I miss Southampton Common. There's so many good trees and birds and all that noise. Goddamn love nature it gets me so amped.
It's not my home-home, but Southampton is the first place Charlotte and I lived together, and it's our home town. I haven't been back here properly for years, and lots has changed.
Thankfully, Sanjha is still open. Their onion bhajis remain the best I've ever had, and I've still never even seen paneer pakoras anywhere else.
There's a new cinema, which has a nice moiré about it as you scroll.
And some stuff for the kid to jump on.
It's quite nice to be back, if only for a night and a day. It certainly has all the strange familiarity of visiting your home town. As much as things change, they stay the same.
Go on, just leave. See if I care. I'll be fine on my own.
Looks like it could use it.
