Happy 100th, Bloomiehall Park

Christmas Day went well, loads of food left but that's better than not enough. Gradually working our way through the left overs. Hearts game was off on Boxing Day so spent the afternoon ironing instead !

Accepted a very kind invitation to join numerous "Juniper Greeners" on a community ramble around the area and along the Water of Leith Walkway. We met at Bloomiehall Park which will celebrate its 100th birthday as a community asset in 2011. Plently of ideas were bandied about on how to mark such an auspicious anniversary, I suspect something memorable will happen, in the summer perhaps. It was an enjoyable stroll in spite of the cold and damp and still a lot of ice and snow on the ground, particularly along the river walkway. Plenty of evidence too of damage caused by fallen trees brought down by the weight of snow. The walk concluded at Al Borgo in JG for an excellent lunch, washed down by a glass of cheeky red, amongst good company. All in all an excellent community event and many thanks to Cliff and Liz Beevers for making all the necessary arrangements and to Sylvia and her staff for a lovely meal.
