Home Sweet Home
I arrived home to an enthusiastic welcome from the dogs and MrAyak...and also to an empty fridge, a pile of Mr Ayak's ironing, a water cut followed an hour later by a power cut. I unpacked and sniffed the bacon and brie that I'd packed in my suitcase on Sunday night, and am pretty certain it hasn't gone off. Although I have risked eating it already with no ill effects....there's no way I will throw bacon in the bin!
The power and water finally came back in the evening so I set about catching up with my washing. The sun is shining today, it's a little chillier, but it's only 9.20am and I was still able to sit outside for my early morning coffee.
I'm always happy to be home, but I feel a little unsettled this time. I miss Billy and my daughter so much it hurts. If only there was some way I could split myself in two and be in both places. I bought lottery tickets when I was in England in the hope that I would win and be able to buy myself a private jet that could whisk me off to England whenever I feel like it.....but it's just a dream of course.
For the time being I'll have to settle for the webcam and look forward to my next visit in April, which will be Billy's first birthday.
