>> back to the bailiwick

€9.99 flights to England
too cheap to pass
over the Thames and back to Essex
brisk morning walks with my best friend
and her dogs
catching up with family and friends
lots of tea and cake
a tiny bit of culture
plenty of gin
and foggy mornings

I was thoroughly spoilt and loved every moment
even the initial sensory overload of being able
to understand every conversation
the insane amounts of traffic
and the flatness of dear old Essex

see you in Spring

** let light in

there are new year posts
some are achievable
many are forgotten
so I choose a word
I write it down and stick it up 
to remind me each day
to use what I already have
renovate each corner of my life
