I have been back in the U.K for over a week now and it’s been wonderful!
The last few weeks at Clouds of Hope were lovely and I am so glad that I got to finish with happy memories. On my last week in Underberg Jess, Iona and I went to a Passover meal which was so much fun! I got to meet a lot of new people (ironically two days before I left) and Jess and I took the opportunity to get up and dance in front of everyone!
I then had the task of getting to the airport and dealing with planes and transfers… I thought it was going to be a lot more daunting then it was. On my first flight I sat beside a very chatting Canadian man and we debated Scottish independence, this was about 10 o’Clock at night. Then my second flight was a lot quieter. As soon as I get through customs at Heathrow I went straight to WHSmiths! I have noticed I missed a lot of little things which I didn’t even think about. Such as the £ sign on a keyboard.
Since I’ve been back I have seen majority of my family in Scotland, been through to Edinburgh for a flat party, seen a few of my friends, spent a lot of time with Sean, cooked for my family on multiple occasions, cleaned the whole house and started doing all the washing and walked my dog A LOT!
On my return my dog who I have had for nearly 8 years had absolutely no recollection of me! I still don’t think she remembers me as her owner, just the person who arrived and stayed last week. It has been wonderful to be home and being helpful.
Today I got to Skype Jess who is still at the Underberg Hostel and I got to hear all about her holiday etc. It’s sad that I don’t see her as much but I will definitely put in the effort to keep in contact with her!
