I've been in Boston for another week and a half, and I've got most of another week to go. I'm homesick and miss my partner. Too many weeks in this hotel in the past year, too many weeks not at home.
It's been a difficult couple of weeks, working too much overtime and worrying about things. I'm working today, on a Sunday, and went into the office only to find that my access card doesn't work on the weekend. So I'm trying to work from the hotel, where the connection is slower and the VPN keeps on dropping out.
I did get out of the hotel yesterday and went to Cambridge - I found out that there is a bus which goes directly from downtown Waltham to Cabridge and runs 3 or 4 times an hour. If only I'd known that a year ago. Not that I mind the commuter train, but services aren't exactly frequent.
I went to Urban Outfitters, which I love but can never buy anything I want to because I can't justify taking cushions and homewares home, and went to Woolcott and Company, which I am very fond of, but I didn't find anything I wanted. Well, I did, but again nothing I could actually justify buying.
I love Malabrigo, I really do, but I don't like most of the colours that seem to be available in stores at the moment. They had a sample of the chunky version in the most beautiful green... but of course they didn't have any left!
I did manage to find the most beautiful cherries in Whole Foods. Cherries are my favourite food, surpassing even chocolate. So I bought lots of them. Maybe they will make me feel better.
I haven't managed to get any knitting done at all since last weekend... maybe I can get Clapotis onto the plane home and knit if I can't sleep.
