Feeling blue...

I think I'm really feeling the pangs of homesickness (for real) for maybe the first time since I've been away. I've had little spouts of it over the past year but recently it's been quite unrelenting.

I actually think it's a combination of things. Number one: being away from family and friends, of course. Even though I have some great people in my life right now it still doesn't make up for the fact that I miss the family and friends I have back home. Those are the people I don't feel like I have to be on my best behaviour with all the time, the people I can just be me with, farts, burps and all. 

Number two: the weather. I'm pretty sure the continual cloudy, rainy weather could get even the happiest person down. Over the last couple of days it has been what I like to call Summerish though. I've been able to get a much needed fix of vitamin D and have even managed to regain my 'farmers crack'.

Number three: I'm missing hugs. Yes, hugs. I suppose this comes under the family and friends category as well, but I really miss having someone to wrap my arms around and squeeze. I could hug a tree I suppose but it's just not the same.

Number four: I miss my dog... full stop.

So, here's hoping to more sunshine in the future. I will snap out of it soon - it really sucks to be sad when I'm in such a beautiful place.
