I need a break again.
Well, it's absolutely ages since my last entry, it seems. Last Monday (nearly two weeks ago now) I took a trip to Portsmouth. I wanted to take a look at the Spinnaker Tower there and get a bird's eye view of the Portsmouth harbour. Some friends had pointed me to a website where I could look up the cheapest means of getting there by train, which was really helpful. The weather was glorious - I couldn't have asked for more and the views were well worth going for. I took a look around the HMS Victory and the remains of the Mary Rose before heading back home again. The following weekend, I visited my parents again. Mum's dementia is getting worse and I've a feeling I'll have to stop working in the shop on a Saturday so I can dive home at short notice. I'd also like one day of the week strictly to myself. I'm either studying, in the shop or at church - all seven days accounted for. Everything on the home-front seems to be going to pot at the moment. Last week the washing machine packed in, and this morning my Freezer gave up the ghost - so I've got laundry piling up and food going to waste. I need another weekend away.
