Edinburgh, Scotland (23 Great King Street)
Can’t believe how much I slept last night. So quiet that my sleep was not disturbed and was able to sleep in until late morning. By the time I left the flat it was after 1:00 p.m.
My first destination was Bannatyne Health Club to renew my membership. Was easy to renew and one of the counter people remembered me from last year. I also got a few days in December for free. I’ll start working out this coming Monday.
My plan for later today is to make a Cottage Pie. I stopped by a nearby M&S store hoping to get most everything I need there. Was surprised they didn’t have any bay leaves or beef stock. One of the M&S staff recommended that I stop by the nearby Sainsbury store, which I did. One the way back to the flat I visited the Tesco store to pick up the heavier items so I wouldn’t have to carry them as far.
I had three days of travel blog updates to write and to start making the Cottage Pie. I had forgotten how much peeling and cutting prep work was involved. I ended up having dinner at 10:00 p.m. Boy was I hungry by then!
I watched a few more episodes of Salvation before going to bed. No plans for tomorrow, but have a few odds and ends to do that I’ll do from home.
Note: I’m not planning to post every day over the next six weeks. Time to rest from my travels. I’m planning to start using Instagram for my pictures. I work on the Instagram effort tomorrow. I’ll add a new link below when ready.
