Taking the High Road Again

Tomorrow after work, all things going well, I’ll drive on up to Helensburgh to spend a week visiting family, friends, and taking the opportunity to relax right bang in the middle of a pretty busy period at work.

By virtue of the fact she got dooced recently, Fliss is already up there with Elisha and has been since Monday. The house has been pretty peaceful without Elisha running around, although it does feel completely empty without her and Fliss, so it’ll be good to see them again.

Fliss wants me to stick the mountain bikes in the car so that we can go for a ride or two during the week. It’s over seven years since we had the bikes transported from Helensburgh down to London – kind of hard to believe that much time has gone by since I rode about Helensburgh on my bike. I’ll definitely have to check out some of old haunts to see if I’ve still got the skills.

It’s good that I’ve re-discovered my enthusiasm for going back home again. Couple of years back I kind of resented the non-holiday and thought of it as a waste of leave, but from last xmas I’ve really enjoyed myself each time, so it does feel like a proper break as opposed to a chore.

Hopefully we’ll be as lucky with the weather during the next week as we were at Easter and over my birthday weekend. Especially since I’ll be taking my skateboard with me again, to see if I can score me some more early morning ramp time in the sunshine before the big boys wake up! 😀
