After three weeks of dull grey and almost constant rain this week I am hoping for some sunshine, for a wee bit of summer to return to Edinburgh this weekend. I'm feeling a wee bit 'cooped up' and all I want to do is get out in the open, fill my lungs with fresh air, sit on the grass picking daisies and maybe shade under some trees in the dappled sunlight.

I do not want to be rummaging through cupboards fishing out the winter woollies. I do not want the house to be filled with that 'wet dog' smell yet again. I do not want to be lighting every lovely scented candle I have just to get rid of said doggy smell. I do not want to be putting the lights on in the middle of the day because it is just so dark!

Surely this is not too much to ask, especially in July!?

I am planning a long walk along the river to see Antony Gormely's new '6 times' installation. I am hoping the sun will shine or at the very least that the rain will not rain!

I do hope you all have some lovely sunshiny (or not!) plans lined up for your weekends too?
Emma, x

It is going to be a beautiful weekend and a walk along the Water of Leith to see those amazing statues will not disappoint. Oh, I am so happy to see the sun.
