A very wet day in the capital, perfect weather for a new umbrella

ScottMonument BrollyThe rain hasn’t stopped pouring down today in Edinburgh, and thoughts go to a Scottish must have: The brolly.

Together with wallpaper and lampshades I have always thought my black line art work would look great on an umbrella, especially with the artwork showing through to the inside, and what better a shape to fit on each panel but the Scott Monument on Princes Street.

What do you think, should I go into production?

A rainy Royal Mile

I was in town yesterday with my brother, his wife and their child, Raymond, seen here in the pram. The rain was relentless but it didn’t stop us having a great day looking around the Old Town.

We were watching a young busker here entertaining the crowd with a guitar, after which we headed down the Mile to the Museum of Childhood. It’s a great place for reminiscing and even better it’s free and dry! 🙂
