Exploring My Dreams...

Plucking my eyebrows with a broken mirror, (not smashed or cracked I should add, just an illuminated mirror whose lights don't work!) and staring at my hair wrapped up in a towel, I should of been happy for the night ahead, but in all honesty, I wasn't, I was and still am, getting fed up of dolling myself up for a night at the local pub, listening to songs off the jukebox and the older generation cackling.

I'd love to be dolled up for a night at a lovely restaurant, or even to watch a show at the theatre, but what I'd love most right now, is to get dolled up for a holiday abroad. I've not been abroad since I was 11, and although I know I have my honeymoon to look forward too, we've not even got our wedding date planned yet, so how long away is that going to be?

I wouldn't want to visit a party scene, instead, I'd love to visit somewhere family orientated, with beautiful scenery, delicious food and perfect tourist attractions. I'd like a place where I could relax at the hotel or apartment poolside, and top up with a tan with a cocktail in my hand. I'd love to go for evening walks after dinner, and splash my feet in the sea.

How I'd love to be getting dolled up for a holiday abroad, I can imagine Gareth and Spud playing golf in Dubai, me at a local spa getting a beautiful massage, and us all taking a slow walk to a lovely little family run restaurant. After dinner we'd pop by to the sea, and chase each other, before leaving, we'd write our names in the beautiful pure sand.

Don't get me wrong, I'm fond of my home town, I wouldn't go to great lengths of saying I love it, but I'm fond of it. I was born here, as was Spud, and we've both grown up here! We know the town well, and our family, apart from my mum, step dad and little sister all live locally. My mum made the wise choice and moved away to Cornwall three years ago, now living by the sea with beautiful British scenery.

Here in Reading though, we've got no sand or sea and we hardly ever get to see the sun! We've got one, maybe two beautiful sights to see, but the more I think about it, I wonder if they're beautiful at all!? We're fast becoming a city, we're way too big to still be a town, and slowly, but surely, I'm losing any love I had for this place, the places surrounding it and the places within it, even the pubs, which I once loved to visit once a month! 

Maybe it's not time for me to look for just a holiday, but maybe a home move too!? Who knows!

Until next time,
