Edinburgh, Scotland (15 York Place)
No construction noise this morning. But I woke up early anyway, if 8:00 is considered early. Earlier, I was up again at 3:00 and ate a bowl of oatmeal and drank some tea, then went back to bed.
Just before I was leaving for the gym, received a text from my friend Mary. She and her daughters are visiting Edinburgh on Friday and asked if we could meet up. Will be good to see her again. That made my day! We have fun together and make each other laugh. Nice to have friends like that.
Stopped by the store to buy some bread and a few other things. Was getting low on bread and didn’t want to run out. When you’re a breadoholic, you crave it more when it isn’t available. Perhaps there is a 12-step program for people like me. Good news is that I’m eating fewer slices and the bread is now multi-grain with nuts, which is better for you than plain white bread.
Had the remainder of the pasta salad for dinner. Also picked up a shepherd’s pie from M&S because I didn’t want to make a big dinner then clean it up before leaving tomorrow. It wasn’t as good as mine, but it tasted good nonetheless.
Went to bed early. Big moving day tomorrow and will have a long visit with Mary too. Wonder what the new place will be like? I see that the host is offering a 30% discount for a month’s stay. Something to consider for next year.
