Made it safely to Scotland, and have internet access over the weekend at the least. Also got to do a Border's run (boooooooks!) and picked up Jane Austen's Guide to Dating, A Clockwork Orange, and the first two Vampire Hunter D novels. I read the first one, and have decided they can be my not-terribly-good yet quite addictive guilty pleasure. Everyone's so pretty.
Mom's still in hospital, and will be for stupid tests well into next week. Blargh. After that, dunno what's going to happen.
