This missing stuff is a double-sided coin. It’s hit me, now that I’m here in Canada, that there are certainly things I miss about Australia. Of course, Chris is at the very top of that list. I can’t wait to be back in your arms honey. But, I also miss the weather and being able to walk outside without a coat and boots. I miss the sound of the kookaburras, cockatoos and magpies. I miss our lovely house and working from home. I miss anxiously waiting for Chris to come home from work. I miss our comfy bed and going for walks hand and hand along the beach. I miss chocolate covered strawberry licorice, beetroot dip and reasonably priced wine. I miss exploring new places. I miss doing things as a couple.
But I’m here in Canada now and doing my best to cram as much into my visit as possible so that it will last me when I return home. I’m getting a hit of all those things I’ve missed over the past three months and am grateful to have the opportunity to be able to do so.
Now I’ve got two places to call home and I’ll probably always be balancing the hits and misses.
