Santa's work is never done...

Sunday morning, up bright and breezy and made plans to meet roger in town for drink before he left, then go meet my brother and give him his pressie.

First stop St James' centre to pick up couple pressies, then onto Mulltrees walk, now here's a place i rarely frequent, full of designer shops and Harvey Nicks. Got Stephen 2 things in Gstar shop, a scarf (£25!) and a top £40, which isn't too bad for long sleeved top. That's me done now, no more, most stuff has been wrapped and under tree for weeks now but that was last couple things i wanted.

Next stop the Guildford, champagne was needed. I love the Guildford, its very old and very ornate pub, which endears itself to me greatly by being one of cheapest places in Edinburgh to buy champagne, be it by the bottle of by the glass.

refuelled i waved Roger off and Head up to Tollcross to meet big bro. He was watching Celtic game, in a Celtic pub, which i didn't fancy squeezing into so i timed in nicely to miss the game, wasn't so busy when i got there. Stephen arrived to join us not long after and we settled down to watch the Chelsea v West Ham, shouting for the hammers of course , the 3 penalties were most amusing ;)

Left pub after game and headed to bus stop, got n bus just as blizzard descended. Was still very blizzardy when i got off bus and i could barely see where i was going. I was like a wee walking snowman by time i got home! lol

no running all weekend! och well, tomorrow's another day.....
