Torres and Cycling

It’s festival month in Edinburgh, so the city has been busy and life has flown by. I’ve been focused on earning money in advance of some paternity leave in November.

I managed almost no running, and only one big cycle ride. I went out and tried some new paths over the Pentlands.

We went to Glasgow to see Torres at Mono Bar. It was a fun gig - if you’ve not heard her album “Thirstier” then check it out.

That’s all for this month - September is more work, the return of EdinburghJS, and a weekend away cycling. 👋
