So the packing is complete and I’ll be heading off to London tomorrow in preparation for the trip to Italy. This trip is going to be combined with a holiday (with my daughter) as the last three months have been quite exhausting.
I have been staying with a friend in Stirling whilst I make my final preparations and so tomorrow I say goodbye to my home city for the last 23 years (technically it was a town when I moved in, until 2000).
Kings Park and Stirling Castle assumed greater prominence in my life during lockdown as my daily walk took me on a circuit around the park and I saw the castle every day.
The next stage will be a flight to sunny Stansted to meet up with my daughter - looking forward to some much needed downtime - but will be keeping things going in the background.
