Harry Dresden

Edinburgh Photos (3)

Even if you don't really know much about the city, most of us have heard of Edinburgh Castle. I went there on my trip, and really found it a fascinating place - complete with the Scottish War Memorial, 3 museums, a Norman Chapel and various Tudor buildings. Yes, it was a full day, but still hard to take in - and even harder to try to share in just a few photos.

However, while there I did try to collect a souveneir, or two ... but sadly I only had one ticket for the return home!!

And, for those who don't recognise the icon - In the Dresden Files, the council of wizards is situated in a tunnel network under the city, and especially the castle
Procrastinate - daleks.

OOooops .... I Am All Behind Again!

9 How obsessive are you about your bins?
We have a 2 bin system, so it's easy to use ... so I like to recycle as much as I can

10 Have you ever been up on the roof?
No - I am not good with heights.
However, I have been on the roof of the tower of Exeter Cathedral (but it has a wall around, so I could cope)

11 What's the largest vehicle you have ever driven?
My licence lets me drive a 7 1/2 ton truck. Dad and I hired one some years ago to collect a load of stuff when his mum was having work done. So, an all-day drive, each way, and we did a 50:50 split

12 Have you ever met your doppelganger?
I pity whoever is "me" ... so would be too scared to meet them!

13 What is the best certificate that you have ever been awarded?
My degree was pretty special
However I also just received a certificate for my 100 length swim for Guide Dogs for the Blind ... that was a special swim, so glad I have the certificate as well.


I will aim to do better ;)
HRH The Queen

Edinburgh Photos (4)

I may not have been able to get to Holyrood as the Queen was in residence, but I did go to see the Royal Yacht Britannia.

It is certainly very homely in many ways, so I can see why the Queen & Prince Philip loved it so much, and were upset when it's working life was over. Most of the royal area had been designed by the two of them, which was very nice to see.
