Relaxed From Head To Toe

When you are 10,100 miles away from home, a certain relief creeps over you as you realize nobody can reach you. There are no phone calls and text messages asking “can you come earlier?”, “can you stay later?”, “can you do extra?”, “can you drop everything, change your plans, break promises, let other people down, in order to help us out?”

Isn’t it great to feel that holiday mode…being unreachable, unavailable…you start to relax from head to toe. We all need a break from time to time. You start to feel an unbridled fondness towards anyone and everything that featured in your holiday destination.

remembering him

I have a feeling that in the months to come, when I am back in England, I will need to make a little time to be on my own and remember what it feels like to be so completely relaxed. And I shall let my mind wander back to the perfect memories of my time with Goldfinch.

  1. The body and the soul are so much improved for a break. Wow that some picnic that lovely lady is having. She has a proper tea pot and it looks like china cups. Maybe that’s where Im going wrong with my £2 Netto flask and my 5 plastic cups for a £1 from Poundland….. She also appears to have matching dress and picnic mat. That must be from Waitrose.
