The Festival Madness Has Begun!

The annual Edinburgh Festival officially starts today, which means the population of Edinburgh doubles (or triples, not sure) and the streets are taken over by the most varied performers and an army of flyerers. It’s the biggest arts festival in the world with over 50 000 shows!! Just thinking about flicking through the programme makes me stressed so I’m just going to go with recommendations…

Last year I didn’t get to experience the festival at all as I was in Finland for most of August plus Lana was only 6 months old, but this year I want to make sure to see at least a few performances. We’ve booked two for tomorrow; baby disco for Lana and a Lana-free comedy show in the evening. We’ve also booked a table at a little Sushi place, so it’ll be a date night for us – canny wait! And for the first time we won’t have a curfew as Matthew’s parents will be taking Lana overnight. If everything goes to plan…

Lana tends to call everyone and everything “mamma”, so I had to laugh out loud when yesterday at the museum’s gift shop she pointed to this fella and said “pappa” for the first time! She’s so clever 🙂
