I am just back from a day in the National Museum in Edinburgh. Its a fabulous place.
 

I took a few recent finds along with the James VI coin to give to TT.
Natasha recorded them all and I have got everything back.
I am really delighted to have the coin back.


On the downside, I had lunch in the museum restaurant, it was very nice, but if the English had charged like that at Bannock-burn they would have won.
