It appears living alone in the house was nowhere near as easy and idealistic as I'd hoped for.
So yes. I desperately needed a break, so I packed a bag and went to London. I called my Grandparents who live just outside the city in Kent, and took the train out to stay with them. And here I still am. I have drunk plenty of tea and coffee, spent time with Amber (of course - this has been wonderfully brilliant), visited art museums, and even spent today in Dover. There is nothing quite like walking along the sea front with a good friend to clear the cobwebs away from your mind.
I decided to go see a few London agencies yesterday. I guess I'm feeling like I need a change of scenery, to adopt a new life for a while. So, we shall see the outcome of that within the next few days I hope.
I am ready for something to change.
