Edinburgh's Olympic rings
Just to prove that Edinburgh castle is still there, despite its disappearing act in my last post, here's a topical glimpse from one of our very few sunny days. 20 June to be precise.
I have to admit that I'm not really feeling the Olympic excitement. Ours is not a household that takes notice of big sporting events, apart perhaps of Scotland losing at rugby. My lack of interest has nothing to do with the Olympics being in London rather than in Scotland - in fact I'm very glad they're there and not here. I'm much more of a Winter Olympics lass - give me an afternoon of watching the Norwegian cross-country biathlon team and I'm happy. I dare say however that we will all be pulled in, inexorably, by the time of the opening ceremony.
