Brief visit back in England

This weekend I arose at an un-earthly hour, jumped onto the Metro to commute across the city, and boarded an early morning plane to England. The reason behind this voyage was that it was one of my best friend’s 21st Birthday Masquerade Ball! So before heading down to the Midlands to join my friends, I was able to have lunch at home in Liverpool, see my cat and family, and then hop onto another train. Phew. I feel tired just thinking about it! We had all donned on our best dresses and suites, and danced the night away!

After a day of catching up and walking down memory lane we headed into Liverpool to dance (or at least attempt on my part) the night away. I had ana amazing time, and it was wonderful to catch up with all my friends from home. Having moved away from where I grew up three years ago, I really do miss my friends. This year has had its ups and downs for me, …
