This time next month I'll be in London again, I can't wait.
Life has been quite...interesting. I've had horrible days where my depression took over but I really shouldn't complain. I have a fairly good life, supportive friends and semi-supportive family. I've met both of my heroes in my life and I have wonderful friends. I was financially sound to splurge on myself. But unfortunatly I used buying things as a medication for my depression and it cost me. I'm not broke but I can't afford to splurge anymore...and yet I do. I'm getting better, I'm forcing myself not to buy things I don't need. I'm forcing myself but it's hard. It's sort of like eating with me, I eat as a medication...both are destructive but I'm fully aware my overeating is more harmful than my spending.
Anyway, I didn't want to make this post negative..and yet I did. Figures huh? :P

I'll be in the UK from July 1st to July 17th, it's a longer trip than 2009. I'm going to some new places this time! I'll be in the same places as last time; London, Edinburgh, Bath, Lacock, Stonehenge, Glencoe, and Paris. But this time I'll also be on the Isle of Skye and in Glasgow!
This time I'm going with one of my best friends and I'm so so thankful for that gift. During my last tour I made a wonderful friend in Monica. I still talk to her all the time and I love Monica, she's an awesome person. I hope my best friend and her hit it off, I'm sure they will! Oh yeah, Monica will be going on the trip again if you couldn't tell.

While in London I plan on doing some of the same things but I'll also be doing new things. I'm going to the Doctor Who Experience, Much Ado About Nothing, the Museum of Natural History, and hopefully the Eye.

I'm very excited about this trip and finally meeting my best friend in person. ♥

If there's one thing I am going to do, once I get my driving license back, is make the time and effort to get out to new places. I used to love and still really miss all the places we used to go, but I've a real yearning to go re-visit some places I went to on holiday as a kid but also see more of the country I live in.

I've never been to London, I know I'll hate it, but I've never been there and that's pretty lame.
I've never cast a fishing line into the sea off the west coast (south Wales yes, but not with any seriousness).
I've actually seen a loch. Passed a couple of signs when we went to buy Gromit and Wile-E as pups, but we had a schedule and our minds were occupied each time with going to get a puppy.
Meh, I don't even have a passport, never had one! There's ferries from the Tyne over to Amsterdam, I've looked at the prices quite a few times and always said "yep, next year we'll get passports in the spring then go over in the early summer..." never happens.

Eating & spending as med's - well I've done both plenty of times, what really trashed me out was turning to drink. I wouldn't wish that addiction on my worst enemy. Once it takes hold it's a rapid spiral downwards and a bloody hard climb back up. It's also a shocking killer on the weight front, I still can't get over how quick I gained such a large amount of weight... or how long I know it's going to take to get it back off.
I'm just glad I've kicked the drinking and this time seem to have found something wake up inside me to see just why I don't want to go back to it.

Crikey, my reply's almost depressing isn't it? lol, sorry about that!

Oh that's alright, let it off your chest!

I didn't even realize you can get to Amsterdam from Tyne! If I knew I'd probably schedule one extra day and go, that sounds fun! Eh, next time I suppose.

I really hope everything works out for you. :)

lol :-)

Yeah, the usual ferry is an overnight thing, ends up being overnight on the way out with either a few hours there before returning to get back here in the late evening or a day to spend in Amsterdam and an overnighter again to return.

Nah, I'm all good now, I can't explain it but perhaps I just reached a point where something changed in me and said enough is enough. I like being more the old me again :-)
