It feels really strange being back in blighty, simply because it doesn’t feel strange. It doesn’t feel like I left at all in fact. I was met by Nanny and Mum and my Aunty Sue at Heathrow, equipped with a homemade glittery sign attached to a fly swatter!
They met me with the requested welcome committee supplies of a flask of green tea, but I got a box of macaroons to boot. We then headed to Nanny’s for some crumpets and Marmite, the staple foods I had been missing.
I’m already enjoying the creature comforts, the simple things in life, the water from a tap luxuries and the distinct lack of cockroaches. My sleeping pattern is all over the shop. I was up at 5am in Kathmandu and didn’t get to sleep until 1:30am in England, so only 1 hour sleep in 25 has turned me upside down. Very excited for the summer so it feels good to be back.
