Here I am – all rugged up in Leicester. Arrived in England last week to glorious sunshine but freezing temperatures. Had to race out to buy winter coat, gloves, socks and a vest! I Love being back in England, despite 31 years in Australia, a piece of my heart is always here. It’s the small things that make it special – going out on a frosty morning to buy the Guardian, munching my way through a real Melton Mowbray pie, long walks, Marks and Spencer’s underwear, furry boots, thick chunks of ham off the bone in Leicester Market, the pips before the news, the shipping forecast, and waking up to BBC Radio 4 in the early morning. Off to London tomorrow to raid the bookshops in Bloomsbury.
