Thanks for joining us!
I should begin by pointing out that the picture above is not Sam & John. It’s what Sam & John aspire to, but an image of us falling off paddle boards into three feet of murkey water in Hove Lagoon – as we were last week – wouldn’t have set the right tone. It is a picture I took of a lovely couple while waiting for the West Pier mumurations. Despite our fledging steps & falls, I remain hopeful that Sam & I will strike a similar pose to the one above at some point on our travels – I just hope that someone isn’t using my camera to capture the image!
After what feels like months of planning and we are now spending our last night at Landseer Road before final catch ups with family & flying out in the 13th.
It’s funny how exciting everything was during the planning stage, all of a sudden it feels very real & tough decisions are having to be made. I felt real pangs of guilt as I lined up my shirts & T-shirts & advised them which ones had got through the first cut & which were going straight to storage in the loft. I found myself apologising to my beloved Vespa t-shirt. If I can’t easily part with inanimate attire how will I say goodbye to our Greyhound Ruby – a least she isn’t heading for the loft though.
