Yep, that’s right. I’m home again!
It feels so good. It feels even better knowing that if I’d have been today as I was yesterday, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have made it to the bus stop let alone the train home.
I’m exhausted. I feel so ill. But I actually had a decent meal and I got to relax on the sofa watching TV tonight.
So I feel better (marginally).
Tomorrow the plan is to sleep, read, eat and maybe, if I’m feeling up to it, going for coffee in town.
Sounds pretty perfect to me.
I felt horrible and shaky getting the bus, waiting in the station, and standing on the platform but once settled on the train I was fine. I loathe the whole rigmarole that surrounds the process of getting a train but I really do enjoy train journeys.
You have very little to do, very little distracting you, and if you so choose, very little human interaction. This obviously makes it the perfect time to read.
And read I did.
I finished reading Birdsong, by Sebastian Faulks, (on my kindle) which is just the most heartbreakingly beautiful book I have ever read. I also started Lonely Hearts, by John Harvey, and it’s shaping up to be an incredibly enjoyable read.
When the train pulled into the station and I knew I was finally almost home, I felt a huge relief. No stress for a couple of days. No worrying about cooking, or laundry, or cleaning for the weekend. I can relax.
My mum made a delicious pasta dish for dinner, I’ll have to give you the recipe sometime. It’s just the right sort of indulgent. It’s full of my favourite veg: courgette, mushrooms, and peppers. Chorizo plays a starring role and I think most meat-eating people would agree, it is one special kind of sausage. And cream which, although being something I’m not a huge fan of, gives the dish that extra feeling of luxury. Perfect.
My family is wonderful.
Despite our somewhat fiery discussions, we are brilliant together. I love them all. Their support is amazing.
Anyway bedtime for me! Way too tired to write anymore.
I apologise that I’ve been a bit useless at commenting on your posts for the last few days, I’ve not been in much of a state to type coherent comments for you! I have been reading though, and I’ll be back to normal soon :-)
I hope you’ve all had a lovely week!
Anything happening this weekend? Any exciting plans?
What’s your slightly naughty indulgent dish?
Do you enjoy train journeys? Do you use them as the opportunity to read for hours too?
