Well okay I do but just for the weekend…..
I seem to have gotten over my guilt about going away for the weekend – ALONE! And am now just extremely excited. Did I mention I am going ALONE? All by myself? Well, my mom, brother, sister, their respective partners, sister-in-law and a whole bunch of other friends are also going but we are not going together.
It is the Knysna Oyster Festival and although I am not running I know quite a few people who are – and they are welcome to it. I have totally gotten over my disappointment at not being able to run and have decided to hit the art galleries, the quaint shops, the markets, the coffee shops and the oysters! All by myself! Did I mention I am going ALONE! To do all the stuff that I love to do, without any time constraints. Or quite possibly to do none of it. It is actually really sad how excited I am that I can spend time on my own. Just me, myself and I cruising around at my own pace, possibly taking a few photos, possibly sitting down and sketching, possibly spending an entire day in a coffee shop. Possibly not even leaving the guest house. Who knows…..
I think I have previously mentioned that I traveled around the world, sometimes with company but most of the time on my own. I have no problem being on my own but it has been a while. So to that end, no I am not sharing a lift. I want my own car, to do things at my own pace. But at least I know that if I get bored (or horrified) at my own company I will have loads of friends and family very close. I just hope that they don’t get offended if I decide that I don’t want to see too much of them.
I have also organised 3G for my tablet so will be able to Skype Little OL.
