Well, that’s it. I’m off. Back to Hampshire. Second year is over. My room is clear. I’m all ready to pack up the car but the driver is still asleep.
Tomorrow night I’ll be in Spain! I’m so excited! I’m not taking my laptop with me so I won’t be able to write anything while I’m there, but I shall take lots of happy snaps to show you when I get back!
It’s so weird sitting at this desk with nothing but my laptop on it. No books or little figurines, not even a cup of tea placed precariously close to the edge. My pin board is bare, my Turner poster from the National Gallery is rolled up carefully next to my suitcase, all of the ticket stubs from movies and pictures of my friends tucked away carefully in my bag. My bright yellow bedding has been hurriedly stashed away in a bin bag ready to throw in Danielle’s car.
My tiny box room all of a sudden seems so big, and I’m realizing how much I loved it. It was tiny, and it had a mold patch on the ceiling, but it also got the sun all day and when I would be sat at my desk revising on those sunny days the sunlight would be warm as it shifted through the window, which didn’t make reading ‘Jane Eyre’ for the hundredth time so bad. I also got the best view of the garden, which as we don’t ever go out out there is over-run with wild flowers and all of the cats on the road come and play in it. We also have a pear tree, it’s only a little pathetic thing that only grew two pears, but as spring rolled around it had the most beautiful blossoms. It’s quiet and secluded, just off the rest of the house, so I could escape all the bitchiness that comes with living with seven girls, and also get away from all the crazy. People barely ever cam in here, because it is so small, you could probably only fit two others in a stretch. I’m looking forward to having a double bed in the next house, and being upstairs where it might be warmer, but there was just something about this little room that I loved, and I hope that the new tenant loves it as much as I do.
Anyway, I need to have a nice black cup of coffee and some toast before hitting the road, even though Danielle is driving, I feel I have to be awake to motivate her on the four hour drive back to my house!
This might be my last post for the next 8 days, I would do that ‘queue’ thing but I’m hopeless and don’t know how!
I hope you all have a wonderful week, feel free to message me any time and I will reply the minute I can get my hands on my laptop!
Hasta La Vista! Happy Tumbling!
