Down a wee bit more today, good stuff (he said, pretending it’s not all random).
Today being my birfday, I decided a day out was in order. While it was a wee bit foggy here, the forecast suggested it would be clear in Scotland, so I headed to Edinburgh. And sure enough, when I got there, the sky was clear and blue, the sun was shining and everything was lovely, as you can see in this view of Calton Hill:
After a bit of a wander, I decided it was time for some lunch, so I went to my favourite eating place in Edinburgh, the St Giles Cafe Bar. While their website isn’t much to get excited about, the service and food are excellent. As on my previous visits, I had the house special – the St Giles Waffle, on the grounds that if I’d had anything else, I’d have been thinking of the waffle. This consists of a warm Belgian waffle, which would be a nice thing in itself. On top of that goes some nicely crispy bacon, which sounds like a good combination already. But they haven’t finished! On top of the bacon goes some nicely melting Brie, which sounds like a perfect combination. But no, there’s more. They add some perfect little cherry tomatoes and then drizzle maple syrup over it. And there’s a bit of salady leafy stuff as well. Absolutely lovely. And the Tea. Earl Grey. Hot. was good too.
But while I was enjoying my tasty birfday lunch, the weather changed. That fog that had been loitering at home must have caught up with me (probably came by road and got stuck in traffic), and Edinburgh was half invisible, as you can’t see here:
So my wander got a bit redesigned, I went to some indoor thingies, more of which in another post and then got a train home at just after 4pm.

 Exact age a carefully-kept secret, and no it doesn’t need special advanced maths to calculate
