So here I am in my unit on the coast. I have my books, my laptop, my music, and a good red. Bliss.
When I first arrived, I felt good. I drove the two hours with no incident, stopping off for a coffee along the way. I found the unit, thanks to my husbands excellent directions, and set about settling in.
And then it really started to sink in that I was on my own for a whole week. So throughout the afternoon, I have felt in turns excited, bored, homesick, and content. I think it’s just going to take a bit of getting used to.
And when I realise that it really is the first time, EVER, that I have had this amount of time to myself, I’m prepared to cut myself some slack and just go with all the feelings as they present themselves.
The most pressing emotion is the ‘no people’ one. Boy, do I miss them all already. And that’s not a bad thing, I keep trying to tell myself 🙂
So tomorrow, I am off to the street markets that are on every Sunday and will enjoy a nice breakfast and coffee in one of the many cafe’s I spied on my walk this afternoon.
And, hopefully, Sunday afternoon will be spent working on my novel and other writing bits and pieces.
I’m rather looking forward to tomorrow 🙂
