I hope you had a nice quiet weekend.
I had a lovely weekend where lots of uneventful stuff happened, which I consider to be better than nothing happening, and much better than stressful events happening.
On Friday we went to eat at a cheap Malaysian restaurant that had Pearl Tea. I haven't had pearl tea (boba) in a while, and this was the first place I'd come across in Edinburgh that served it so that was exciting. I also picked up my knitting again. I didn't get much done - only picked up some stitches around an armhole - but hey, it's something.
On Saturday we looked at some art at a gallery and on the way we saw a film shoot. We had nothing better to do, so us and like 50 other people stood around and watched these poor actors (I don't think they're famous) running up and down the stairs for like 15 minutes. The stage hands seemed quite amused that such a large crowd had formed.
The city is also getting much more crowded! The fringe festival is next week and tents are popping up everywhere, including a block really near to my house!
The flyers outside are for a circus, so I guess it's a temporary circus tent!
In the upcoming weeks you can probably expect lots of photos of crowds and blog posts where I whinge about being jostled and elbowed as I try to cope with sharing Edinburgh with an extra 400,000 people! It better be worth it ...
