Well another year, another international assignment. This time weíve ended up in Edinburgh, Scotland for 1 year.
We found a small rental house, on a quiet street of post-war homes in a village in the south-west outskirts of Edinburgh. The house and yard was completely gutted and renovated before we moved
in. Well, mostly renovated but thatís a much longer story.
Letís just say that 6 months later we still have to run an extension cord from the kitchen to the garage to dry our clothes....[Update: we no longer need the extension cord, but the back roof is caving in...]
Hereís a picture of the back yard.
Thereís an incredible amount of flower beds and weíve had a gardening company come in twice so far and give it a complete clean-out. We were desperately trying to find a house with as little lawn and garden maintenance as possible, but the relocation agent showed us the only 3 houses in the greater Edinburgh area that would work for us and we choose the lesser of the evils.
