An argument the other night with JW, has spurred me on to keep going with this aspect of the project. The argument went something along the lines of, "don't you feel that life is really boring at the moment?" Poor JW made the man-error of attempting to fix the problem, rather than just listening to the moan. Things were said, exasperated looks were exchanged and I gave up the conversation at the point where we were 'discussing' an umbrella holder. Don't ask...
Part of the problem is that saving money and doing new stuff, really don't go hand in hand. In order to do things you often need to buy tickets, get equipment or travel somewhere. So hence my feeling a bit like Miss Jean Brodie, in the prime of my life, all the while sweeping floors and doing laundry! I exaggerate, it just feels like that's all I do sometimes!
So, I have a list of things that I want to do and that won't cost too much money and I intend to get cracking on with them.
|St Giles Cathedral|
St Giles Cathedral, here in Edinburgh, do a series of lunchtime and evening recitals for free (collection at the end). So, I went along and listened to some Bach and some Mendelssohn.
|The Organ; What a Beast|
|A rather impressive interior|
Next up: Cycling to the Scottish Borders.
