Welcome to Edinburgh
A foggy and frosty morning, and we got caught in heavy traffic on our way to the station this morning. This wasn’t helped by everyone slowing down for non-existent roadworks – the signs from the weekend had not been taken down! We got to the carpark with a minute to spare. I had no hope of making the train, but amazingly I made but alas TT did not. I thought the man running behind me was TT, but when I got on the train it turned out to be someone else! Poor TT didn’t get on as the doors had closed, and he had to wait on the next train – which was running late. Not a good start to his week.
The office was freezing today as the heating had not come on over the weekend. Work was a day of catching up with e-mails, a couple of meetings, my mid-year review, and a wee party to celebrate the forthcoming nuptials of a colleague as it was his last day in the office before his big day.
BB has been a busy lad tonight having made a good start to his homework. I spent ages on the phone to the bank reporting some dodgy transactions on my account which I know nothing about. They assure me they will be dealt with. I want to go back to the days of bank books and cheque books.
At lunchtime I went for a wander in the gloom but made the mistake of heading along Princes Street way. I can’t bring myself to say the “C-word” yet (and my blip will hopefully remain a C-free zone until December), but it is in full swing in central Edinburgh, complete with Elvis belting out Blue Christmas. It was enough to make me run for the hills. I spotted this signage attached to a lamp post which seems fitting as I deal with some kind of cybercrime!
