It was great to be back in Glasgow.
When I got off the bus around 9:25, I was pleasantly surprised and met with sunshine. Hannah’s house is a bit under two miles from the coach station, and I decided to have a little walk.
I made a coffee stop and enjoyed the stroll. It was warm and fun to look into the windows of the countless shops and restaurants along the way.
Hannah and Edith were waiting in the alley by their house. Edith is almost 20 months old and likes sitting on her scooter cart while her mother drags it with a jump rope. The three of us immediately left for a trip to the grocery.
Life with a toddler revolves around her naps. Hannah, her mother, and I were able to escape during one of Edith’s and visited some of the neighborhood stores. Their local Oxfam was particularly good.
In the evening, a babysitter arrived to watch Edith and her older brother Magnus. It was Hannah’s mother’s birthday, and the four of us went out for a rather fancy supper.
I loved being back in Glasgow, but last time I came with Vinnie. I wish some of the kids could have come this time too. It feels strange not have any of my own children around when I’m with friends’ children.
Hopefully the whole family can come next time I’m in Glasgow.
