Honestly I tried so hard to pose for a proper insta shot and inevitably my favourite is this weird picture of me mid-giggle doing who knows what with my hand (about to bite my nails? Swatting a wasp? Could be anything really...) In other news, Berlin was dreamy.
After two and a half years of the wild adventure of boat life, it's the last night of floating over the canal before becoming normal land people again. And just like the first night, there's fairy lights, wine, Gilmore Girls and a whole lot of boxes, stress and exciting anticipation. It's been a mad ride and I have much wisdom to impart so here goes: you do not need a fridge as big as you think; the wrapped firelighters are infinitely better than the crumbly ones and definitely worth the extra pound; do not walk too near to the edge of the water when drunk; Gilmore Girls fixes everything (including broken boilers, lack of electricity, frozen pipes, squirrel attacks, residues of debaucherous parties and toilets that refuse to flush) ; taking crazy chances and doing things lightyears out of your comfort zone can pay off more than you could ever imagine.
You're welcome. Wish me luck.
In incredible proof that we can achieve anything we put out minds to, yesterday I attended the graduation of my 77-year-old grandmother, who left school at 13 and worked her whole life to make sure that my mum would have all the opportunities she was never given. She got a degree despite an accident that left her barely able to move for months, having no prior academic experience and many many tech setbacks. She is a truly inspirational woman, who taught me the value of a good argument, the importance of being on the right side of history, and the how to never stop fighting for equality. Or for your dreams.
