This blog entry is a ring-in. It does not bear the Walters stamp. It has come from one of the many dedicated followers of the blog of a family who couldn’t remember whether they left the iron on when they hit the road for
133 days. The cost of electricity has risen by 200% in that period and Martin and Nikki will be buying drip-dry for the rest of their lives.
Many years ago our car was stolen from in front of the house. If you have been the victim of theft you will identify with our repeated action. We kept going outside to the empty space just to see if we had somehow made a mistake, or if by some illogical reason the car had been returned. The analogy? I have this well-worn bookmark on my laptop which, out of habit I will keep visiting until finally it sinks in that the epic journey is over and the Walters have returned to suburbia once more. Reading Nikki’s blog has been a highlight of my day, and now it is come to an end.
Yep! It was marvellous to be allowed to share this journey of discovery.
Informative, sensitive, funny, insightful - I just want to thank Nikki and Martin for sticking with the task of keeping the diary so alive and for being vulnerable and real in sharing it with us all. I figure that I am not alone, so on behalf of those of us who have followed, thanks a million. And, we don’t need an Osborne or Kardashian sequel.
Good to see you home safe and well. G
