Edinburgh was a bit of a wash-out (literally) so we will need to go again to see the zoo and the observatory. I did get to climb The Scott Monument – all 287 steps.

Now we’re back that means we also got the kittens back from their mini-holiday as well, and were they pleased to see us? The kittens were, but Giz seems a little traumatised by the experience. Give her some treats and she starts purring, but is keeping to her corner for the time being.
