MapHI EVERYONE!!! ITS AINHOA HERE, BACK FROM HOLIDAYS AND READY TO TELL YOU WHAT HAS HAPPENNED ALL THIS TIME, THAT IS, FROM JULY (DATE OF OUR LAST JOURNAL ENTRY) TILL NOW...
SUMMER IN EDI WAS FANTASTIC, ALTHOUGH WORKING, WE MANAGED TO DO MANY THINGS AND SEE NEW PLACES AROUND SCOTLAND.
AFTER THE VISIT OF LEO MY PAPI AND ASUN CAME TO EDI AND STAYED WITH US FOR FIVE DAYS.
WE WENT TO ST ANDREWS FOR A DAY, THE REST OF THE TIME WAS SPENT AORUND TOWN. YOU WILL SEE PHOTOS OF THAT DAY SOON.
PAPI AND ASUN LOVED IT HERE, SPECIALLY THE MILD NICE WEATHER WE GOT BY THEN (FOR THEY WERE ROASTING BACK IN SPAIN!!!)
HAD LUNCH IN MANY LOCAL PUBS, ENJOYED NICE WINES AND LOADS OF HAGGIS NEEPS AND TATTIES (SURPRISINGLY MY DAD LOVED THEM!)
AFTER THEIR VISIT, IT WAS TIME FOR MAMI TO COME AND STAY IN THE LOVELY LODGE FOR MOST OF AUGUST, THAT IS FOR THE FESTIVAL, WHICH WAS AMAZING BY THE WAY!!!!
WALKING ALONG THE ROYAL MILE DURING THE MORNINGS (WORKING IN THE EVENINGS...BOOF!) WE COULD ENJOY THE MANY ARTSY EVENTS THAT WERE GOING ON WITH NO STOPPING!!!
MAMI AND I WENT TO SEE MANY THINGS INCLUDING A ROCKING CONCERT OF MANU CHAO (VERY VERY ROCKING!!!!) AND THE MILITARY TATTOO. I TOOK HER TO OUR LOVELY ARTHURS SEAT AND ANOTHER DAY WE WENT TO NORTH BERWICK TO SEE THE GANNETS AND PUFFINS (PUFFINS????WHICH PUFFINS????) NESTING IN BASS ROCK...THAT WAS A DAY TO REMEMBER!
WELL WELL IT WAS LONG AGO NOW AND I CAN'T QUITE REMEMBER ALL THE THINGS WE DID, BUT WITH THE PHOTOS IT WILL BE EASIER TO EXPLAIN ;-)
MAMI LEFT EDI AT THE END OF AUGUST...AFTER HAVING A GREAT TIME TOGETHER....SHE REALLY ENJOYED THE CITY AND LEFT VERY HAPPY...AND I MISSED HER A LOT FOR THE VERY FIRST DAYS!
SEPTEMBER WAS A BUSY MONTH FOR BOTH SONIA AND I. WILL EXPLAIN.
SONIA HAD PLANNED TO LEAVE EDI BY THE THIRD WEEKOF SEPTEMBER, AFTER THE ARRIVAL OF DALE (WHO HAD BEEN TRAVELLING AROUND EUROPE FOR ABOUT THREE MONTHS) AND SO WE HAD TO CLOSE DOWN THE LOVELY LODGE. SONIA AND DALE ARE NOW LIVING IN BORNEMOUTH, DOWN SOUTH OF ENGLAND. MORE OR LESS SETTLED BY NOW, WITH THEIR FLAT AND THEIR NEW JOBS...IT IS ANOTHER STORY ...SHE WILL TELL YOU SOON ALL ABOUT IT!!!
AS FOR ME, I MOVED WITH BETH, MY MANAGER AT WORK. AM NOW LIVING CLOSE TO THE CENTER, IN A VERY NICE AREA BY THE WATER OF LEITH....REALLY NICE (BUT.....OH MY GOD HOW MUCH I MISS THE VIEWS OF THE LOVELY LODGE!!!!)
TWO DAYS AFTER I MOVED, NANDY AND I WENT ON HOLIES. TOOK THE CAR -KORDY-FOR A LONG TRIP EDI-BARCELONA, STOPPING IN AMSTERDAM AND PARIS ON THE WAY DOWN AND BILBAO AND LONDON ON THE WAY UP! IT HAS BEEN A GREAT GREAT TRIP, CAN'T BELIEVE WE ARE NOW BACK....LESS THAN THREE HOURS AN I WILL BE WORKING AGAIN!!!!! ########!!!!
SO THAT IS....!
WILL PUT MANY PHOTOS WITHIN THE NEXT FEW DAYS...AND THIS WILL BE SURELY THE END OF THIS PAGE, FOR SONIA AND I ARE NOW LIVING APART.
THANKS TO ALL THOSE WHO FOLLOWED OUR ADVENTURES!

TILL THEN, CHEEEEEEERIOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
