The summer is just a fading memory

It’s the end of September, the nights are drawing in. I know this as I’m just back from walking the dog and it was getting dark at 7.15pm, so summer is well and truly gone, past, finito, but in an attempt to catch up on summer, it included:


Music-wise – the Download festival, AC-DC at Hampden, followed by the Boss, then U2, all at the same venue.


Days away to North Berwick, Edinburgh, Portobello, and beaches in between; and a climb up the volcanic lump that is North Berwick Law to see the whale bones that weren’t.


A long weekend in London which included catching the latest Harry Potter at the I-MAX on the South Bank, and the London Eye which was minutes away from where we were staying, and long, long walks down famous streets, and eating out, and pub lunches, and shopping.


A brilliant week away at St. Monans to catch the Pittenweem Arts Festival, with various friends dropping in during the week.


And at the end of August trips through to the Edinburgh Book Festival to catch the likes of Carol Ann Duffy, Neil Gaiman and China Mieville.
