Well now I am beginning to wonder if I really am glad to be back. This is crap. Almost everything has hit me at once: the noise, the dirt, rude people, aggressive drivers, I haven't seen (or missed) TV for months and it is at least as full of inanity as ever; it embodies so many things that drive me mad..... I could go on. This morning the dog was on a lead for the first time since May, and she hated it. Me too. There are other things besides. Suddenly I feel closed in, and it is not like me. I hope this is all just a symptom of the return.
