What could be a beautiful place is let down by a number of small things that are missing or never thought of. This apartment is very modern and a number of the fixtures are expensive but :-
- Shower drain was blocked, the trap had never been cleaned since new. We could have been flooded out.
- No soap dish in the shower
- Stacks of stuff missing from the kitchen.
- no elevator from underground car park,
- large parts of the complex still a construction site.
I gather this place has been open for 12mnths but the building has never been finished.
Modern appointments - fridge, dishwasher, washer
LCD TV & DVD player - with 40+ channels

... the rain had eased off a bit and we were able to wander around the Castle without too much rain interference.
Again, the abundance of treasures horded from around the world stirred a sense of repugnance at the thought of how a lot of these artifacts would have been acquired. It must be a real sense of surrealism to be HM The Queen and know that all of this stuff is yours! Not cheap to maintain, either!

Tonight we went to the Tron for dinner, we both had a veggie stack with roast veggies which was alright but the girl working there couldn't of pulled a smile if she tried! Monday (13th) we started the morning off by doing a new sandemans tour of Edinburgh. It was ten thousand times better than the one we had in Liverpool. Our tour guide was a Scottish man and he was full ...
... door nodded gravely at it. “Ah, Edinburgh,” he said, “where umbrellas go tae die.” Of all the Scottish people we met in the city, he was the Scottiest. You might have figured this out by now, but the weather in Edinburgh is some of the most wildly unpredictable I’ve ever seen. It’ll be perfectly sunny one moment, but bring a torrential downpour the next. It was beautiful and clear as we left for the castle the next morning, and I said ...
... a big loop of the gardens but couldn't find a way in. I then realised there were no people inside the gardens, I guess this was the ultimate in 'keep off the grass'. My fingernails grow really fast. I made sure I gave them a damn good clipping before I left, but here I was, only 2 weeks in, with fingernails that could take out an eye. I had to be careful when picking my nose not to give myself a frontal lobotomy at the same time. So I popped into one ...
... and John went on a date, and we had an absolute ball. We had bought a copy of Wreck It Ralph, so we all watched that together snuggled up on the couch and cushions on the floor, which was just lovely. The boys were in bed and just about to fall asleep when Claire and John came back, so we all hung out for a little while longer before the boys were persuaded to go to sleep.
We enjoyed a couple of drams with Claire and John before heading back to our apartment; what a great day!
