My trip back to the UK was sensational. My folks have moved fairly near a train line and just by the canal, so if you want to go to the next town, you can walk along the canal or get a quick train or bus. They are within walking distance of my sister, and all sorts of chippies, pubs, shops, restaurants- it's changed their life in a pretty dramatic way. Their old place had wonderful views but was up on the moors and totally isolated and windswept. Now, my stepmum can walk to wherever she wants and has total freedom. The weather was gorgeous while we were there and I got a huge surge of longing to be living there again, which is something I rarely to never feel. Of course, I need to remember that I had all that time off and if I was living there now I would be moaning about the fucking weather and having to work crazy hours and couldn't spend all day pootling along the canal to see art galleries and whatnot. Still, I don't know whether it was just the long time since returning but I have never seen the UK with such rose tinted spectacles. All my nieces and nephews have grown into such adorable adults too- in the blink of a fucking eye. I'm going to make a point of trying to get there way more often - not that the current absence was planned or owt.
You come at the Queen, you best not miss.
