Two weeks and three days in England seemed to disappear in the blink of an eye. Oh how difficult it was to say goodbye this time. Oh how I wished for the volcanic ash to appear again and delay my return...but it wasn't to be.
Mr Ayak collected me from the airport, accompanied by bags of food to stock the fridge. I don't know how he managed to buy it as he's not earning any money yet but he'll borrow rather than see me starve. We just had time for a coffee and a chat before he set off back to the hotel, and to return the car he had borrowed to collect me. I'll see him again in a few days.
Beki and Poppy were very pleased to see me and as a result of them bouncing all over me with excitement it was pretty late before I managed to stumble into bed.
Stella has just sent me a few photos of Billy and I, and I'll share a couple with you here. They really just sum up the wonderful relationship that I managed to build with Billy in such a short time. Memories I will cherish and keep close to my heart until I see him again.
