorable. Ate some good British food with flare at Bennets Oyster Bar in Battersea and amazing Japanese in Lavender hill. This morning we took the train to Scotland to spend a week with my parents in just 4 1/2 hrs you can be in Edinburgh from London much faster than driving. We tucked into a bacon sandwich with a cuppa on the train and enjoyed the countryside along the way.

Crossing the forth rail bridge looking at road bridge crossing into Fife.

This evening we ate Scottish salmon with vegetables, homemade cake and Jasmine used my mums knife and folk from when she was little :-)

What do you have from the past in your kitchen ?
