It's now the morning (well, afternoon, but for me, that's pretty much the same thing) after my return to Great Britain. For what feels like the first time in three months... *I'M CLEAN*!
I had the most wonderful hot shower this morning, but the best thing was when I got out of the shower and dried myself off... I wasn't all hot and sweating again three seconds later! It seems in England I can be clean for longer than the duration of my shower. What a revelation.
Just this morning it struck me how close my birthday is. It is (counts) a mere 20 days away. Then I'll be the grand old age of 21. My recent holiday has been something of an enlightenment for me... I've learned so many new things, re-realised old things and pieced together many things to make more sense. One of those is that age means nothing. I guess almost being 21 is a good time to realise this... but I suspect a better time would be, say, 39 years old with 20 days to go to my 40th birthday. Well, like I say... I rediscovered many things while I was away, so I'll have to make a note to take another holiday shortly before I turn 40 ;)
I'm going to make a list of things I'd like for my birthday. Mainly because I've just logged into Amazon and there appear to be a million new things that have been released (or soon to be released) while I've been away. It seems I want all of them and I know there is no way I can possibly afford to buy them on my own. So stand by, I'll whip something up as soon as I've sorted out the deposit on my flat and had a gander at somewhere to live for the next year.
It's good to be back (and this two computer screens is a great thing).
