It was the ratio I had wrong

Mum and Dad turned the mattress yesterday, and I tried a puffy pillow in addition to the flat one I prefer to sleep on usually. 

This had the result of making my head higher than my feet.  I suspect that without the big pillow the bed would have been just as bad as before (shh... don't tell the Olds), but with the correct pillow:mattress-squidge ratio a good night's sleep was had.


I am going to London to look at the Queen... ok actually it's to see my little brother who lives there.  Mum's coming too, and we're going to see the 39 Steps this evening.

This trip home has been a bit of a nostalgia tour for me, in that my parents are moving to Wales after 30+ years in the Shire and this will be my last visit to their old(current) house.

Over the last two days I have driven round for a look at the area and today's trip into London, something we did fairly often as I grew up, will be the last one I make from Milton Keynes train station.  To be honest that's not something I'll miss!

After today I need to head back to Glasgow, for the remainder of the school holidays are all filled up with a variety of enjoyable activities.  My boyfriend's family still live down here, so we'll have to come back down at some point. 

It's not a goodbye to the town - but it will be strange coming here to visit someone else's family.

Changes have a ripple effect, don't they? You would think that your parents move would not affect you since you don't live with them anymore, but it does. It is good that you are taking a few moments to remember.

Glad you got some sleep.

Going 'home' is always strange ...

Can you just go and look at the Queen like that? Who knew?
