So we’re back. It is as grim as you might imagine, and me booking today off was an absolute stroke of genius. Louise has not been so lucky and has started her new placement today at Chorley A&E.
We had a great time. Leaving this time felt (for Emily and I especially) even more sad than usual. There is a real malaise and sadness that I can’t shake, but I’m sure that will clear in the coming days….won’t it?
For Emily the end of this holiday signifies the end of her childhood in some respects, and that may explain her upset and sadness. What my excuse is I don’t know.
With this feeling hanging over me, each time I look at my notebook, and think about starting to write a trip report my heart sinks, and being honest I cannot bring myself to put fingers to keys right now.
One thing I have decided is that I’m not going to rush it. Normally, I write a day in about an hour or so, and get them posted as soon as possible. The endless correction of grammar and spelling I have (and still am) going through in my book has prompted me to make sure I take my time with this one and only post it when I’m happy.
If it does end up in an ebook sooner or later this will make my life easier and your reading less frustrating. For those of you who bought my book on day one I can only apologise for the mess it was in! It isn’t as bad if you buy it now!
Writing it more slowly and maybe even writing the whole thing might be the way to go, so please don’t be anticipating it any day soon.
So I’m off to lick my wounds, eat some more and try to prepare myself for the horror of the commute and work tomorrow.
The trouble with having great holidays like this is that the come down afterwards is worse than doing cold turkey off hard drugs (I imagine!).
Till the next time…..
