It's been another topsy-turvy week for me with me working the weekend and my days off seem so far away now! We did manage to see some family and friends during the days off and the highlight was most definitely the Saughton Rose Garden.
I have fond memories of the Rose Garden, we used to run round around the maze like paths as kids and watch the fish in the greenhouse pond. Afterwards we would go to the big play park and play on the orange monkey swings.
As with all these things, it got shabbier and shabbier as we grew up and was eventually written off by everyone as overgrown and unloved. Last year however the decision was made to get it sorted and return it to its former glory.
With life the way it is, and Missy being a dog who loves the wild places most, we just never got round to visiting after the grand reopening. It was my friends suggested meeting spot and we found a quiet corner where we could safely chat at a distance and enjoy the escape from the city.
There is now a skate park, and the play park has had a revamp too, so the area is looking lovely.
After that the weather turned, and its been threatening lightning storms since. I won't complain, its good to have an excuse to stay in and craft.
I did manage to get my latest dungarees finished in time to enjoy the sun. Another varient on my Rosie the Riveter pattern, this purple linen outfit was meant to be another disney bound (Gadget, from Rescue Rangers), but I have held off the goggle/mouse ear combo that's to go with it until we know for sure when we are next at Disney.
My adventures restart on Tuesday, so that's all for now!
