    ... pretty good. After the castle we went to meet up with some friends who were in Edinburgh (Kara and Ben). We watched a few of the fringe festival acts that were inside of an old church. Was a little bit random drinking cider/beer inside a church but that's the Fringe Festival for you. For those who don't know, the Fringe Festival is on at the same time as the Military Tattoo is on. It goes for 2/3 weeks and starts at the beginning of August. It's basically a huge entertainment ...

The room had plenty of space for us but I decided to move the little bed--maybe for feng shui ...

    ... Jonney, named Damian, decided to come up to Edinburgh just for the festival night of NYE so I had a buddy to share that experience. And was it ever an experience. Mostly lots of drinking, but also, an entire city all comes together in the cold for a street party. You may be saying to yourself, "isn't it quite cold in Scotland that time of year", yes, but cramming that many people together is actually quite warm, and a good way of making lots of friends, which we ...

    ... couple of days later. In the meantime I asked if she needed a hand with the spreadsheet – she said she wished she could get someone to do it for her! Umm, hello! So in short, I have been "working" (if you know what I mean) for her for the past few days.

    Met up with the landlord’s Mum (Jane! Ha! My middle name if you didn’t know...) a day later to view the flat. Lovely. Oh and it turns out that’s her middle name too not her first ...
