At first my trip seemed like small speck on the horizon, then I arrived in the UK and it felt like I was standing on a hilltop looking out to a big view with limitless time to explore. Alas time is running out all of a sudden. London is calling again and I can faintly hear the howl of a basset hound across the globe.
It’s been a wonderfully relaxed time in Herefordshire. A few trips, limitless family time and plenty of inspiration for my garden at home. But I can’t kick back forever and I shall be soon returning to London for a full-on programme with friends and my in-laws. Not to mention the last fling to fill up my luggage.
It’s a fine balance between being with people and doing stuff together without exhausting everyone. Previous trips have been a bit fraught with lots of dashing about all over the country. This time I’ve been more focused, two locations and acceptance that you can’t do it all. I feel extraordinarily blessed that so many friends are descending on London to meet up with me. The party atmosphere is already building as we swop messages about where to go, what to do and where to eat.
I am sure that the next week will gallop by. No it is just a question of hanging on tight and enjoying the ride
