UPDATE: Found a great hostel in Glasgow for tonight and the owner is treating us like ROYALTY. Thanks to John Sharp from North Lodge Hostel, 162 North St, Glasgow. He will even pick us up from the bus station at midnight!
ORIGINAL: Hey – I am flying into Glasgow, Scotland tonight with my 5 children. I say this for 2 reasons:
1. I am showing off.
My wife, who is my right hand, is away in Mexico for a week and I, Andrew Jones, SUPERDAD, am single handedly taking my 5 young children on a flight from Frankfurt to Glasgow, and then on a train to Aberdeen and then a ferry to Orkney. And all without my wife who keeps us all organized.
Beat that you LAMER DADS out there who can hardly handle an AFTERNOON of babysitting your pathetically small family of 3 children, even when you are all staying at home and sticking your kid’s eyeballs to the TV, as opposed to me – Andrew Jones SuperDad – who is pushing his kids through airport security systems and constantly counting to make sure they are all still following behind. Especially the 3 year old, and keeping in mind my DIABETIC daughter Abigail who is 9 and might totally go HYPER or HYPO or HYPER-HYPO or something WORSE, something unprecedented even in the field of extreme diabetic seizures . . a strangely new alien medical condition previously unimagined, a hyper-spasmatic-supersized-seizure-the-mother-888-of-all-diabeticseizures-to-end-all-seizures . . . . and all on my watch!
[marcs cat just walked across my keyboard and typed those 888’s – behold – the worlds first blogging cat!!]
2. I am struggling to find accomodation. Youth Hostels are filled up. We arrive at Glasgow Prestwick at about 2200 and will be in the city about midnight. And i really do not want to be lugging my children around the streets of Glasgow at midnight looking for accomodation. Otherwise i will have to stop bragging about being a SuperDad, as in Number 1.
So . . . if you can make a recommendation or help me organize a nights accomodation in Glasgow, please send me an email . . soon. Thanks.
