What I'm looking forward to this summer

  •  The flight home - not a fan of waiting in airports, but flights I love - movies, food and drink. What's not to like!
  • Quality time with friends and family
  • Lucerne and my bedroom
  • Running in the Scottish countryside
  • Taking lots of photographs
  • A cup of tea (they taste better at home!)
  • Sitting with my book on the patio in the sunshine (it will happen at least once!)
  • Reading my book on the sofa when it's raining in between naps
  • Being woken by the sunshine and the lawnmower 
  • The peace and quiet of the village- no church sermons or late night parties around!
  • Driving a manual car on quiet, pot-hole free roads
  • Crying at weddings -it's a given!
  • Going to the supermarket!!!Marks and Spencers food!Yeeeaaahhh...choices, choices,choices!
  • Having clean feet-no more 'jinja' (red) feet for a while
  • Watching a bit of the BBC
  • Baking at home
  • Doing some tourist things in Glasgow
  • The radio
  • The Edinburgh Fringe
  • Eating mussels from a pot
  • The weekend papers
  • Drinks around the bar in the back room at home (the 'freezer'!)
  • One of my dad's famous BBQs
  • Free range, organic, boiled eggs for breakfast 

I am counting the days until I am holiday (this is made harder, due to the fact that I have not got a flight as yet!), but this also means I am counting the days until I leave Uganda and my wee world here. Sad, happy, happy, sad.

Ok-this year Juneathon hasn't worked out for me. I had my last long run with my buddy on the weekend but apart from that the only exercise I have been doing was packing boxes and lifting plant pots. I'm going to try again for Janathon!


  1. ooooh, sounds like an amazing summer! Have lots of fun! xoxo

  3. I have never seen better than this site.
