Today I booked my ticket for my first visit home in just over 5 years, leaving December 15 for a fortnight. I'm very excited, my family is over the moon and the Hubster has stoically agreed he'll make it through Christmas without me. Best of all I will get to spend time with my 89yr old Nana who misses me badly.
I told my mum my only requirements are as follows: a bacon butty everyday, a curry at least four times, crispy duck, cold lucozade, a couple of M&S Prawn Mayo sarnies, a trip to Bath to shop and wallow in it's beauty, and a day by the sea. Luckily she and my brother live within easy reach of the last two, so I'm sorted!
This seems highly appropriate right now, even though I will be leaving my love here this time!
