It feels good to be back again. However it was fabulous to take a break from writing, whilst having a mind refreshing trip to old Bean Town. I really enjoyed Boston on many levels. It was good to walk about such a clean city. I went without doing any prior research, although two friends both insisted that I go and get some cannoli in Little Italy, other than that, it was get the bags dropped off, step out the hotel door, and just see what happens. I decided to take one of the trolley tours. Something that I usually avoid doing with a passion. But I have to say, I do recommend it for getting the feel of the city, but since there are so many one way streets quite often you end up backtracking to get from point A to B.
Boston surprised me in a good way. I didn’t want to rush or try to see it all. I was going to really relax and see whatever I could and not worry about the rest.
Back at home the builders are in. It’s been endless rounds of tea, biscuits, and conversations, I have been delegated to the kitchen table to write, as my desk is hidden somewhere under plaster dust and dust sheets. My desk chair too will need a solid cleaning to get all the dust bits out of the cracks so it will look new again. But…the work will be worth it. The old Victorian has had a face lift into the 21st century. I was really scared at first, terrified actually, that it would be a butchered job, but we’ve managed to blend the old with the new.
So I look forward to catching up on the blogs that I read, and settling back into my blog with all my readers. I missed you!
Cheers Boston! I loved being there in old Bean Town.
Since I’ve been back, there has been an earthquake in Canada and now the East Coast is due for a horrendous storm. To those of you out in the storm’s path, stay safe. Here’s hoping the storm will pass with little damage.
