I am exhausted!
I had been planning to take the train up to Ayr in 4 weeks time, to give Mr H a break from driving down here; plus I've always wanted to do the train journey, which takes about 8 hours (the same as driving). I've been a bit anxious about doing it, which involves 2 changes in big city stations, manoevering on and off the trains etc., and hadn't definitely decided about it. After this weekend we agreed that it probably wouldn't be a good idea as unless things change a lot in the next month, I would be so knackered after the trip that I'd spend half my long weekend up there completely wiped out. I'll leave it til after the new year when I'm more back to 'normal' and can appreciate the trip more; so Mr H will be back down here in 4 weeks time.
Yes I could fly up, but I dislike flying and don't like the hassle of airports and planes at the best of times; and it would cost a whisker short of £200 for the pleasure.
Mr H and Django have just left for their trip North, it feels very quiet here now... it will be odd not having Django waking me up in the morning or wanting to go out or be fed. I'm looking forward to the peace, but will miss his company. Oh well he will have a lovely time in Scotland with lots of exercise and new scents to investigate.
Thus starts the next month of the journey....
