WORK IS EXHAUSTING… Ben on his second Friday! I was not working, but got up with Ben and cycled with him for a coffee date at MILK, a simple little cafe near his office.
Ben headed to the office and I headed to the swimming pool.
WHERE ARE THE PICTURES… Ben enjoying a rare moment of solitude. Since we are without the internet, we are forced to talk and read. Ben is tackling a John Irving book. We are going to a talk the Irv on May 30. I am reading a book on Wallis Simpson, so far, rather interesting.
The internet is supposed to arrive today, so better blog posts coming later in the week. I should not do too much from work.
MOVIN’… Ben moved two van loads of our possessions yesterday to our new place.
We had to make a quick dash to collect a few more essentials after work and used this zippy Fiat 500- not a lot of trunk space.
We slept there last night, it was warm and comfortable. The dishwasher is even starting to be filled. La luxe!
We will be without internet and phone for a week or so- you can always call our mobiles.
CANAL RUNNING… We went for an 8.5 mile run yesterday in the Sunday sunshine. Ben begins a new volunteer project tomorrow at an arts organization in a community called Wester Hailes. I wanted to see where he will be working outside the home three days a week, so out to WHALE (Wester Hailes Arts Leisure and Education) on the heel-toe express. This is a picture of the Union Canal, which runs to Glasgow.
