I arrived in Edinburgh on Saturday, it is already a blur and it is only Tuesday! On Friday we went to Bath. We had to take a 2hr bus trip. We did the whole tourist thingy, and walked everywhere. It is a very pretty place. On the way home on the bus, a young asian woman fainted, and fell onto the bus floor. Everyone just looked at her. The bus driver pulled over, and just stood over her, and said “hello, are you alright?”, duh! She ended up waking up, he helped her to her seat, but then she came almost running out to the front door and out of the bus nearly falling. The bus driver was just letting her go, she was delirious. I suprised myself by handing Jared my purse, and walking out to help. I layed her on the ground, took off her cardigan (as she was extremely hot), the bus’ air conditioning wasn’t working, and it was very warm. The next minute a passer by handed me the phone and I spoke to an ambulance officer, about her. Anyway, I gave her some water, and stayed with her, until she was checked by an ambulance driver and put back onto the bus. We got off at the same stop, and she was looking much better. When we got off, the bus driver shook my hand, and said “Thank you for your help”. When I sat down, Jared said that he had never seen me take charge like that before, he thought I was cook. That was the biggest buzz, knowing that my husband thought that I was cool.
AS I said, I can’t put up any photos, so when I get home I will put up some photos. In the mean time let me just say that we have been to St Andrews (where Will and Kate met), Dundee, Glasgow today, and the highlight for me was David Livingstone’s home in Blantyre.
I can’t wait to come home. Thank you Nicky for the lovely email, but I can’t email back…Thank you for looking after the children, they will miss you too. Nicky wrote to me that the children had one of the forzen meals that I had left, they said “ah, this is mums cooking smell”, ain’t that sweet. I Can’t wait to cook for you again 😀
