The Butlers finally arrived in Edinburgh late yesterday, travelling through a landscape replete with grey rain and bereft of oasthouses. First priority of course, was a decent cup of tea. Thompson chose his usual Assam, I plumbed for a refreshing Oolong, Hopkins got carried away with a strawberry and lotus flower concoction. Despite it being Saturday night, we were soon meeting friends old and new, and taking our first commissions. It seems that we are in for a busy time!
