Day spent humping furniture, books and paintings up and down stairs in advance of P&T’s interior renovations, in between which I run a few errands in Morningside with Catherine. The street is a curious mixture of upmarket supermarkets & coffee shops, austerity-Britain charity shops, and churches – lots of churches. On one particular crossroads there are four on each corner, each a different denomination (and in one of them is the Eric Liddell Centre – the ‘Chariots of Fire runner’ who began & ended his days in China but lived in this neighbourhood as a young man - see this post). I’d forgotten how god-fearing Scotland is. Morningside is/was also the home of several writers: Alexander McCall Smith, Ian Rankin and, until recently, J K Rowling. Illustrious company for my good brother...
