In the haze of starting life in a new city (bank accounts, sim cards, national insurance numbers, oh my!) I haven’t had much down time in which to dwell on all the lovely people I miss in Ireland. Though those thoughts weigh on my mind in the few minutes before I drift off to sleep each evening.
Still, the sun is shining, I have an amazing cousin and some excellent friends who have been very kind to me so far, and I ticked a lifelong ambition off my list by watching tennis in Wimbledon!
I start work this morning. Here’s hoping they don’t change their minds as soon as they see me!
