Most of the day spent away from the City Chambers today - wonderful!
My parents were over from deepest, darkest Salsburgh to spend the day with us (good web-site about the village here, showing the Primary School I attended!).
Lazy morning wondering around Harrison Park and the adjoining canal (just 5-minutes from the flat) ... huge improvements in this area just in the decade or so I've been living locally - both playgrounds in the park fully renewed and the canal towpath upgraded. I spent an inordinate amount of time around here when junior was a baby and he still loves it aged 9! Long may it last.
Afternoon, and we set off to the National Museum of Scotland, which was very busy with large visiting Groups - still very enjoyable.
Mobile 'phone didn't ring once all day - absolute bliss :-)
