Off to Bath, Dog in Tow
Today is the day of our retreat from Notting Hill to escape the weekend Carnival festivities. After work we're taking Olga to Paddington Station and hopping a train to Bath, where we found a B&B that accommodates dogs. We've never had Olga on a train before, so this will be an adventure! We didn't even have to buy her a special ticket -- she just rides with us.
I plan to blog from Bath, so I'll let you know how that goes. We return to London Monday evening.
I'm off to work slightly early today to join the staff & faculty mindfulness group, which gets together to meditate before school. I'm not sure my normal schedule will allow me to attend regularly, since beginning next week I'll be starting work later in the morning (in order to close the library later in the afternoon, allowing kids more use of the facilities). But I want to try to attend at least once.
I'm actually looking forward to the later start time (9:15 a.m.) so I can get more done at home before I go to work. More thoughtful blogging, for example!
