Past acquaintances

In the first proper night out I’ve had in Northampton since I moved back, it was weird seeing so many old acquaintances that I haven’t seen in a long time, without actually trying! I sometimes forget that I spent most of my life here, and that no matter what some of that is going to filter back into my life…

For the first time in a long time, the thought of being back in Northampton permanently rather than temporarily doesn’t scare me so much, although I’m not sure whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing. Maybe I’m just tired of running away from my past, and have realised after all this time that I wasn’t really running at all, merely trying something new. Now that I’ve lived in London though, the only places to go now exist abroad, but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it!
