This week more than most I am SO ready to shut the front door and not leave Laura's side. There is nothing like time away to make you feel like you never ever want to leave again. I think this week was worse than most to leave as L is ill and I left straight from a weekend away at friends so we hadn't had time to snuggle and recoup before I left.
I had work in Glasgow on Monday and Tuesday and then London on Wednesday so spent Sunday and Monday nights in a hotel and Tuesday night on a friends couch - the glamorous life of a Unicorn! (If I was actually a Unicorn and it wasn't just a job title I think I may have found someway to come come every night!)
This is what my week looks like in terms of travel:
Google figures I've done over 1000 miles and it feels like that's about right! The only good thing was that all of the travel was done on a train or a tube so i could still catch up on the world. Oh except the weekend trip to Sheffield we drove for that one!
My Virgin Train ride up from Birmingham to Glasgow was hellish - they has reduced the number of carriages making the journey so there were more people than seats and after giving mine up for an old lady I spent 90 mins sat on the floors - not good value for my £111 train ticket! Thankfully the journey from Glasgow to London was the opposite a table seat the whole way and only occasionally did I have to share the space.
I have seen the countryside, the cities and A lot of train carriages. I have eaten terribly and drunk an excessive amount of diet coke but now I am home it is fading into a distant memory and I can focus on getting L well again.
As always I caught a few snaps from the trip so here is the UK from my journey:
Glasgow was where I saw most of when I wasn't in an office:
I love the UK:

There is no place like home though
I look forward to a weekend of this
Hope you enjoy yours!!!
