At home, England
Mum is fond of telling me I’m still young enough to make mistakes without having to worry too much about the consequences. So, with that in mind, I returned to Massachusetts and spent a fantastic week with William, enough so that I came home with my engagement ring planted firmly on my finger and my head filled with preliminary plans for our wedding next year!
As if that isn’t enough, I decided to rent out my house and promptly found a young, newly married couple who already moved in! Consequently, all of my furniture (etc.!) is now at mum and dad’s, including my beloved striped couch from Habitat that I saved long and hard for. It’s presently taking up most of the space in the hallway but (much to dad’s dismay) it’s great for lounging on during long phone conversations. Mum suggested I sell it and laughed when I told her I’m not ready for that level of commitment quite yet!
Between work trips I plan on commuting to Boston to spend as much time as possible with William and when he goes out to sea, I’ll be here, back in my old room but that will all change after we get married.
Without knowing the expiration date on this age versus mistakes thing, I plan on going full throttle to create the kind of life I truly want, in the hopes it’ll at work out!
