Itchy Feet...

For as LONG as I can remember I haven't stuck in one place for all that long...this stems from my parents moving me around a lot as a child...I was born in Aberdeen, moved down to Lowestoft (Suffolk) when I was quite small, then Filby (Norfolk), then Lyne of Skene (13miles outside of Aberdeen) when I was 6, Ash (Surrey) when I was 12, Lowestoft again when I was 18, Stoke on Trent when I was 24/25, Crewe when I was 25/26 & back to Lowestoft again when I was 26...in fact I did a whole lot of bouncing around for just over a year of my life...as much as moving sucks it's quite exciting investigating somewhere new :0) this does mean a lot of my friends are in random places in the country but hey that's just fine :0)

So I think the absolute longest I've stuck anywhere was 6years! I knew coming back to Lowestoft after Stoke/Crewe I was coming back to somewhere where I had exhausted all my possibilities! I studied & got my degree here, I left & went on the cruise ship (admittedly that failed) I then worked myself to a position where I could apply for a managerial role in Stoke & moved once more...that was a huge failure too along with both my relationships up there :0/ so I was forced to come back to the one place I felt I had no possibilities left in...I am a BOOMERANG, I always come back to my "roots"...

Now I'm doing a decent-ish job in Norwich ~ but I can't help craving more! Someone said to me that I'm "bound" to Lowestoft & I do feel that way sometimes but I'm DETERMINED to prove I'm not!!! My friends & family are here yes but that's not the be all & end all of life is it?! I feel Lowestoft has it's poisonous claws in me & won't let go! 

Right now I'm sat in my little sun trap, it's the one place you'll find me if you can't find me anywhere else :0/ I crave the sunshine, I crave to be on the go & I crave to be anywhere else but here right now...I'm sitting staring at the clouds wishing I could be that free! 

I don't want to be tied to anywhere, I want to be completely free of responsibility for ANYTHING! I want to bounce from place to place, making friends & experiencing life! Yep...that's what I truly want...but things like a full time job & a new car get in my way! They are the ONLY two things stopping me...I genuinely can't wait to be out of my knee brace/off my crutches cos then I'll be on the go ALL THE TIME! I'm not missing out anymore...

That's a PROMISE I've made to myself...I don't break promises!!!
