A change of view

As you may have noted in my last post I was due to catch a plane last Monday, which I managed to reach on time; the weather in Poland remained subdued and I was more worried about the snow at my destination. Thankfully the snow in Manchester had pretty much disappeared on my arrival and although the air steward said I might have trouble crossing the border to Gods own County, the trip with my nephew was safe and without incident; arriving around midnight to a warm wood fuelled living room and a glass of red wine; fantastic !

Now I know I might have pushed up my carbon footprint for the year, but when I saw a return flight for Β£62 I just had to take it; I’ll offset the damage done with my composting toilet in the summer πŸ™‚

It’s just about a year since I was last here visiting my sisters and nephews and it’s great to be back, there is also a good chance of finding a little bit of work to fund my visit and maybe even put a little bit a side; with the added bonus of the glorious Yorkshire countryside. Unfortunately the baggage restrictions have left me without my camera, but I managed to get a quick snap of my new backyard on Wednesday morning with my sisters happy snapper before the battery went flat. I plan to take more once I get out and about a bit more.

Oddly enough it feels colder here than in Poland, I’m guessing because of the damp in the air; where Poland is a very dry cold, does that make sense? I checked in with friends back in Poland and they said they had a meter of snow on Thursday, so maybe I’m better off here.

As I said it’s great to be back seeing family, but with all the catching up I have suddenly found myself not having the time to blog as often, I’m sure that will change soon; I can feel the urge πŸ™‚

  1. Back in the saddle of home, and I can feel the change in you already. It must be a novelty, being able to use the toilet, without shovelling some dirt down afterwards! Keep up the reports mate, the differences make good reading.

  2. Yes, it feels much colder here than in eastern Europe even though the temperature is much higher. I find the same with the heat; I can (just) cope with 40degC in Romania but I couldn’t here. Like you I assume it’s the humidity. Good to hear you can feel the urge – look forward to reading the result.
