Monkey in charge

Edinburgh

Across the road from my work there was this yesterday:


I actually walked past this about 4-ish, when one of the officers was happily chatting to a teenage protestor who was stroking his horses nose.

In fact the police have generally been very friendly, chatting away to people as they tell them they can't cycle into the pedestrianised areas, directing us towards toilets, and frequently wearing Drop The Debt badges themselves.

In fact, the whole event yesterday went off extremely well, apart from a couple of isolated incidents.  I hope the rest of the week goes as smoothly.

I spent today helping the newly-returned Ed put together his new wardrobe, then got beaten at Settlers of Catan by chuma.  I walk back with him afterwards through Holyrood Park, which turned out to be a mistake, as my allergies kicked in (last year was the first time I'd had hayfever) and I had tears streaming down my face by the end.

Having arrived home and taken Clarityn, I'm now off to watch a movie of some kind - I have far too many I haven't seen, so me and Ed are making a concerted effort to see some of them.
