In RL, I went with my Mum to the place in Ireland where our family originates in September this year and it was magical in very many ways. For a start, for Englishers, my Mum and I are both unusually sociable and friendly and we found that the people of this town were also that way. We went knowing little about exactly where our folks had lived (and died) but found the locals were falling over themselves to help us and also, that there might have been some ‘other force at work’ helping us along too.
We left, feeling sad to do so and with a connection that has given us both heart since. One instance that sticks in my mind is that I was driving and quite literally cut across another driver’s path in a car park. She braked to allow me to sort myself out and I rolled down my window to say sorry and thank her for her patience and she gave me a huge smile and said ‘Ah, yer grand!’. It’s hard to explain how much nicer this is than ‘No problem’ or ‘Watch where you’re going next time’ or something I’d most certainly have heard had I been at home.
It wasn’t just her either. If you said thank you or sorry to anybody, that’s how they’d reply. It’s just like saying ‘It’s okay’, but it’s soooo much happier. I’m trying to incorporate it into my own life (and less pretty accent) with a limited amount of success.

Here’s well lit, no shit for the outfit…
