This is myself and Bryony last night - the evening I ventured home to see the family because sometimes family is needed. It is very rare that I visit Harrogate and see all three of my siblings and my mum. In fact, my visits to Harrogate are fairly rare anyway, which is ironic considering I live a very feasible forty-five minute drive/train ride away.
But last night was nothing short of bliss. We had my mum's goats cheese salad, sat in the garden, and soaked in the evening sun. I am really grateful that life at the moment has given me the time to do this. My visits to see family are rare and the time available just to relax is rare... But when these two things happen, the rare opportunity is not to be neglected.
