I arrived back on Manchester soil a little later than anticipated but got here in one piece with all my heavy luggage. Was very tired but managed to work Bailey twice and do my laundry which was good. Need to unpack my stuff this morning and have to go into the city to do the fundraiser this afternoon. Excited to be back and can’t wait to get everything in order for fundraising. Wide awake so you know by this afternoon I’ll be exhausted but o well that’s the joy of travelling.
The puppy bounced at me like crazy when I walked through the door. It was the nicest welcome I’ve ever had I think. Missed him like crazy and was so happy to have him on my arm again.
California was a great time spent. Not as I had expected but it was fruitful for me in a way I hadn’t expected. I love my friends and family there but I have to do what is right for me right now. I know I’ll live there one day but for now Manchester is my home and working on moving out and getting things together for my career is what matters the most.
I’m not planning on traveling any time soon so feet are firmly back on solid ground. It was wonderful to spend time with my American family, Carol, Jose, Katie and Marissa are alaways going to be in my heart as a family should. Claudia is my big sister and will always be up there on my list of people I care for deeply and would do anything for. It was awesome to see them and spend time together. Wish I had seen Grace more but hey, what can you do?
It made me realize how much there is to live for right here in the UK.
But that’s all for now. Hugs MJ
