As usual we spend the day at home after a big day out, and yesterday was one of those! ;-)
More time is spent on the blog (why the heck do I take so many pictures???) and more shopping. We have found an Aldi, not far from ADSA, so we give that a try. Patricia had been out during the morning to do some exploring around the shops as she needed some sewing items. I keep myself occupied as usual. I have my laptop, sodoku puzzles, e-reader, card making materials, sketch book and drawing utensils and some knitting work. Half of it hasn't even been out of my suitcase...
So, the rest of the afternoon is spent with reading, sudoku puzzles and answering email messages. There was too much outstanding stuff to leave it too long.
Oh, and Patricia has finally been able to get the TV going, which means that I will be spending lots more time in the kitchen as I can take only so much TV in a day: not from 8 in the morning till bedtime. I don't mind though, Patricia loves her TV and can watch without interruptions and I do my thing in a different corner. It's all in a day's work. ;-)

At the event we check our answers with the CO and get the go-ahead to log. Patricia joins us here again and we walk into town to find a few more earthcaches. It's earthcache galore here in Edinburgh, but you have to know your rocks and minerals, because it's all about rocks!
To keep a long story short, we go home with 6 smileys, 5 of which are for earthcaches, and an earthcache souvenir.
