Can’t believe I’ve been on holiday for 6 weeks already - gone by so fast. I’ve just had a brilliant week in Edinburgh exploring the Fringe festival with some uni friends. I saw 18 shows in just over 5 days - quite impressive methinks, and all of them were enjoyable. I mostly saw comedy productions, although watched the odd theatre production (notably “Sheakspeare for Breakfast” …”QUESTION??!!” and Guilds devised and peformed by the Edinburgh University Savoy Opera Group). What I was most impressed by this year were the number and quality of female comedians. My favourite two female comedians were Josie Long, whose ‘Trying is Good’ show left me wanting to make the world a better place and thinking how much I’d like to be friends with her, and Joanna Neary’s ‘Little Moments’, who’s one hour sketch show was delightful.

However, after a wonderful week, I have returned to England with a horrible cold which is making me slightly grumpy and leaving me no choice but to slob when I really should be doing some dissertation work.

My good friend Ellie is getting married this weekend though so that is something to look forward to and then I have a whole week to spend with the lovely Chris in Wiltshire.
