Since I’ve been super remiss about posting here on the blog about our adventures in England, I thought I’d do a bit o’ recap of the highlights from the last couple of weeks….
Arrived, fussed over the little boy, dealt with the whole shot thing by ending up going to Manchester by train to meet with Dr. Yin and get the first shot (Karen and I then made our way from the clinic by taxi back to the train station in Stockport and then by train from Stockport to Manchester where we did some shopping and finally from Manchester back to Lancaster), many trips walking into town for shopping, have had an occasional pasty, a nice visit with Ashley who came in on the train from Edinburgh, more playing with and fussing over the boy, a drive to the Trafford Center mall near Manchester for more Christmas shopping, more walks into town (we do it at least once daily), more fussing over the boy, wrapped purchased Christmas presents, petting Wicket and Ziggy, and still more fussing over the boy. He’s the cutest every, I’m just saying…
That’s pretty much been it. I’ve taken some photos, though not tons. Mostly of the boy. We are gearing up for a lot of picture taking on Christmas eve and Christmas day. Watch for those.
We’ve been here two weeks tomorrow. The time has flown by really. There’s tons of darkness here. It doesn’t get really light out, like fully light, until about 10:00 in the morning and conversely it starts getting dark about 3:30 or even a tad sooner. The sunrises and sunsets seem to take a long long time. I think we only get about 6 hours of good daylight every day. Strange. At least we’ve had a lot of blue sky so far when it is light. We like that. We were expecting way more gray skies and rain. Lucky.
