Things I’d like to do

August is almost upon us and as usual, i begin to get the emails through about the festivals in Edinburgh.  i get the emails because i am a bit pathetic and live vicariously through the information and updates sent to me.

when i received the signup from Scotsman.com this morning to get their daily festival guide,  i was reminded afresh of how i would love to be in Edinburgh some August.  any time i have been there, it’s been in the spring or late August/early September, which is very beautiful but i’d love to experience the festival season.

i have always fancied going to the Edinburgh Book Festival …. i get overwhelmed with emotion just thinking about being there with all those authors and books.  It takes place “every August in a leafy Georgian garden in Scotland’s beautiful capital city” and features hundreds of authors.

i also peeked on the Tattoo site this morning and saw the note that half-price tickets are available for August 5th … i almost wept with regret that i am not on the ground there.  for those of you that are, the link is http://www.edintattoo.co.uk/.
