I have finally returned. To be more accurate, I landed back in the UK Tuesday night, but I set off for a little get together in Nottingham the following day, barely stopping home in between. Now I’m back and have some writing to catch up on!
Amsterdam was pretty great. The trip taught me a lot of things. Firstly, it taught me about how much alcohol I can tolerate. Secondly, it taught me that I really should cut larger out of my drinking diet. Thirdly, I really don’t have any ‘photographic’ sense (is that a thing? Well, it is now!) . The latter of these lessons was proven in that I only took one blurry picture of the canals lit up at night, with a small tower on the horizon. Funnily enough, it was this photo that saved us when we got lost on the second night as I remember taking the photo – it matched us up with where we thought we were!
Whilst a lot of fun was had, the accumulative hangover that hit Tuesday morning was devastating. Maintaining a vertical stance was a battle that I struggled to wage for the entire day. It wasn’t until our flight took off around 10pm that evening that I started to feel like I may live to see another day.
I really do need to re-stabilise (not too sure if I’m joking or not) before the new job starts Monday. You know, one of those proper 9-5 office gigs? It’s just down the road from where I used to work before I moved to London, funnily enough. I’m sure I’ll be fine! In any case, as of Monday I need to having my writing schedule reinstated and readjusted to accommodate not writing at 4am… This may take some time, but we shall see.
I feel the wind of change a’blowing…
