    Going home...

    At long last. After 10 days solid in London bouncing from the Learning Without Frontiers conf, straight into BETT and then filming our webcast yesterday it is with great relief that I can now go home to my family, my bed and to shampoo that does not turn my scalp to a flakey mess!
    So to everyone who has helped my stay down here (and kept me sane) I thank you.
    Now to go back home to a place with a horizon, fresh air, peace and quiet and my family who I've been missing so much.
    Just 2 hours until my train now

    Hmmm, normally 2 things that don't go together... peace and quiet and family! It's rarely quiet when i get together with my parents/sister, and it's never quiet with just me, the wife and 2 cats in my house! Peace is something I gave up on as soon as i started working in education

    Thanks Mike. I've always preferred Going Home, the Local Hero theme:

    YouTube - Dire Straits - Going Home - [Alchemy Tour 83]

    I know it's audio only, but for those who have never heard it close your eyes and enjoy.

    Both responses are indeed classics - but never underestimate the power of a City and Colour track
