In the absence of the possibility of being whisked away by a lover to Zanzibar I have consoled myself with a celebrity crush instead!!
How hot is he?
To accompany my romanticisms I also revived some eighties/nineties music classics and could be heard humming to both Fleetwood Mac and Savage Garden with an earphone wedged in my left ear! The tunes I remembered from my teen years reminded me of youthful wishful dreams of a love yet to come and made me feel all warm and tingly, although I have to say did interfere with me trying to sleep the next morning!!!
I spent many hours spending imaginary money on craft supplies, which did materialise into the real thing on a couple of occasions and now have some new inks and journals winging their way to me! Why is it I always get the urge to be creative at the most innapropriate times, and then when I have free time can't seem to find my mojo ?
I also scoured t'internet looking for a good deal to be had for a holiday next week while the twins stay at Grannywens. I long to go to Corsica but don't have quite enough holiday tokens to manage it - it's always so expensive when travelling by oneself! The flights to New York are ridiculous at the moment although have a place to stay on arrival, and even new fave Nice seems to be just out of my reach!
Oh what to do?
I think also because I have been spoiled for company on my last few trips, both at home and abroad that I am now also a little reluctant to travel by myself? I enjoyed the fun and banter of my companions as well as the opportunity to have real live people in my photographs.
I do have itchy feet though and need to make the most of my week while the boys are being looked after.
Maybe I will take the advice of Anonymous and find myself a train? Surely a train would be fulfilling, fun and adventurous all in one, giving me just what I need??? As for getting off a bus too early. Well I never actually managed to board the one I wanted! Not sure it has left the depot yet and I can't seem to get any response when trying to contact the bus company!!!
