The Last Evening in Edinburgh – Pizza Night

エジンバラでの最終日、翌朝は義弟夫婦、甥っ子とガールフレンド、わたしたち、それぞれバラバラの時間に別々の場所に向けて出発。

Our last evening in Edinburgh.  Our group were going to leave the house at different times to different places on the following morning.

この日の夕食は宅配ピザ(正確には取りに行ったのでテイクアウト)、でした。甥っ子のガールフレンドがベジタリアンなので、インド料理やピザだとそこそこチョイスがありますし、お買い物をしてお料理をするという時間もなかなかなかったので。まぁ、宅配ピザですからね、それなりのお味です。

This evening, we had a take away of pizza.  It’s one of the easy choices for us as the girlfriend of our nephew is a vegetarian.  It was just supermarket pizza, not great but filled us up.

翌朝は早めの出発だったので、この日の夜にパッキングをして朝まで使うものや着ているものをパッキングすれば良い状態にして(英国のお天気はこの時期読めないので寒い場合、暑い場合と色々用意する必要があり、また田舎での洋服とロンドンでの洋服、夫のランニングシューズ、わたしのウォーキングブーツなどなど嵩高いものも多く、これまでにない大荷物でした)キッチンなどの整理をして、早めに休みました。

As we were leaving the house relatively early the next morning we did packing (it took us a while) after dinner so we just have to add what we use in the morning and what we were wearing to the cases.  We had to take quite a lot of stuff on this holiday because the weather in the UK is so unpredictable, we took warm clothes, light clothes, casual countryside clothes and city clothes. My husband runs so he needs running shoes and smart shoes, I needed walking shoes and smart shoes…  so much stuff!  Anyway, we did manage to stuff everything in and had an early night.

 

今回、義弟夫婦の娘(姪っ子)はちょうど大学の卒業時期に重なって毎日パーティーで忙しく会えなかったのですが、甥っ子には会えて嬉しかったです。この日は木曜にだったのですが、その週末にスコットランドで友人の結婚式があったそうなのでタイミングが良かったですが、それでもわざわざ会社のお休みを余分に取ってジョインしてくれたこと、とても嬉しく思います。義弟夫婦とも数日ゆっくり一緒に過ごすことが出来ましたし、お友達ご夫婦とも楽しい時間を過ごすことが出来ました。スコットランドは素敵なところで、景色も綺麗ですし、エジンバラは美しい街ですし、人もとてもフレンドリーでした。とても楽しい1週間ちょっとのスコットランドでの時間でした。

We weren’t able to see our niece on this trip because she was graduating from university and had lots of parties to go to, but I’m very happy that we were able to see our nephew.  The day we left the house was a Thursday and apparently he had a wedding to go to in Scotland on that weekend so it was a good timing, but even so, it was so good of him to take a few extra days off work and join us before that.  I’m happy that we were able to spend a few days with my husband’s brother and his wife and also with our friends earlier in the week.  Scotland was a wonderful place with beautiful scenery.  Edinburgh is such a beautiful city and everyone was very friendly in shops and restaurants.  We had a wonderful 10 days or so in Scotland.
