On Friday we had heard that Daba had taken over the management of the Bull and Butcher. So I thought we had better pay the place a visit. Called Tony and Barbara to see if they wanted Sunday lunch there.
Yes, Daba is running the B&B with his girlfriend. Ricky was still there in the kitchen cooking. We all had traditional Sunday lunch and came away well pleased.
Up early in the morning into work. Had to wait quite a while to get into the office, seems quite a few busses, trains, and the bridge were not running.
Evening went out with a group of friends for rather too many drinks in the local pubs around Grassmarket. Then down to Broughton Road and the Phoenix. Afterwards back to the hotel for a nightcap and bed.
Tuesday flew up to Edinburgh for a planning meeting on Wednesday. A very strong wind was forecast for Scotland, in fact during the night there were gusts of 124mph. The flight was rather rough as we came into land, with some of the passengers puking up. Need les to say I was unaffected by the turbulence.
Had to take a taxi into the city, no busses at the bus stop and a long queue of people. Taxi driver said we would have to take detour with the main road being closed because of storm damage. In the event this had been cleared up by the time we got to the location.
Arrived at the Apex, and had a glass of wine and a Sandwich for supper, then onto Whistle Binkies for some rock music.
