Edinburgh Award 2009

Went to the presentation for the Edinburgh Award this afternoon ... Chris Hoy was the recipient this year; following in the footsteps of Ian Rankin (2007) and J.K. Rowling (2008).

Thoroughly enjoyable event - and, it has to be said, that Chris Hoy seems remarkably unaffected by his whirlwind of a year ... he gave a very gracious, and down-to-earth acceptance speech and by the number of people who queued to have him sign their programme, I'd say he struck just the right note :-)
