Well, we made it here in one piece and in good time. It took us ten hours to drive here (just outside Glasgow) from London. Mapquest says you can do it in seven without stopping. We got to my Mum’s last night just after 8:30 p.m.
The boys did great on the plane, in fact — they were near perfect. Cameron got a little cranky near the end of the last flight, but other than that they were quiet and well-behaved. You would have hardly known they were on the flight except for the myriad of questions Ian was firing at Bryan all the time. And, they managed to sleep a lot which did they great. Their ears didn’t bother them either, I was pleasantly surprised. We were a little jet-lagged this morning, but are doing great.
True to form, Scotland is wet and very windy. Just like it was when I left. Bryan almost expected a hurricane the wind was blowing so hard. The (mile wide) river even had white peaks everywhere.
As a closing thought, I’d just like to say, if you ever have the opportunity to travel to Scotland and you can save $1200 flying to Heathrow instead of Glasgow–just spend the money, it’s well worth it.
