Notes from 2018 // note 2

Here is my second week of the year. It has been a funny old year so far.
Picking up from where we left last time. Still in England (not now then I mean!). Gloomy eerie England. It was bitterly cold. We were up in the hills, staying with my mum and stepdad in Malvern. SLow days that got dark before you know it. Days that crept into one another. But oh did we visit beautiful places. I had never ventured into the Cotswolds before. It was like being on an old tv series set. Quaint and eerie at the same time. All the stone and fields and cottages one could desire.
We also celebrated, had a lovely meal in a lovely pub and didn’t stop eating from there really.
We attempted to walk it off on one of the coldest, brisk days my bones have had the pleasure of feeling in a LONG while. The hills in Malvern are a must, especially on a beaut of a day like this. We HAD to warm up after with a hot cup of cocoa and all the works. It was bliss.
We visited small towns, with pretty shops and good baked goods.
Overall we just explored, ate and snapped away. It was good to get back to the UK.

So. I took a little old break there didn’t I? Old habits and all. Truefully I have found it a tad difficult finding my feet in this new year. I have felt stuck and displeased that things weren’t put in place in time to be able to start afresh. But then when does it matter when you start and don’t start. I should know that by now, that my main lesson is to live slow and enjoy everything as it happens. Rather than regretting or living in the past and fretting about the future and planning away my present. Any way. I took a break. I needed it and it felt good. I thought I would still catch up with these weekly updates though because I want to look back and have the memories of this time. I think that’s what is important too!
SO let’s step back in time and appreciate it, remember it and enjoy it in the present. Let’s go back to those early eerie days of January.
My next instalment will cover my trip to Bath.
