|from this...||to this.|
Arrived home from Scotland yesterday, after six glorious weeks; but, less than twenty-four hours later, I don't feel as though I've been away at all. Thus, I am in a somewhat downbeat and reflective mood:
Things I missed while I was away
My induction hob and thick-bottomed pans
Things I loved about where I was
Islay beef mince
Islay Ales (Angus Og in particular)
Everyone waving at everyone
Water so soft you could cuddle it
Big skies and big landscapes
Popping to the shop (every village has one)
Things I didn't miss
The sheer weight of traffic
Being hassled by other drivers
All the mess on my desk at home
The noisy builders working over the road
Dead animals in the road
Chlorine in the water
Any fine weather (from what I heard)
Things I didn't love
Having to come home.
Have you been away this summer?
What did you like/dislike about your holiday?
