Day 9: Goodbye Glasgow!

Mrs L overslept this morning on her night shift!  She set her alarm incorrectly and woke with a start at 7.33……..normally would be up by 6.30!  It is amazing how well one can sleep on a skinny examination couch when one has too!!

It was the last journey back out to Battlefield on the no. 6 bus to get showered, changed and packed for the journey home to London late afternoon. It was also time to say goodbye to Steph and Kai, a lovely family – I hope I get to meet up with them again one day.  Mrs L’s week has been amazing!

There had been a vague plan to try and squeeze in one more cultural experience, a trip out to Bellahouston Park to visit the House for an Art Lover which is only open 10.00-12.30 on Saturday mornings.  However, this didn’t happen as timings would have been too tight…..by the time Mrs L got back into the city and checked her luggage into the left luggage storage at Central Station and then got the bus out to Bellahouston alongside everyone going to the nearby Ibrox stadium for Rugby 7s there would not have been enough time to do the House justice.  Mrs L will just have to add it to the list of things she still wants to do in Glasgow which include the Burrell Collection in Pollok Park; the House for an Art Lover; the Kelpies out at Grangemouth; a revisit to Glasgow University when it is all open; and moving further afield Mrs L wants to go to Harris for a holiday…….Mr L does not know this yet!

Miss A and Mr D arrived in Glasgow today at the start of their holiday for 3 days of Games spectating, starting with the Rugby 7s. It was great to meet up for lunch before Mrs L had to head home to London.  Glasgow is heaving so finding somewhere in the City centre for lunch was a bit of a challenge but third time lucky and we got a table in a Mexican street food restaurant, Topolabamba.  Our waiter was delightful but exhausted, the food was good but service less so……googling the restaurant later, it has only been open 2 weeks so a combination of new restaurant teething problems and coping with a sudden increase in the population of Glasgow City centre has perhaps been a wee challenge!

We then went our separate ways – Mrs L back to England and Miss A and Mr D off to Ibrox.  Miss A was tasked with finding Clyde 10 who lives out near Ibrox……….

Time for Mrs L to say goodbye and thank you to Glasgow, you are one amazing city – it has been a blast!
