So this week I finished at work in Oban at Piazza (I will miss everyone lots).
We had a lovely wee send off as me and one of the other girls were both finishing on the same night, so it was all a bit sad but simultaneously exciting, as only the next day I moved back to Glasgow.
I packed myself and my hundreds of bits and bobs (a minimalist traveller I am not…) into the car with Dad and we sped off nice and early, as Dad had meetings to go to in Glasgow early that afternoon.
I spent the day unpacking, with a bit of help from my lovely friend Clare, who helped just enough not to freak out my OCD tendencies (I’m a little bit crazy when it comes to getting things tidy and ‘in the right place’).
‘The next day was super exciting as I picked up Mark from the airport. I hadn’t seen him in three months, as he has been away in Trinidad in the Caribbean, on a research trip with Glasgow University.
‘I have been so proud of him – because although it was awful not having him with me all summer, I was so pleased that he was doing something so worthwhile.
He has done so much over the last 13 weeks, that I’m still hearing new stories about it every day.
It is so lovely to have him back, and I’m looking forward to spending lots of time with him to make up for not seeing him over the summer months.
I don’t start back at GSA (Ed: Glasgow School of Art) until the 17th, so I have plenty of free time to hang out and catch up with him before I start back and start on new projects.
