16.36 - Optimum time for napping at work
Most people won't accept pets (even two beautiful pedigree cats who poop in their tray and don't scratch the furniture), and if they do, they need a minimum six month let. I'm prepared to go out of Edinburgh if necessary, and I'm not at all fussy about the accommodation. You'd think I'd get SOMEWHERE wouldn't you? Well unfortunately, the one of the biggest arts festivals in the world is gearing up to take place right on my doorstep, and the canny Edinburgh residents realise that if they're prepared to vacate their homes for a month, they can make a FORTUNE. This is lovely for them (and I may well consider doing it myself if I'm ever short of cash), but by god it's making my life difficult. One girl I spoke to last night wanted £250 PER WEEK, for her one bedroom flat in Polwarth.
I love the Festival, I really do, but WHY OH WHY does it have to be on in August?
