We cycled round and round the Leith roundabout, two of us sharing the bike. We discussed the dilemmas of parenthood for the single woman. For example, it is better to foster then adopt? Or should one return the fostered children to social services in the hope of finding a man to marry and then have children of one’s own? I favoured the former strategy because it gives the children a loving home. I also thought it deceitful to marry a man solely on the basis that he could provide you with a family.
We suspected that our roundabout circling would attract the attention of Forth FM DJs whose offices looked out onto the street. It did not.
After our deliberations we came off the roundabout and set off to hunt for Christopher Biggins, who worked in a nearby office. All we found, however, was a gathering of Edinburgh’s top techies, including (of course) JM.
