Just a quick update, as time is at a premium at the moment.
The weekend was great fun but extremely tiring, and an excess of gorgeous food yesterday resulted in me getting very sleepy and over-emotional, as it often will. George’s Dad was lovely enough to drive us home from Hampshire with the quite gorgeous executive chair I received as a birthday present (along with Time Bandits and Neon Genesis Evangelion (1+2) on DVD, and a fabulously incomprehensible T-shirt from Toby, George’s brother).
I’m now packed for Edinburgh, and will be leaving the house in an hour. I’ve got a screening tonight (The Aristocrats), then I’m meeting George after work for an hour- and then, I’m on my way whether I like it or not. I’m currently reeling from the fact that I’m pretty sure I’ve got everything, and I’ve managed a fairly compact rucksack and a bit of hand luggage. Scotland is not the ends of the Earth, and I am only going for two weeks, but it was still a bit of a surprise.
I don’t really have enough time to think at the moment, which is probably best. I’ve got two confirmed comissions for Edinburgh, but I’ve got a couple of days before I have to hurl myself into things completely. I keep telling myself- this is reconnaisance. This is the test. This is the “prototype” version, so I can get all the really dumb mistakes out of the way now.
Anyhow, I will try and update as much as possible, but apologies if tremendous gaps appear for a while, as I will have to assess the terrain before I know what’s what.
In any case, it’s going to be interesting seeing what the next two weeks have in store for me.
Tick…. tick….. tick….
