    We stayed there for four days and had a lot of fun with the other tourists. It is close to the city centre (walking distance) and the staff is really friendly and it's cheap and clean. The bathroom's are a bit small and I would not buy the breakfast because it's expensive for not much. Rather buy some stuff and prepare it in the kitchen.

    ... at stupidly cheap prices. Who could blame them for staying?
    I nearly did, but I had paid for shows so I thought I should go.

    There are a lot of big thick beards in Scotland too. I think natural selection via the local cold climate has killed off any genetic lines unable to sustain vast amounts of facial hair as a survival mechanism.

    Anyway, I'm rugged up under several layers and I have some tickets. Next step is to download the EdFringe ...

    Yep - the job is going well - will be monotonous but it's a job and of course, me being me, I'll do my damned-est.

    Thought I'd let you all know a joke going around at the moment...

    "Prince George has already done 3 things off my bucket list and so young!
    1) He's a millionaire
    2) He's visited the Queen
    3) He's sucked Kate Middleton's... (I'm not going to put the word and also, the joke would work better if I was a male - but you get the gist!)
