This morning started with heading off to church to St Martin’s, the church where I grew and Dad used to work. Very nice to catch up with old friends and see some wonderful young kids running riot there!
Then after lunch, Nick to his girls back to Milngavie and I headed off to see my friend Scott, his son Calum, and John (who I meet once a year […]
It was actually a delightful day (weather-wise) here today, though for some reason, the same temperature here always feels much colder!
I am having fun seeing how much my Droid can do despite not having phone service. The answer is actually rather a lot. Lots of Wi-Fi here and the GPS still works!

The big question now is, what do they need to do in their last game against The Netherlands in order to make it into the play offs to get to South Africa?
Here’s what FIFA has to say:
All 53 countries will […]
After a wonderfully lazy day, we went around to Scott’s to watch Scotland play Norway with him and his Calum. The game was dreadful as Scotland lost 4-0 and are basically assured of not going to the World Cup in 2010.
Life got better with some very fine Fish and Chips.
But then for some reason we watched the Princess Diaries… Oh dear, dear, dear…
The view was lovely though!

Today, for Calum’s Birthday, we all slept in and then did some prezzie opening (along with celebrating Dad’s Birthday in July at the same time)
Then we headed out to have Iona try out a few “real” oboes. Who knew, oboes in Britain have different fingering from the rest of the world! We did though find a brand that she really liked the sound of, we’ll just have to head into NYC looking for a second hand oboe shop (I have heard rumours of some).
Then it was off for Calum’s birthday treat, going to see Mark Thomas. He’s a very politically active comedian who […]
Another varied day around Edinburgh and its assorted festivals.
We started the morning off at St. John’s. Where Dad first worked when we came to Edinburgh and I had a chance to meet up with my pre-school teacher the best part of 40 years on!
Then we wandered around town and down by Holyrood Palace to see all sort of street performers and Fringe acts promoting their wares. Much fun and much walking.
