All week I’ve been trying to get a post up about our trip to Scotland, but the evenings keep filling up and before I know it, I’m in bed after a looooong day.
Like today–whew. We went to Ikea in Cardiff to get a few things (including a high chair for Charlie–just a couple weeks until he’ll be using it). We also joined Costco (yes, they have Costco here!), taking full advantage of great prices on giant bags of almonds, shrimp, frozen berries, plus a huge value pack of contact solution (which for some reason seems to be really expensive in the UK). We will probably go just once a month to do a little stocking up on staples, but it’s so worth it.
Driving home was a bit hairy, as coming back from Cardiff typically seems to be: taking the wrong exit on a roundabout which then shot us back where we came from, with ten minutes before we could turn around, which then coincided with school letting out, crazy traffic, and rain. Driving is definitely the biggest stress and most difficult cultural adjustment we’ve had to make, but that deserves its own post.
The evening itself was pretty laid back, though, and I did my strength training circuit from 42 Days to Fit. I’m
looking forward to seeing a difference soon, as well as just to getting more energy in general.
All this to say, really, that a Scotland post is coming soon, just you wait! In the meantime, here’s a photo of The Cutest.
