thread Bea headed back to London today, having arrived on Christmas day after a few days in Spain..
I'm heading back tomorrow once I drop Minilluminator home at lunchtime.

One of the main reasons I headed for the hills last weekend, with a night at the Nevis Inn bunkhouse, was to get some peace and quiet before being stuck here for a week. My mum is basically fine, but I'm running out of patience and am a bit fed up with being seen as her excuse to do very little and "have a rest from being busy" because I will do everything. Busy? She's 89, on her own, long retired obviously, and spends most of the day drinking tea, sleeping and reading the fucking Telegraph. I'm the one who could use a fucking rest.
