to The Old Swan Hotel, Harrogate.
Usually when the festival comes round, I’m as excited as an apple fanboi who’s just been given free reign and an unlimited budget in an apple store, this year not so much due to recent events.
That said, it will prove a great distraction for the next few days, and I will be exactly where I need to be right now, which is amongst my friends.
I think coming home will be the hardest part and I am likely to fall harder and faster than same said apple fanboi, getting his credit line cut five minutes into his first shop. I’m not sure how I am going to cope getting back to an empty flat, with no yowly little bugger to perk me back up again..
