You can't beat Edinburgh for a bit of pre-Christmas build up. Despite the thoroughly miserable weather this week, there's no avoiding the excitement generated by those annual signals that announce festivities are on their way...Chrsitmas songs are playing in the shops! The ferris wheel at the Walter Scott Monument has been built! Princes Street Gardens has some weird and wonderful flat-scaffolding-type-
construction that can only be the start of the ice rink!
Of course we're fully into the sun-less days, which is a bit of a pain for me as there are street signs to be found and photographed. That'll need to be a weekend job then. Thankfully at my day job I have a window seat so I do actually get some Vitamin D, unlike less fortunate friends forever subjected to arriving and leaving their offices in darkness. OK, perhaps not forever...but for the winter months at least.
The lack of sun is perhaps a good thing though - great time of year for night-time collages...where to start...any ideas? If so, leave a comment! (below)
Hope you're enjoying the site so far and thank you to all those who've left or sent me such lovely messages - they've all put a smile on my face :)
The leaves haven't entirely fallen just yet...no harm in being prepared though it would seem!

I was hoping for a rainy Sunday.
That way I could hide myself away, finally get this website live and I could post a 'haven't-I-worked-hard-all-weekend' style blog post! But no, it's been a day of blue skies, crisp air and inviting scenery...
Don't get me wrong, I have put the time in today to add those final touches to the site, ready to welcome the first visitors (that would be you!), but I couldn't resist heading out to take photos for a new collage, as well as a street name or two. A trip out to South Queensferry to admire the Forth Rail and Road bridges means I should be busy for a good wee while creating a new collage. Watch this space!
In the meantime, welcome to my new website! It's been a few months in the making - all those evenings and weekends have been worth it as I have to say I'm chuffed with the result. That said, I'd love some feedback, so please do get in touch and let me know what you think - all constructive criticism will be welcomed...maybe.
The Forth Rail Bridge (Road Bridge in the distance) - not bad weather for a Scottish November Sunday!
