The adventures of Fe & Chris

Curiosities at home

There are some curious goings on afoot in our home town of South Queensferry: would you believe it seems to be going a little up market? Don’t misunderstand me, it has always been a pretty little middle class town (with its mandatory collection of neds as being part of small-town Scotland dictates), but after one of the old pubs was made into a perfectly acceptable contemporary styled bar a while back, another wine bar of similar ilk has sprung up (free olives with your pint: that’s not very small-town Scotland).

Now that we are leaving, more changes are looming. The same establishment that runs the new wine bar will open what looks like high class delicatessen on the high street the day after we leave. In a week’s time the Ferry Fringe arts festival will commence. At the Fringe, art, poetry, comedy, food and even a beer festival are promised. It all sounds rather exciting. We’ll be sorry to miss it.

Can any of the more local readership investigate both the deli and the festival and keep us informed?

This sounds like the babbling of a slightly apprehensive man. We will keep you informed of developments (well, we will need breaks while re-decorating your house).

Chris, get a job; Fiona, will you use ‘Dr.’ to open doors?- Bon Voyage!

you see, this is where we need to know when you were flying today? Can I ask what the point of the calender is other than being pretty? Also why no pics of yourselves

Other than that, very pretty and it is nice to see what a life of leisure allows folk to do. Don’t travel too hard and don’t forget that postcards are appreciated as well as web updates! K

Keir,

> Can I ask what the point of the calender is other than being pretty?

Certainly. It allows you (the reader) too search for posts in a temporal dimension; the dates turn a pleasing shade of green when we have posted something on that date. Clever, don´t you think?

Michael (Dr),

Your house looks lovely. We´ll have to look at a map and see if we can find our way to you! We´ve a short appointment with an Orang Outan in Sabah in February. Perhaps we can drop in after that?
