Moments

There are moments when I want to jump on a plane and spend more time with my loved ones.

There is too much adjustment now: to the weather, to working, to the new environment, living on my own, to my housemates, to that void that only S.O can fill and constantly missing all my dear friends.

Then there are moments I just want to stay under my duvet and not go to work so I absorb this experience. I can tell myself yes you are here and yes things have changed. There is just so much happening, everywhere and all around.

But there are those moments that I am glad I am doing this London experience, right here and right now.

There is always home.

Yes, there are these moments that define the now and 'redefines' the future .... moments in time that define the who ... but with these moments, you are right "There is always home" ..... Have a blast 'PoH'

I've been thinking about the working holiday thing for some time now...I'd like to try sometime, but have no freaking idea where to start planning :P

hints, tips, contact details would be welcome I think :)

Hope you enjoy! Other parts of the world only make us appreciate what we have/had so much more I think.

hey there dear,

slutty dropping by with some pearly thoughts...

Home will always be there indeed, and this experience is definitely to be had, but it has made me realise something so significant.

Home is not a physical place at all, it is a feeling that lives in us and that is created by the people in our lives.

It is a metaphoric existance that we give life to by the familiarity of people and the comfort zone we accept.

By this definition, you will be feel almost at home soon... when skanky and I visit and we all have a great vuvulicious get together...

Baci

Ciao
