Worn down!

I have LOVED seeing my family and close friends, whom I miss so much and sadly never get to see anymore.

But trying to squeeze in a life worth's of wonderful people in two weeks is truly exhausting.

n.b. This isn't a complaint, and I wouldn't change seeing any of these people for the world.

But I hadn't really counted on how draining it is to be out day and night for two weeks straight - with food, drinks, zipping in and around town - I feel like I'm ninety years old today and have totally hit a wall.

I'm achey, fatigued, nauseous and just want to hide in little Otto's house!

And boy do I miss my puppy and boyfriend (little man and big man). They mean so much to me and I can't wait to see them on Friday night.

But of course, I don't want to leave either, and I'm dreading my departure for Sydney airport.

Better take tissues.

Wow, what an emotional two weeks.


  1. oh, I know that feeling so well.

    Am a displaced Australian in Seattle and though I've been here for over two and a half years now, my latest trip home to see my new niece was a whirlwind of friends, family and good coffee, but was shadowed with a hint of the bittersweet. There were many tears on the plane on the way home.

    When I was there I missed my husband in Seattle, but now I'm back, I miss my family and friends. Half here, half there.... its a constant pull both ways.

    I find myself listening to The Waifs "I'm in London Still".... sums the feeling up perfectly.


  2. Hi Lorna,

    Thanks so much for your comment! It's always helpful to know there are others in the same boat, it's difficult isn't it, trying to find the balance... I hope you are enjoying Seattle.

    I haven't heard that song but I'll look it up! :)


Thank you for your comment! X
