Much like mummi g last week, this morning I woke up this morning feeling terribly homesick.
One definite culprit was the awesome snowy scenes plastered all over my Facebook feed this morning by my friends back home.
The other was the invitation to my big sisters 40th party. I know for a fact that unless we have a big win on the lotto in the next few weeks it’s going to be yet another milestone and family event that I’m not going to be part of.
Feeling a bit sorry for myself and not wanting to spend the day moping about hubby and I decided on a trip “up north”. We packed the swimmers and some lunch and jumped in the car and drove two hours to Noosa, one of the most beautiful parts of Southeast Queensland I’ve yet been to. The kids and their Dad swam in the sheltered calm waters of the bay and I sat relaxing in 32 degree heat on the beach. It was great to take a bit of time out to think and remember why I’ve gone through all this and moved away from my friends and family.
I still miss home like crazy and am hoping that these bouts of homesickness get less severe as time goes on. Having said that at least as I sit here writing this I feel about a hundred times better than I did this morning. (thank goodness!)
Of the pictures below one was taken by my best friend in England a couple of days ago and one by me today.
Snow versus sand – the jury is still out!!
For those in the snow, have fun building your snowmen!!
