We had a great day out in Glasgow with Rory & Jane in chilly Spring sunshine. I've lived in Scotland over two years but today was my proper visit to Weegieland; the other trips were just stumbling in the dark to concerts.
A highlight was the Scotland Street School Museum, a beautiful building designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh. There's old classrooms and inkwells and pinafores and chalkboards textbooks and best of all a biscuit tin full of Cuisenaire rods! I plunged my hand right into the pile, the lovely wooden clinky clink noise they made reminded me of how much I hated stinking maths.
There's also some hopscotch thingies in the corridors. We hopped around for ages trying to remember the rules. It was much more of a cardio workout than I recalled.
