After last weekend and the dismal performance against Wales in the Six Nations, I wasn't holding out much hope for the second game against France at Murrayfield. I was so confident after years of trying, we could eventually win in Cardiff - alas these hopes were dashed within 5 minutes.
I was meeting friends in The Stockbridge Tap before going for something to eat in Hector's and watch the game. The Water of Leith Walkway is one of my favourite walks in Edinburgh so I decided to leave a bit early and walk to Stockbridge. It was a wee bit damp and muddy along parts of it and it was incredibly busy with others having the same idea as me for a nice Sunday morning walk.
After a couple of drinks in The Stockbridge Tap we crossed the pavement to our table in Hector's.
It was a great match and Scotland looked incredibly good - pity they hadn't performed like that the week before. Still...
