I think we have managed to totally forget to tell you guys that we managed to book the skittle alley at the back of the Sheep Heid!
Tuesday 27th, from 5-7, we have the whole alley to ourselves. We can invite other people, or it can be just us.
We booked it a few weeks ago, and that was the only time available. As far as I know, we don't have any plans to do anything else that evening. So yay!

Right, train prices are insane! I don't think we want to pay around £220 (for the group). That would be an absolute minimum, involving booking well in advance. There's tickets costs several times that...
I was looking at hire cars, and using this place we could hire a 7-seater for the day for £112. As far as I can figure, fuel costs might be around £60 or so. It's about a three-hour drive, so we could pick up the car at 8-ish, leave by 9, be in York for lunch at 12, have the whole afternoon for wandering around, going to the Minster etc then get dinner somewhere before setting off back at 7 or 8. It's feasible, I think.

1 week, five days and 13.5 hours until we fly out :D :D :D

Gosh, I am getting so excited! Well, I mean to almost unbearable levels! It's worse than Christmas! lol maybe that's because it's more exciting than Christmas?

So obviously we're going to be having quite a hectic first week what with camping and then the naming ceremony and so I was thinking that maybe the first day we're there we could just spend it having a wander around the streets of Edinburgh. That's what Mum and I did the first day we were there last time and it was really nice. Just gave us a chance to relax after the flight and get a feel for the place and see a few little things. And since the rest of the week will be go, go, go, it'll be nice to just take it down a notch. What do you think?
