So here I am, “home” at last, in my family home here in Scotland. It is good, but weird, to be back, but nice to be seeing the family again.
Equally nice is the amount of downtime – time for nice long chats, time to return all the emails and letters I owe, time to go for nice long walks, time to watch TV and read and chill and work on stuff for next year. I am also learning to love the utter cheesiness of Freeview (bad videos filled with hos! Oprah! Scrubs twice a day!) and watching it with my snarky siblings.
Yesterday I had my first driving lesson – it went OK actually, and I get to do it in a sweet-ass Mini. Result. I have a two hour lesson tomorrow which I think may be a little traumatic though. I’d just love to be able to drive!
Both S and P are jobhunting – cue me re-writing their CVs for them (oooh, lifeskill!) and tryng to help them. I can’t really get a proper job (“uh, yeah, I’m leaving town in a month” doesn’t tend to cut it!), but have put some flyers out for babysitting – I hope I get some jobs. Fingers crossed.
Tomorrow it’s town (I’m taking S and P to help them find hobbies – I’m all about the big sister vibe this week!), then driving, then groceries, then dinner (I’m making fajitas with all the trimmings – yeeeeah). At the weekend I think I’m going out in Elgin with the girls. Should be interesting – I’ve never been out there.
Right, bedtime. It’s 11.20. Lord bless vacation!
