Previously, we had been told that any mail that arrived before this last Monday was sent back to wherever it came from. Because of this, Austin still did not have a bookbag or a SIM card for the phone she bought. (She wanted to get the same SIM card as Amy, Libby, and I, which is a GiffGaff, but they only send those through the mail.) I had asked GiffGaff to send another one to Austin, which was suppose to have arrived yesterday, but never did. If it weren’t for me receiving a letter from my sister, I would believe that we never would get mail.
But besides that, we had heard from our liaison that somewhere in the nearby town was a gold post box for a Paralympian who won a gold metal (and was from the area). We were very interested and therefore, decided to investigate it. We found it on a map and walked quite a ways to see it and get a picture with it.
As you might imagine, it was a gold post box, so it looked pretty much like all the regular red ones. But it was still exciting to think that someone within walking distance of that box had a gold metal and was an Olympic athlete. I am not going to lie and say it was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen, or anything like that, but the idea of was very beautiful, and I was glad we found it.
Afterwards we walked to Tesco, which we had seen on the map was near it and bought just a few groceries. We find ourselves at grocery stores a lot since we can not carry everything we really need, or cannot find it. So we have to go back every few days, but that’s ok. I like grocery stores.
For dinner, Amy cooked some frozen chicken nuggets, rice, and corn. It was a tasty and easy meal. So easy, I will not insult your intelligence by telling you how to cook those things.
May all your days be filled with travelling and seeing with open eyes!
