I have been so incredibly irritated at things lately - particularly some things happening at work, which I refuse to delve into here. Suffice it to say that it's left me feeling down, and counting down the hours until I come home and back to my little safe place. That feeling I get when I'm on the bus and on the way home is what is keeping me together; knowing that in just a few minutes, I'll be home.


I'm still in two minds when it comes to home. For one, home is here. It's where J is; it's where Oscar is, it's where I can relax and switch off and just. stop. thinking. At the moment, that home is our rented little flat in a terrace building in West London, with its beautiful high ceilings and wooden floorboards. Prior to this, home was our apartment near Canary Wharf, with its ground floor (and somewhat pointless) balcony and bathroom that always smelled slightly of mould.

But then, in two weeks time, I am going home. Home, home! To the place where my friends are, where my family is, and where J and I will eventually head back to.

This next two weeks can't go by fast enough. I can't wait to go home.

Ugh, hope the work stuff resolves itself soon!

I know how you feel. I have my home here, and because I've been here so long, I have very close friends here as well, maybe even closer than in my hometown, but Munich is still home in ways that Heidelberg never can be.

I hate work problems :( and can't wait to have you back! :D

I can't wait to have you home. Home hasn't felt entirely like home since you left, and it probably won't feel entirely like home until you're permanently back.

I always feel like home is the place where my heart relaxes and I can just breathe and be happy...

I don't blame you for wanting to get back to Australia. Get out of the UK before it crumbles any more.

Sorry to hear that work stuff is irritating! It's hard to focus on here and now stuff with a trip like that on the horizon. Hope it's a great trip!
