How's a 12 hour delay?  
*sighs*

Yeah, we were so delayed (3-3.5 hours) that I missed my connecting flight out of Heathrow @ 18.30 - seriously, we left Edinburgh Airport around that time O.o

Well, it means that I'm holed up at the Renaissance in a 209 quid/night room - not bad, but I'd really rather have been on my way home from Copenhagen Airport right now *sigh*

I'm picking up breakfast at 4.30 tomorrow morning, heading over to Terminal 5 - should be there a bit after 5 - my flight's at 6.55 - which brings me into Copenhagen roughly around 9.45 local time (I lose an hour as I set the clock forward) - that means me home somewhere around 1pm - I should've been home around midnight/1AM tonight *pouts*

Well, this is my update for tonight - I'll attempt a few hours of sleep, then I'm back up at at 'em. So, cross your fingers again (a little better this time, please?) - and I'll be heading back home - hopefully - tomorrow morning.

Last update of the hols  
Hello peeps,

This is the last morning I have here in Scotland and if all works out (cross your fingers that the flight's aren't too delayed) I should be back in my own flat sometime after midnight. of course, knowing my luck, it'll be long after midnight *sniggers* but we'll see. Tomorrow I've got a ton of stuff to catch up on before I go back to work on Wednesday :(

So, have I managed anything? Sure, I've now got 26 pages of weird mutated trekfic - that's nowhere near being finished, but at least I have a better idea of how the story goes. I hope. There are scenes and bits in there that need a hell of a lot of work and some scenes that just flowed right out of the keyboard. What's with that? Why can't the whole story just flow onto the pages - it would be less stressfull LOL

So, that's it from me at this point. I'm packing the rest of my stuff and then heading out in a few hours.

Edinburgh Botanical Garden  
Yeah, finally managed to get out of the house and take some pictures. We set out around 10ish and went down to [personal profile] catspaw's place. It was an interesting drive when we crossed the Forth - seriously, you couldn't see the bridge till you were on it, the fog was that dense!

Anywho, we arrived, were coffeefied, set up her laptop to run PS and then headed out the door to the botanical garden. And yeah, we all always come home with nearly full memorycards XD. We ate lunch first before heading in and then it was just a matter of shooting some pictures! I even managed to use the new camera quite a bit and the pictures from that one came out a lot better than I expected.

Edinburgh Botanical Garden
They're everywhere! At least there was no baby squirrel to chase us this time.

Pictures of flowers and... yeah, fog )

Morning and a happy Christmas to everyone  
Just wanted to wish everyone a happy Christmas ^_^

And a luggage update for those interested. Nicci and I want all over Dunfermline yesterday - yeah, were dying by the time we made it back to the car. Then, even though they hadn't called from the airport, we went to the park and ride and took the bus out there to check. Online tracking said it was there and being processed.

We got there, no queue, to my surprise and it's the same lady who processed my case when I got there on Thursday night - she kept telling me she had been home since then, but I'm not sure I believed her *g* - anywho, we got the luggage no problem there, and when we left, there was a queue like you wouldn't believe it! Means we sure were lucky to get there when we did. So that was us, out to the bus, back to the car and off we were.

Home, the last presents were wrapped and I think that's when we just crashed and went to bed. After setting the table. And Bex rearranging the presents on the couch - it's OCD, don't ask. Or, she just wanted to play tetris with the parcels, who knows?

Right, so this is me, signing off for now - wishing you all a very merry Christmas and I'll see you on the other side, unless we're dead from the amount of food we're going to be eating XD

IT'S WEEKEND!  
Hot damn it, peeps! About fecking time!

You know, not that I've got any bloody time to actually sit down and relax, even less spend time doing fannish stuff *pouts*

Anywho, let's get through the stuff that makes life fun *g*

HAPPY DAMNED BIRTHDAY, [profile] sunrayinn - here's to another year of fun and madness and for the coming year, we're definitely meeting up again, because I've had it up to here with implementing new IT and stress and I'm totes not doing something like that next year O.o

[personal profile] nicci_mac... ALMOST THERE! Make sure to remove ALL the snow and order good weather so I can get to Edinburgh via Heathrow, kay?

Speaking of the weather - we had sleet today - but at least it's warm enough to remove some of the compacted snow on the road - so even though it stank to bike home in the sleet, it also meant a more stable road to do so on.

Weekend update: I'm heading into the city middle tomorrow for a shopping trip with my sister, Sunday i'm dropping by [personal profile] nora_charles - keeper of my spare key - I need it for the workers coming in Monday to change some of the pipes in the kitchen and the bathroom - urgh, so no Monday Morning Littering (TM) - I'm a sloth beyond words on Monday morning - I leave shit all over the place because I'm barely concious *g*

NICCI! Not much longer and so far, I'm missing K's gift, half of Bex's and that's it - yours, N's and B's are all taken care of *g*
