Thank you to all who commented on my last post- and yes, I know the answer as well as you do, to follow my heart!
Of course that is exactly what I will do, in time. Though it's not possible to jump ship immediately, I have given myself 6 months breathing time, to get back into my own little facets of life -for I have not had bare time to myself since I came home- and become settled in my mind. In that time I shall also save my mother-loving behind off, because I have no savings right now (hello poverty line, I'm down here), and I need at least 3 grand in the bank to have my visa approved.
It calms me to think that I have concrete steps toward a goal now, rather than just a desire with no practical means to achieve it. I'm fond of telling people anything is possible, and it's true. If in 6 months I am still as heart sore for England, I shall have the where-with-all to set sail. The other part of the problem- the people I leave behind- will just have to be dealt with case by case. the family I shall simply placate with the fact that my brother is over there already and perhaps I should go look out for him for a while. That's what big sisters are for. :)
I think I should like very much to live in London. I'm not usually a city person, but there's something so familiar and well balanced about London- I only had 3 days there and it felt as if I'd always known it. Perhaps I have.
