The whole experience of being part of the protest was fantastic but it was a little draining. Suffice to say, the combination of being in the Meadows for a day and having hayfever means my chest is all clogged up now. What else do you expect when you go on holiday?
I’m back down in Devon following a train journey of over 7 hours. Thank goodness for 14 day advance first class tickets. I don’t know what I would have done without the almost constant provision of drinks. Oh the luxury. That was £29 very well spent.
I’m back with the family again. Grandad has been moved to a lovely community hospital, I hear. When I’ve stopped sniffling I’ll go and visit. It was my sister’s 21st birthday yesterday. I can’t believe she’s all grown up now! Apparently she had a lovely day which was just brilliant news.
I really must get my WISE gifts sorted. I’m sure I’m going to end up being one of the last people to send and receive mine. As I’m so far from home at the moment I’m not going to check in until mid next week and I really need to send the presents before then. I’m beginning to get some good ideas as my WISE victim has been posting some very interesting things on her blog lately… I’m sure there are only so many things you can add to a blog that you wouldn’t mind for under the price limit. Anyway, my gifts will come with a little of my sense of humour (I hope), so you have been warned.
