Yesterday I joined the family holiday for the weekend and got a surprise when my sister and her fiance showed up at my door! We’re staying in a massive house at the sea front with a piano in it which I only found out about until I got here!! I also got a call this morning telling me that the music shop in Faversham had sold one of my ukuleles! So I am a very very happy Holly today. :)
I have such a craving to watch The First Days Of Spring but I need to sleep!!!
Tomorrow I am going very briefly back to Preston. I’m very excited because this will be the first time in almost 3 months since I left and 3 months since I’ve seen my parents. This week has been really horrible with the sheer intensity of homesickness that I have felt. I’m trying to hold onto as much positivity as I can.

I’m finding things hard. I’ve had a complete change of lifestyle and I’m not sure how I feel about it. I very much miss uni, especially the social aspect of it. I miss being able to ring someone when I feel lonely and they’d just come over. I miss being surrounded by the really amazing friends I have up north. I dislike the fact that on my days off, the only things I can do is work on my music, art or watch tv because I don’t know anyone around here who I could meet up with.
Still, there are good things. I am learning a lot and I already think I have become a better person. I’m gaining confidence everyday and I’m so proud of how I’ve jumped into this new place and done things like go to a completely new church on my own. I’m sticking my head into my Ukulele business and even got one of them in a music shop window!
I’m already 2 months into my placement. Only 11 more to go!
