“Kisses are a better fate than wisdom.”
— ee cummings
i am on holiday again.
withnail and i
okay, it’s not like this. but i can’t help it, i love that film, and i LOVE that clip.
and i am in the country, so.. it’s a little bit relevant. is withnail and i everybody’s favourite film, or just mine? i’m kind of obsessed with it.
kisses. i am liking my holiday and my friends, but, people! TEN AND POPPET ARE NOT HERE! so no kisses. i miss the kisses.
where i am is lovely. it’s a holiday home owned by my friend lottie’s brother. i’ve been up here lots of times, and it’s always amazing. i love north norfolk soooooo much. we went to the big fancy beach the first day, but the past three days we’ve gone to a little local beach called west runton. lottie’s sister is here and she has a little boy who isn’t two yet, so we go in the morning and stay until it is getting too hot for a baby, and incidentally, this is perfect for me. i have been very well here. today i swam in the sea. it was brilliant.
lottie dropped me back at the house afterwards because i was so knackered, and i had a shower and a lie down, and now i am listening to the mental illness happy hour and writing to you, my penpals. possibly part of my wellness has been to do with reduced screen time. for a long time i wouldn’t read books because of eye pain, but i’ve been reading a little gem by douglas coupland called the gum theif. it was great and i absolutely ripped through it. my friend grace gave me it when i was in brighton, i’d never read anything by him before. being a completist, i will now be reading EVERYTHING by him.
another thing i want to do is go back over the norfolk writers.
you know i’d move here if i could work out how. i think if i walked on sand every day i’d get so well. plus, you sleep like the dead here.
