The Scottish Parliament. by happypat

The Scottish Parliament.

Harry & I paid a visit to this magnificent Parliament building in Edinburgh while visiting that city.
We were amazed at the architecture & the detail of every inch. I can quite see why there was controversy about the cost of it, forgotten now I dare say & it’s certainly a building to be proud of.
Slightly over the top in every embellished detail in my opinion but there is money wasted on worse things!

Three good things:
1. I have written every Christmas card except two which needs words written in them.
2. This morning I used the small hand held hoover to give the sofa a good clean.
3. Excitement about the Mars landing happening tonight....fingers crossed it lands OK.
OOH great space!
You are good with the card writing, how many do you send?
OOh Mars... how about a Mars bar landing...hahaha

@huvesaker I send around 70 cards Boo, too many I know but I can’t seem to cut down. Quite a few to different countries too so it gets expensive! I do love getting cards though so I persevere.

@happypat hahah you sound like me, Last year I sent 85...a few people are no longer around or they have moved and I have no adress so this year will be a more sensible 55

@huvesaker Well we are blessed we have so many people to remember, that’s the way I look at it!

@happypat very very true

Thanks for sharing this as we nearly went there once on a visit to Clare! I have to wonder what you put in the already-written cards?!

Great POV

@quietpurplehaze Ha ha Hazel I phrased that badly, I meant I had to write newsy info about family & what sort of year we’ve had!

I"ll have to check about this Mars landing thought I do like Boo's comment @huvesaker. Amazing building - must have the best light in it though!

@happypat

I know, just me being silly, take no notice!! I used to like Mars bars but they don’t fit with a no sugar diet....

p.s. I cherish your lovely comment on my ‘where I like to be’ post, thanks.

A very impressive building Pat , love it so spacious and light with all the desks - somehow reminds me of an uni examination hall !! Great that you have completed your Xmas Card writing - I panicked last night and started on mine my numbers have dwindle over the years and am down to 50 odd - expensive to post but I o love to give and receive Christmas cars !

It is an impressive building isn’t it. I was there a few years ago. I do think the Scottish Parliament Building in Edinburgh should be impressive.
November 26th, 2018  
Ohhhh this looks so modern and I’m sure it’s full of technological marvels.
November 26th, 2018  
A nice bright space!
November 26th, 2018  
it is a stunning venue though Pat, such a lovely photo
November 26th, 2018  
Wonderful
November 26th, 2018  
Wonderful composition and gold

Lovely building. It looks quite calm when its empty doesn't it. When we went to our State Parliament a few weeks ago and sat in on question time it was like a giant kindergarten.
November 27th, 2018  
@quietpurplehaze oh I like yours & everyone’s comments Hazel, to me that is far more important than the photo bit. I have discovered that the photo is a means to an end & the contact with people more important in my life so every little newsy bit & info about places & people is a massive bonus.

Great shot - and well done for writing your cards so soon, may follow your example!
November 27th, 2018  
How nice to see inside. We only saw the outside when we were there, so this is very interesting.
November 27th, 2018  
Fab capture. Do you know, I've never been inside. Must do that someday. Re Christmas cards - I too do about 70-80, mostly for friends abroad, and what's worse, I haven't started yet! This weekend? Perhaps!
November 27th, 2018  
What a gray place to visit. Sometimes the cost seems excessive.
November 27th, 2018  
It's a fabulous building and glad you were able to visit inside. Like @jamibann I have never been inside either and as for Christmas Cards.....well done to you!!! I suppose I better get a move on!!!!😂😂😂
