Cambridge: Colleges and Crocuses

Lovelies, I am so behind in the blog world. On reading, on posting. I am on a fortnight cover placement for work, loving it, but much busier. So, this post is about two weekends ago, the last one in February, not the one just gone.

Cambridge with the family for my grandma's birthday weekend. A hotel with soft double beds, fluffy white dressing gowns and a feast of a breakfast. Roses, freesias, carrot cupcakes. Never Let Me Go at the Arts Picturehouse, S and I, as the final credits rolled, tears streaming down our faces, laughing at our silliness. Thai for dinner, the car headlights glinting across the other side of Parker's Piece. Charity shop whizz rounds and vintage clothes shopping. Catching up with still studying (medic) friends. A walk on The Backs Sunday morning, sky blue, sun bright, air cold. Crocuses, catkins, the river. Back via the market, flowers wrapped in brown paper.

Feeling homesick as I walked back to the train station, weekend over, homesick for a place that hasn't been my home for over two years now.

  5. Oh, and I think the homesickness for old homes is totally normal - I think it's nostalgia for the life you once lived, regardless of how happy you are with your life at the moment. That's how it is for me, anyway!
