Well, England/London was brilliant as always and heart-breaking to have to leave. The trip to Bel Canto on the Saturday was definitely worth the trip alone and very reasonable considering, it is in the heart of London and the height of the tourist season. Me and my sister have decided that we'll do it again next year for our birthdays, as they both fall in July. But next time, we plan to stay in London and make a weekend of it.
I didn't get to the Van Gogh in Britain exhibition, the last ticket sold out as we were trying to buy them and there was nothing available until the Thursday but unfortunately, I was back home by then. I was hoping to do a quick weekend trip before it finishes on 11 August but it's just too expensive as the car had to be taxed and is also in getting serviced. But that was the only disappointment over the weekend. We had some nice pub lunches and trips to the Sussex Downs and the coast, and at Wilmington, I even met a 'long' man!
So, all in all, it was a very enjoyable weekend and to be honest, I've been struggling since I came back home. I am just so unsettled and do not want to be here. I cannot relate to the culture/the politics or most of the people. I have outgrown Ireland and really feel that I need to leave for a few years, at least.
I've been looking at jobs in London and there is one in a hospital in the same role I have here, that I'm really tempted to apply for. It closes on Monday so I might send off the application over the weekend. As Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson said or rather sang, 'There must be more to life than this.'
