Actually, it goes pretty damn well.

Interesting stuff lately included going off to see David Greig's first production as the new creative head at The Lyceum theatre in Edinburgh. If The Suppliant Women is anything to go by, we're in for some intereresting times. I liked this review, but it did seem to get positive judgements just about everywhere.

Other stuff. I have a new car, a BMW 3 series touring this time, since I've decided I need extra space for property moving (more below) but the sensible aspect of it is balanced by having some nice toys, like 4 wheel drive and adaptive cruise control.

I've now bid on three properties in Edinburgh, and not closed on any of them, for various reasons. Currently looking at another two, one of which is conventional, the other one... isn't. More anon, maybe.

I'm also trying to get my place in Argyll in rentable shape, as part of the restoration of my frankly shonky finances.

Said finances not being helped by a long weekend in Paris I've just booked.

Work this month will be interesting - I'm spending a week in Switzerland and Germany, and there may be a week in Japan in the new year. Oh, and my Japanese Overlords are laying off 1,800 people in the UK, so there's something for me to worry about.

But time to go, as I'm cueing up Young Frankensein for a pre-halloween watch.

Be excellent to each other....

Sounds like things are going quite well - glad to hear it!

New car will allow room for our for out of town guests to tag along once they get thier ducks in a row for another visit to Scotland. ;-)

Yes, fine and well indeed!

Well next time you'll have a tour guide in the East - I'm enjoying Edinburgh quite a bit.

We had such a marvellous time there, and look forward to revisiting, especially since we now have a friend to share time with! So glad it is bringing you enjoyment!

Come back any old time :)

(Though if it's in August, that takes a bit more planning)

As soon as we are able... Altho we are planning to visit Japan in the next four years, which will take some saving... We will definitely be back to visit, tho!
