Dear Diary
today the sun shone. Yes you read that correctly, the sun shone here in Edinburgh. The rest of the country, well those bits south of here, according to the Met Office, have had a drought and heatwave, whilst we have taken up swimming as our method of transportation. Last Friday, we - MrV, the FB, the Count, Ig and I, had an appointment in Morningside. It started to rain on our way there, and by the time we were ready to leave we had a fully fledged thunderstorm on our hands complete with torrential rain and hail. It was lovely. Especially when we had to go outside and head home. Crossing Morningside Road was not unlike fording a rather fast running river, and bloody cold too. We ran up the road and headed for Waitrose only to find the staff there desperately mopping the floor as the supermarket started to flood.
But today the sun is shining and it is glorious outside.
I'll miss Edinburgh when we leave. It's been a good three years living here. I'll miss my friends and family, the view in Winter accross the Meadows to Arthur's Seat, the Botanics, the Museum, even the tourists wandering about. I won't miss the mice though. Nope, not at all.

So where are you going this time? And why do you keep moving? None of my business, I know. I'm just nosey.

We're moving to Perthshire - no not Crieff for the simple reason that we want our own place to live & not ne renting any more. Alas Edinburgh is right out of our price range especially where we live now.

Not being completely sure where I would find Perthshire, an internet search revealed that "Perthshire is one of the best holiday destinations in Scotland and the UK". Guess I'll be seeing you next Summer then :)
