The Circus is Coming! I Love Edinburgh in August!

I am very excited! It is that time of year again. The time of year when Scotland's capital goes mad and a large assortment of weird and wonderful people descend to cheer the grand old lady that is Edina right up!

The famous Spiegletent Going Up!
I have just come back from a wee trip into town and found lots of workmen making the final preparations for Edinburgh Festival and Fringe (not to mention the Arts Fest., the DanceBase Fest....) and I am now raring to go for the big kick off on Friday! 

And thanks to the 100% lovely folks at (a fab one stop shop for tickets and info about events in Edinburgh), I am going to be out and about, experiencing the festival and reporting right back to you on what I have found.  From dance, to street films, comedy to cabaret; I am up for just about anything.

I totally love the festival madness and think it sums up what life is really about; fun, laughs and being interested in the world.  I can't wait to shake off my usual chores and all that taking care of visiting relatives, and to start to feel like I am 21 again for a whole month!

But all of this joie de vivre needn't come at a high price, I am still going to be thrift conscious and intend to negotiate my way around the festival without breaking the bank.

Just look what I found in St. Andrew's Square in Edinburgh already! I'm looking forward to seeing what else turn's up!

Quite at home in the middle of the city
