We had a lie in this morning, got up at 8.30! Leftover pizza in bed for breakfast…
My bag is too heavy so I posted some stuff I wasn’t using to my friends sister in California, at least then it’s still in America and I can get it back if I want it. I went to the supermarket to resupply food, I was feeling a bit miserable walking around as I didn’t want any of the food on offer. Even all the stuff that should be the same as in England tastes different. Skittles, Twix, M&Ms all taste weird.
When I was wondering around my stomach started to feel dodgy – I think I ate too much food too quickly.
I went back to the cabin and spoke to mum and I cried! No idea why. I just felt emotional.
“I thought you were having a good time?”
“I’m having a lovely tiiiiiiiiiiime!”
“I thought you had met some nice people?”
“Then why are you crying?”
“I have no ideeeeeeeeea”
I felt bad for worrying mum but I was fine. Just tired and emotional. Had planned to call dad but I would just cry again (sorry dad I didn’t call you). I had loads of nice messages from home and nice messages about my blog. So of course I cried some more.
Roxanne and I hung out at Rowans place for the afternoon while he soaked his feet in the bin.
On the way back I heard another shout across the street – “Alex!” It was James (Limey) who I met in Scotland. So cool! I though he was so far ahead I wouldn’t see him but he was on his way back to kick off. I feel so popular in this town! You start to recognise people by their puffy coats, mine is pretty distinctive – no one else has a coat quite as puffy and no one has heard of berghaus of course!
We have that Sunday evening feeling like we are going to work the next day!
I read that towns can really suck you in – that’s so true, especially beautiful little towns like Idyllwild. How tempting it was to stay another day!
But no, we have a big climb tomorrow…
