You can look back at my entry for 24 June 2016 and see how devastated I felt after the result. For two years, I despaired of my country's future and the corrupt, incompetent government that was selling us out for money/political power. Well, after marching on 23 June 2018, I began to feel some hope again. I realised that I wasn't alone, there were many people who felt the same way. And after yesterday, I know that number has only grown. It is such an inspiring, heartening experience to march with people who ALL feel the same way you do and who want to do something rather than just moan/complain. We're a total mess, a global laughing stock, and most MPs are too scared to point this out. We will keep pushing for a vote on the final Brexit deal with an option to remain.
I went to see Giffords Circus with my sister. She has been wanting to see this for years (since before Madeleine was born) but her husband never bought her tickets so I asked for them as my birthday present. It was nice for it to be just the two of us and the circus is really charming. They have no exotic animals, just ponies and dogs, and a lot of acrobatics and gymnastic work, with a live orchestra.
I then took my first holiday of the year. I went back to Canterbury for a few days to reacquaint myself with my favourite city and meet up with jo_blogs for lunch and fandom discussion. Spent too much money in Kent but it was the only real holiday I'm having this year so I don't regret it that much. Canterbury hasn't changed all that much, except the shop where I bought my first tarot deck is now closed and empty, which was rather sad. Next time, I want to visit the cathedral again and do some more exploring of Sturry, which I never really saw while I was studying.
I will be posting more about my job in the next entry.
