On Missing Home

Month five is fast approaching and it's starting to really settle in that we are 9000 miles away from home, just the two of us. To be honest we are starting to miss home just a little bit.
We miss our local pub, our takeaway, our big cosy bed, all our DVD's, proper chocolate, our dogs, our families and our friends.
We knew that moving to the other side of the world would be hard and sometimes it really is. We don't have an amazing relationship with our housemates, the temperatures dropped and working 40 hour weeks kind of takes the fun out of living in Australia.
Despite the odd bouts of homesickness the positives do outweigh the negatives.
I've held a koala, fed a kangaroo, seen quokkas (that are only native to WA), seen some amazing sunsets and views aswell as all the other stuff we have coming up - Shark dives, sand boarding, seeing Uluru, road trips and a whole lot more.
All the experiences we have had and are going to have make the homesickness worth it but Yorkshire is always going to be home.



  1. I have to admit as a Yorkshire lass myself who is now in Michigan USA, while I don't find or call Yorkshire home anymore, I do miss that North Sea and the fish n chips that's for sure!
