Somehow the past three weeks went by without my ever replying to your comments, let alone write a new post! First of all, thanks to everyone for commenting on my last post, I really appreciate you sharing your views and tips!
N. and I have actually been off work this week, and trying to make the most of it. We decided not to go anywhere but we have been doing plenty of fun things in Edinburgh. We saw two shows at the Festival this week, Abigoliah and Rob Auton, both very funny and highly recommended.
We also went to the races in Musselburgh, which was great. Definitely something different for me. I think I may have been to horse races before when I was a child, but I don’t remember much. We also bet (small amounts) on the races, which was great fun. (Of course, we didn’t win, we bet a total of £30 and won £16, for a loss of £14.)
Yesterday we went to IKEA to get some more things for our apartment. We finally got an office chair, another set of sheets, and some other odds and ends.
I hung out with my best friend T. twice this past week. She moved back to Germany today after finishing her Master’s degree. I’ll miss having her here, it was nice to live in the same city, even if it was just for a few months. Who knows if that will ever happen again.
On Sunday, we are doing a boat tour on the Forth with N.’s mum, so fingers crossed that the weather will be nice.
And then there are our never-ending problems with the bathroom. I could probably write a big, long rant about that and maybe I will. We all know writing can be like therapy, and the bathroom has truly been driving me nuts. It doesn’t help that our landlord has been an absolute ass through all of this.
Anyway, this is just a short update on what I’ve been up to. Hopefully, I will get around to sharing more stories soon, I still have loads of pictures to share from back when my parents were here and from the races earlier this week.
