Thanks to Poppy at one end and Chopin at the other, Leftwing Idiot and I have made it safely to Edinburgh. Leaving a scorching London this morning we were very soon reminded that it’s much colder up north.
We’ve settled into the flat, our home for the next week or so, and we’ve been taking the opportunity to have a look around. We’re renting from someone while they’re away so of course we’ve been trying to work out something about them from the clues around us.
Chopin was in the kitchen just now and I heard her gasp with surprise, and then laugh. The reason? This little porker.
Anyone who’s been reading my blog for a long time will remember my mysterious Piggy collection. The Pig Fairy would reward me with a new pig for every full day I had without a ‘ticcing fit’. That all stopped last year when my fits became less frequent, but as soon as Chopin showed me our unexpected flatmate I started squealing with surprise.
We’re in Edinburgh for a short run of Backstage in Biscuit Land as part of the Fringe Festival, with the first show on Monday, so if you’re around please do come and see us – the details are here. And if you can’t wait that long I’ll be doing my first ever stand-up (from the comfort of my wheelchair) tomorrow night, with some other Abnormally Funny People.
