FOUR SEASONS IN A DAY
Right now we only have complete darkness for a couple of hours during the night. It is very surreal to wake up in the middle of the night and see light outside. The sun has been shining more these days with clouds coming and going as they please and yesterday was a particularly lovely one (. . . or so it seemed). When Jason got home from school we slowly but surely got ready for an evening walk we had planned. We went down Sauchehall street to walk through the shopping streets and have a look. There are some really fun, trendy and cheap stores that we appreciate (you would love Primark). We managed to arrive just as the shops were closing (they stay open "late" on Thursdays--8 pm) so, we just walked around a bit and then did some small grocery shopping.
As we headed for home we felt a bit of rain (which is completely normal for Scotland) but then it got harder and harder and we eventually got soaked! Luckily Soren's stroller is a secret space mobile for the rain. Everyone has them--the complete plastic rain cover for buggies. Before moving here from sunny California I thought the sun umbrella on most strollers was for the rain! Such a California girl thought.
The above photos are the evidence. I need windshield wipers for my glasses! Oh, and check out the cute mini behind Soren and Jason--Soren loves them and always points them out while we are on walks.
