I know I've taken my sweet time - but here it finally is: some Edinburgh picspam!

I don't have much, yet, because I've been more concerned with non-touristic, non-scenic errands and places so far, but I hope you like what's there.



Home Sweet Home

Home Sweet Home - my bank needed to know the year of construction for our contents insurance and it turns out to be 1749/1750!

Olympics 2012

You thought the Olympics are in London? Well, the football is right here.

Backside

The shoddy backside ;)

Castle from Princes Street

The castle as seen from Princes Street, the New Town's main shopping street.

Primary School

Tani's School.

Museum on Canongate

One of the quaint little museums on Canongate.

Parliament old and new

The old and new Parliament building side by side.

Entrance to Holyrood

Entrance to Holyrood Palace, just across from the Parliament.



There was supposed to be more, but the upload function dropped the ball on me.

Will edit later!!

Going up for 2 weeks for the festivals and seeing the city as a delayed honeymoon.

Ooooh! Nice!

I don't quite know whether I am looking forward to the Fringe or not. The area I live in will be a complete zoo.

Would you like to meet up for a coffee somewhere or dinner at my place (more or less authentic curry, depending on whether my husband makes it to Scotland in time or not)?

I totally understand if you have better things to do on your honeymoon, though!!

So effing jealous! I would sell my soul to live there. *sighs*

GORGEOUS! I'm glad you're finally there and tucked in (as it were). ;)

With the cost of living here, I might be selling my soul at some point...

Today we'll get a dining table and chairs (the one we have is minuscule) and a much needed book shelf.

So beautiful! Goodness!

No wonder people make fun of the cookie cutter houses over here.

Thank you!

You should see the newer residential areas - the UK is a cookie cutter house haven! I think it started with the industrial revolution and the need to accommodate all those miners and textile mill workers. Look at where Severus Snape is supposed to be from:

Thank you!

If I hang out at The Elephant Room long enough, do you think she might drop by every now and then, for old time's sake?

I can definitely understand why!

I desperately want to go on a day trip to the highlands before the school year starts but I am so broke at the moment...

Oh, such beautiful pictures! Glad to hear your move went well and you're getting settled in! Also... *snicker* they couldn't paint the back of those rings, too? How cheap! ^^

Thank you!

That's what I was thinking! Especially since a lot of tourists walk up to the Royal Mile, walk along it to the castle and then take this road down back to the New Town. They really should have invested into some more paint.

Thank you!

Yes! You totally must!

But I guess that there are loads of other countries that you would like to see first :)

Thank you!

Having been here before for the meetup helped so much!

How are you doing with your wedding preparations? I thought of you yesterday when I saw white on white striped stockings on eBay :)

He he, I can imagine! Edinburgh will always be my fandom home :)

Good, thank you! Aww ♥ I had my hair trial last week and my make up trial yesterday, when I also had my eyebrows done (shit me did that hurt!), I've got one more eyebrow appointment due as well as my nails, my bridesmaids are booked in for their final fittings and I have one more wedding dress fitting to go! Need to meet with the vicar, reception, florist and balloon-ist to clarify details as well as have our pre-wedding shoot with our photographer :) Oh, and need to sort out Kai's ring!

It's just the little details now, but there are so many and so little time D: None of the men have started their speeches either! That's getting me panicky as I had a dream where they all forgot and ended up winging it!

It's so close now and we're so excited! :D But time really is of the essence! ♥
