You'll have had your tea.
After my superb wee visit to Edinburgh, I've been home for a couple of days. Time to do some paperwork, time to run (my belt now has to be one notch bigger!), time for phone conversations with friends I have no time to see, time for baths and afternoon naps. Time for all these things are running out.
Today I have to spend some time on gown-up things, like bank accounts and paperwork. So much paperwork, organising lots of bits of paper to allow me into a country, one that I am not even sure I want to go to.
Tomorrow I am off to London town. I travel the world, sometimes alone, my first time in Africa for example, not a problem. London? I am getting mini heart palpitations. I am armed with maps; maps to the embassy, maps to my friends, notes to myself about the maps, the said paperwork and telephone numbers. On my last visit I was reminded, "We don't speak on the underground." Maybe it has changed now. Apparently we Brits are friendly now, or for the Olympics at least.
I am a Edinbugger!
