Vacations are full-time jobs

I’ve been spending a lot of time sightseeing and not blogging so much. That feels sort of naughty, like playing truant.

But there’s so much I want to see in England. When the weather is good, you just want to go out!

Yes, I’m being very touristy this time round, mostly because I have a good and patient tour guide who doesn’t complain when I stop in the middle of the road for the nth time just to take 20 photos of exactly the same thing.

I don’t think there has ever been a time in my life when I have actually been excited to see the sun pouring in through the window.

Like, never. Usual sun-inspired thoughts include “groan” and “aaaaah… liquefication”.

I don’t mind the grey days, though, as long as it doesn’t rain too heavily.

I guess I might not even mind the rain if I actually had a thick winter coat.

I still haven’t got a replacement after giving away my electric fleece coat last December. Haven’t been able to find something I really like.

I suppose that’s because I haven’t gone shopping much. I’ve been in England for two weeks and I’ve only spent maybe a total of four hours shopping, and half of that is for groceries, souvenirs and gifts.

I’m supposed to go home next Tuesday but then I realised with a sudden desperate dismay that that won’t give me enough time to see and do everything I want to and have time to blog.

So, I’ve extended my stay for another week!

That means I’ll be in England for exactly a month. Sounds long but it’s so, so short.

There are so many places with astounding views that I want to revisit again and again.

It’s like you have tons of new DVDs to watch but you keep watching your old favourite movies, leaving yourself no time to catch up with your ever-growing collection of new DVDs. You feel rather stupid about that but you can’t help yourself, right?

Yes, therefore, I always need more time. Always.

Have to go now. It’s 3 am and I have to be up in three hours to catch the coach to London again. Oh no, gonna be so exhausted, I think!

Vacations are really full-time jobs!
