Monday, November 27
At 4pm yesterday afternoon I was sitting on the beach with the warmth of the sun on my face, friends around me and the sound of waves hitting the surf. Six hours later I find myself eating sushi in the kitchen at my parents house in England. Yes, I am back in England and will be staying for 2 or 3 months.
Last night, I carried my bags up to my room and found a giftwrapped package on the bed with most of the wrapping covered by stamps. "Ooh, goody, a present!" I thought as I launched myself at it. I unwrapped it to find a Swedish newspaper. So, I scrabbled at the newspaper with my fingers and inside I found this...Annika, lovely Annika who I have never even met or spoken to, has sent me a sketch of Positano with a guardian angel, who will watch over me. Thank you so much Annika, I have hung it over my bed, where an empty picture hook was mysteriously waiting. What a lovely thing to do, a picture will last so much longer than flowers, and will remind me that my mum is up there watching over me. Annika worried that I would think it strange that she sent me such a gift, but I think it just goes to show what a kind-hearted, thoughtful person she is.
