We are really looking forward to the upcoming visit of Pink-Winged and her family in just over a week's time and have plans made to do a "jumpy-oot" Ghost Tour with the kids and a girlie visit to Ikea ;)

I think Pink also plans to visit Edinburgh Castle and the (by now) traditional open topped bus tour of the city.

Anyone else from MSE visiting Edinburgh in the next wee while that would like to say hello on this thread?

    Much as I would love to be visiting Edinburgh again I am afraid that we have other plans. Hope you have a great time with Pink and family.

    I would love to visit Edinburgh again, it's warm and sunny and no rain.

    (Ok it was still summer when I was there!)

    I will definitely visit again at the first chance I have though as I think it's a great place.

    scottishf,

    We have got two rooms at a travelodge. They are doing £10 rooms at the moment, so maybe worth a look. Travelodge are basic but clean...which is all we need as we hope to be out all day and only plan to sleep and shower there.

    Gosh it's only nine days away! :eek: I'm getting excited now! :j


    I fell in love with Edinburgh the first time I saw it. It's a fabulous city with so much to offer all ages. This will be my third visit this year. Mr Pink has never been,.....I'm hoping he likes it as much as I do, so we can go back again and again. Ohhhhh I can't wait!!!

    Fran, the sunshine did help didn't it. :D I was there in January and it was still as much fun then, if a little colder!

    aliasojo..........I'm so disappointed that you can't be there, but hopefully there will be other times. :)

    I would gladly smuggle you in my suitcase Queenie.........Do think about coming to the next Edinburgh meet if you can. The last one was such fun. A ghost walk, a bus tour, a tapas bar, some shopping, lots of shortbread, mega breakfasts at half price (thanks to toozie), chips at midnight (supplied by Ivan), Ivan in a nappy, and lots and lots of giggles.
