I was thinking...

Don't know if you guys know or not but Barb and Co went camping over Easter and it made me want to go camping again. Christian and I would love to go away for a night or two somewhere and I got to thinking that maybe we could all go camping! I love camping so much and I think it would be awesome with you guys :D

Places we should go.

Camera Obscura. Definitely. It's SO awesome, and we didn't go last time, I don't think.
What sort of things do you guys like? The Dean Gallery is great, even if just for the gigantic metal statue of Vulcan. The Museum of Childhood is fun, as are the other museums. Ooh! I should see if there's an event at Lauriston Castle again! And it's just round the corner (sort of) from Cramond, which has beaches.

SO excited!

Did I mention?

That I'm ridiculously excited? No? I forgot to mention that part? Well, I am :D

And Flora, where's your post? Come on woman, share your ideas!!! ;-)

The invasion is coming!


I AM SO BLOODY EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*cough* ok, so now that that's out of my system...

I've asked Christian if there's anything in particular he wants to do and he just shrugged and said he's happy to go along with whatever. When asked if there's anything he doesn't want to do, I got much the same response.

So, things that haven't already been mentioned but I would like to do :)

*Climb the 'big hill' again. I know this is pretty much a given since Flora lives on the side of Arthur's Seat but it doesn't hurt to mention it...

*The science centre thingy in Glasgow has always looked like so much fun whenever it's been blogged about and since I'd like to see a little bit of Glasgow (so I can confirm I like Edinburgh better - I already do but it I guess I should base it on fact lol) maybe we could do a day trip there? I doubt we'll see much on our trip from the airport.

* A really bad movie night. We are getting into the spirit of things this weekend when we watch Mega Shart Vs Giant Octopus but you have so many I want to see! I'll also bring Night of the Living Dorks along but Christian has said he'll refuse to watch that again lol.

*Perhaps we could have another genuine Scottish bbq? You know, just so Christian gets the full experience. That of course will need to be scheduled on a day when it's most likely to rain lol

There's not a whole lot else I guess. Obviously the festival stuff depends on what we can get tickets to etc etc but the circus did sound good. Also, maybe we could hire a car for a couple of days and have an overnight trip somewhere? I don't really know where to...are there any castles you can stay overnight in? :D Cos that would be awesome! lol
But I'm just really looking forward to wandering about, seeing it all again. You guys have no idea how much I love your city. Actually, maybe it's as much as you guys love Perth lol. But I'm pretty sure I wouldn't love it nearly as much if you guys didn't live there :)

It's such a shame Eurovision isn't on...

I'm sure the boys will want to play lots of xbox games or wii games or whichever games are available lol

Oh, and I want lots of cuddles!!! I know it will be a lot easier having Christian there with me but I'm going to be missing Myles so much :(

Oooh, somewhere for us to eat. Is that tappas place still open? That was rather nice I thought :)
I wonder if we'll consume quite as much pizza this time? I'm sure Flora and I will get over tired again and snap at each other about 2am because I won't try black pudding lol. Christian is quite a fussy eater too so I'm sure we'll drive you both batty but hopefully we'll figure it out.

I'm really looking forward to Zeph's baby naming ceremony, it's going to be great. And at least you'll have lots of people to help set it up Ro!

We shall have to have a cocktail night at some stage and make fruit tingles! Yummo! Getting pissed with you two is towards the top of my priority list since I don't think I've done it properly yet. Certainly didn't happen when I was there and I don't think I got drunk when Will went missing since I wanted to make sure Barb could lol.

Okie, there was somethng else I was going to mention now but can't quite put my finger on it...I'm stupidly excited about getting my bus pass thingy with the photo but I know it wasn't that...I'm also excited about getting to have tablet again (even though I can buy it down the road here) but it's better when it's proper Scottish it silly to be this excited about going to a Tesco? You're shops are so different...

I think I'm just babbling now so I'll bring this to an end. I miss you guys, and really can't wait to come see you!

Ok, so we're all getting extremely excited! This is a place for us to make suggestions for places to go, things to do, places to eat and so on, so that we all know what we've all been discussing...

1) Portobello beach - it's not on a par with Aussie beaches but it's the best we've got!

2) Linlithgow Palace - nice and castly, we could also walk round the loch.

3) Zeph's naming ceremony is going to be on Sunday 25th July, probably afternoon.

4) Fancy dress party - Friday 6th August, as a finale to the trip?

5) Mary King's Close
