Max is enjoying the low windows in our place, while Mom, or rather “Mum,” has nightmares about him opening the window and falling down onto the cobblestones below. We’re getting a door gate to put temporarily across the window, just in case. Oh you brits, so casual about toddler safety! Or maybe it’s just that our Air BnB hostesss has a 14 year old, not a 1.5 year old. Riiight. Regardless, Max is learning quite a lot from observing the “natives”, whether across the street at the nursery or at the local park. No one yet has shown him how to catch a pigeon, which is quite disappointing in his eyes.
We’re slowly getting those “must haves” accomplished. Two of us have our residence cards, one of us has a mobile, and we have a bank account – but with no money in it. Ahhh logistics, so boring yet so necessary. I will say it’s nice here that there are so MANY mobile phone options that all seem to be pretty good.
And in other oh so exciting news, I ordered a Kindle touch yesterday on Prime day to replace my poor lost Kindle. Well, I think it’s lost. I know I didn’t pack it, and I haven’t seen it since North Carolina. Soon I shall be reading once again.
All for now – cheerio!
