mum_dad_web.jpgEverybody says I look really well. It’s the first thing they say when they see me. Even I can tell I look better, although I’ve put all the weight back on that I lost in Ibiza. When I tell people how much weight I’ve put on, they nod silently. I should stop fishing for someone to say I haven’t.

I’m just back from a few days at my parents. I decided to go there for a few days last week, as I’d hit a bit of a wall. I was exhausted and down and I needed to recharge. I spent five days there and I feel like a different person now. Louie came to fetch me from the car to carry my bag up to the flat. First he said you look well. Followed by and you are in a good mood! I don’t think I’ve been much fun recently.

The pictures are from my parent’s house and garden.
