And now I’m back…. From far Up North…
Where we had some absolutely stunning sunsets last week. Night after night, they were just absolutely beautiful. The skies do seem that bit bigger, up there.

I finished my project on Tuesday, and Yorkshire bade goodbye to me in typical cold and rainy fashion.

Miserable. It’s like it’s Autumn already.
Up until Tuesday lunch time, I still didn’t know whether I needed to get on a plane to Finland that evening. I didn’t in the end, but it was a tense couple of hours whilst I tried to work out the logistics on that one.
Speaking of logistics, I still haven’t booked us a holiday. We’re supposed to leave in less than 2 weeks so…. I should really just book something already. I think I’m over-thinking it because it’s our 5th wedding anniversary, but I just need to get over it and find a nice quiet beach that we can go and sit on with our books for 4 days. That’s really all I want.
Small print update: my Dad has now had his Big Operation whereby they removed everything that had or was suspected of having cancerous tissue. It was a fairly serious procedure and he now has to take it slow while he recovers and gets used to his new setup. Still, he’s dealing with it all with remarkably good grace and even ate a big roast dinner 2 days post op, which made the surgeons roar with laughter when they found out. Not the recommended recovery plan, turns out!
I’m really enjoying being back home and (aside from the obvious things like seeing my husband) actually being able to do some cooking, organising and general nesting activities. It’s been great, although I’m now looking for my next project. Gluten free doughnuts maybe?
I will miss my temporary home up North, though. The hotel I stayed in did really feel like a second home by the time I left; I had my regular room and routines. The girls on reception were really friendly and we had a little moment when we realised this was the last check out. I’ll also miss this view in the morning, which never failed to relax me and make me feel like the day was full of possibilities and the chance of beautiful things.
All change! I wonder where I’ll be off to next?
