We currently have two weekend trips scheduled, one to Edinburgh and one to Bath, and we're going by train. Though we're taking the same line for both trips, we leave from different stations. That means figuring out the train schedules and choosing between Off-Peak, Off-Peak Day, Super Off-Peak, and Ranger and Rover tickets, Single and Return, Flexi or Fixed. Rail Discount cards are available as well, but for some you need to be a resident of the UK, and eight weeks does not a resident make.
So, today we rose early for us (11:30 AM, which my body still insists is 6:30 AM and is asking whether or not I've lost my mind). I did make a go of it, really. I checked e-mail, worked with Triberr and even started this blog post, then I (ahem) petered out and went back to bed. So, we didn't leave the flat until 4:30 PM.

Walked to Leicester Square and visited the TKTS Booth where we like to purchase seats to the West End shows for half price (some shows that is). We decided to see Spamalot. We saw it in 2005 in NYC, but we're both Monty Python fans, and with tickets available for half price at 25 GBP each, we decided to see it again. Spamalot is based on the movie "Monty Python's Search for the Holy Grail."

Now, we're back at the flat and I'm going to add pictures, check e-mail, etc. then make an early night of it. Right. It's 2:30 AM now. Yup, it's an early night all right. Bye.
