With my boiler working again I started to unpack with my Mum and tried and get my flat looking straight again for the new term. Finding proper homes for all my most important things took a little re-organising but it is looking loads better this evening.
I always knew where I wanted to film today’s verse, right opposite the RCS is the National Piping Centre for Scotland and I thought that it would be just perfect.
We walked over to the centre just after lunch as there was a break in the weather and as we walked down the steps opposite the centre I could see that the centre was closed 🙁
We tried several times during the afternoon but there was no sign of the centre opening at all. I talked it through with my Dad and we decided to go back after dark and film outside on the steps.
As we walked back towards the centre it was still bathed in darkness but literally as we arrived on the steps outside all the lights went on inside and someone opened the doors 🙂
We went inside to try and persuade them to let us film inside but there was a wedding on and the bride and guests were due any minute but if we were quick we could film on the steps, All the staff on duty wanted to get involved and I asked them to get together for a picture 🙂
We went outside and filmed today’s verse and finished by taking some pictures of the centre.
So here it is “Eleven Pipers Piping”
