So July has been a hugely busy month – I am taking 10 minutes to type it out as otherwise I might not believe everything we’ve been up to thus far!
How sad is it that I even need to confer with my diary, just to ensure it’s all happened in July? So here we go..
Taste Festival – Edinburgh @ The Meadows – Saturday 2nd July – Super Boozey and a million crowns left over. Kudos to No12 for the VIP tent.
Duck Race Day – Ballie Bar Stockbridge – Sunday 3rd July – Fabulous year raised over £3.8k for Lifecare & St Columba’s Hospice. Not to smished this year – that’s a first, but it was gloriously hot and I stayed off the Rioja Blanco.
Tenerife Mini-Break – Tuesday 5th to Sunday 10th July – Just me & Mr JoJo. Boozey sun down time.. Whales, Monkies and Giant Tortoises.
The Flea Market @ Drill Hall Arts Cafe, Out of the Blue – Saturday 16th July – Sold off all our unwanted Boutique Furniture & Nic-Naks. Amazing Sandwiches & Super comfy chair.
Those Were the Days Official Opening Night – St Stephen Street, Stockbridge – Thursday 21st July – WOWIE! That was an Alcoholic one! Plenty of lovely people turned up (and some mad cow) Total Shopping Extravaganza as Lilies & Dreams co-hosted. Thanks Claire
Bark in the Park - Inverlieth Park, Edinburgh – Sunday 24th July – Tio-Pepe, under the supervision of Mr JoJo & I, completed the sponsored walk to raise money for St Columba’s Hospice. Go Tio! Still not too late to reward him for his hard work:
Rewind Scotland – 80′s Festival @ Scone Palace, Perthshire – Friday 29th July to Monday 1st August – Squrt (www.cloud-houses.co.uk). Kaz & Dave. Party Box (Pink Pino-Griglio). Wander & Fairground Rides. Gin Breakfast + Bacon Rolls. More Wander. Bands. Afternoon Disco Nap. Go West. Bananarama. More Bands & Artists. Tony Hadley / Rick Astley. Passout. No Booze Breakfast. Party Box #2. Champagne Tent. More Wander. Healthy Food = Rubbish, so Pizza. Fishy Pedicure. More Booze. Kim Wilde. Toyah. karaoke Tent = Madonna Material Girl. Cringe. More Dancing Around. More Bands & Booze. Passout. Wake Up dying with bruises everywhere, lost half our memory (and still my voice which we lost on Saturday). Brilliant!
Phew! Add into that the 2 businesses to run, keeping house, MrJoJo & RatDog inline. 3 Nail Appointments (RBFY) 1x facial (ESPA @ Harvey Nichols) 5 trips to Doggie Daycare. 1 Trip to Grooming Marvelous (RatDog) and all the other catching with friends etc, I’d say no wonder I’m shattered going into August. And lets face it, with the Fringe Festival, several Trade SHows and a buying trip ahead, July is looking Tame by comparison!
