So we are back from Edinburgh – the final stop on the whirlwind world tour that we’ve been making before the big move. It was an easy, sweet and comfortable week, which we spent surrounded by many of the people who know us best. It was an oddly calm and unemotional reunion with the city I once loved so much I dedicated to an entire A-Z to it on this blog.
DorkyDad stayed in the centre of town, and spent most of the week focused on his festival shenanigans. I did steal him away for dinner at our favourite fish restaurant in Leith one evening – the first Dorky date night in a year – and I also made it along to watch the final of the BBC Poetry Slam that he was hosting.
That night was a lovely opportunity to see friends both old and new. I’ve known @housetoastonish and @betaraycarrie for almost ten years – there is not a better-suited or more adorable couple in Scotland, and we will long treasure the copy of Dr Seuss’s Oh The Places You’ll Go that they gave us to say goodbye. I heart them hard.
