London again. It's a bit like coming home really, it's certainly the closest thing we've had to a home in 2 months anyway. Only the whole place has changed. Just a week earlier we'd left London for our Scottish and Irish experience and it was still very much a city in early spring. We arrive back on the 7th of May to find summer has definitely arrived while we were away, galavanting around the highlands and watching atlantic sunsets. We have some work to do, funnily enough, and this makes it seem even more homely.
