We touched English soil at 11:30pm and I arrived home at 2:15 Wednesday morning. I went to work as usual, came home and went to some house viewings. I did a food shop, a load of washing and Thursday and Friday were pretty much a tired blur. Yesterday we went home to my parents to celebrate a few birthdays and an early easter too, and it was lovely. Ever since my trip to Rome at the end of March I haven’t really felt like I’ve touched the ground. With my trip to Gambia being only a week later and it being such a busy, working holiday I am feeling pretty tired. But I’m a homebody, and being home feels good. I’m looking forward to our long weekend coming up - some R&R is definitely in order. The sun will be shining this week and that will definitely help – I got quite ill in Africa and I’m still not feeling 100% so I’m hoping the weather will help me recharge – it usually does.

I have so many ideas and plans but sometimes you just need to take some time and get things sorted before you rush in to the next thing. I want to sort a lot of the flat out and tidy up; spring is the perfect excuse and I want to really get organised, but I don’t want to push myself too much whilst I’m still not feeling great. That’s the problem with me; I write very long to do lists that I try and achieve in a too short time-span and the pressure isn’t good for me, and I don’t get much done and feel bad about it. I’ll be trying to find a balance for the next month and take things as they come. But gosh, it feels good to be home.
Posts coming soon about my trip to Gambia and some travel tips for Rome
