Flew from Luton in the bright warm sunshine, only to land at Edinburgh on a cold cloudy day. Visibility was so poor, we didn’t see the ground until we were down to 100 meters. The weather never cleared up, with low cloud all day, obscuring views of Carlton hill and Edinburgh castle.
Stayed at the Thistle on Leith Walk tonight. Apparently most of the hotels in Edinburgh were full. Managed to get a booking into the Apex City for the following nights.
Met up with Yura Usvyat for a meal at Thai Me Up. Had an Excellent Red Curry, which was pretty hot.
The sun shone today, but there were showers as well. While Yura and I were eating in the Indian restaurant Zest, the heavens opened and there was torrential rain. Luckily (no one had jackets because it was a nice warm evening), by the time we had finished the weather was nice again.
Managed to move into the Apex City on Grass market. A far better location than where the Thistle resides.
Today started as a lovely clear sunny morning. Weather forecast though predicts the same heavy showers as Wednesday.
Worked fairly late tonight making some modifications to the code for installation after the product goes live. Met up with Yura for a meal at the Mussel Inn. Good old-fashioned thunderstorm just as we were going out at 20.00. Borrowed an umbrella from the hotel lost property. At the Mussel inn (very crowded, had to wait for a table), I had grilled herring fillets with crumbled feta cheese as a starter, followed by grilled bream on a bed of crushed potato.
Slight drizzle as I headed to work, but cleared up during the day.
Spent the morning testing my code changes, and then out to lunch with the bank team for a pre going live celebration drink and meal.
Back to work, and then home on the 18.05 Easyjet flight. It almost left on time, we were all on the plane, and no problems with air traffic control, but we had no fuel. Eventually left 20 minutes late.
