Today we went on an adventure to Blackpool. I was feeling homesick and my family came up to visit. My brother had never seen the lights at Blackpool so we took him. It was so pretty with the lights all dancing and lighting up the streets. Though, I did get a bit of light envy as our student house has minimal lighting due to a lack of light bulbs. But that’s another story.
All that being said the Blackpool illuminations were magical, the lights all different colours were wonderful and I’d love to go again to see them properly.
It’s the best feeling, having spent the day with my family knowing that they are okay. Today was exactly what I needed. These small adventures are the perfect pick me up, seeing my family is everything I needed. Even though I’m hundreds of miles from home, I feel like I’m home. Home is wherever I’m with my family and right now, that’s here.
I can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings.
