The New Year’s weekend at Isle of Wight was really nice. The cottage was absolutely beautiful, and absolutely huge! We didn’t get to explore the island much, since the weather was absolutely dreadful. Think gale winds and heavy rain. Oh, there was even a brief thunderstorm.
Let me tell you, I did not enjoy the ferry to get there or back with those waves! Going back home was the worst, because we were sitting so that I could look outside, meaning that I not only felt the waves, I could see exactly how much we were listing. (Actually, can you use that word like that? Tilted?)
The days in the cottage were great though. We watched a couple of movies, ate a lot of food, drank a lot, played board games. Typical weekend away with your friends I guess. And I can now proudly say that I have played Exploding Kittens (very fun – and seems to be more fun the meaner you are to the other players!).
At around the 50 hour mark of being with other people non-stop, I was having a bit of a difficult time though. I can never quite pinpoint why or what is wrong, it’s just that feeling of everything being too much right at that moment, and I feel tired and like I want to cry. Which is a very odd feeling. I snuck out for a bit and sat alone in our bedroom for a little bit, which helped some.
On the whole, it was a good weekend though, and I’m glad we did it. I’m horrible at taking photos though, so eh, here’s one of the two I took the whole weekend.
