When I first decided that I was going to move to Canada a part of me wondered if I was going to be able to make it for longer then a few months before I caved and for one reason or another would go back to Australia.
Although living abroad has not been without its moments of me wanting to go home, for the most part I have found it easier then I thought I would, which I accredit mostly to the fact that I moved here with some of the most wonderful people I know- My beautiful twin sister Emmily, the cynical but hilarious Neil and of course one of my oldest amigos, the lovely Sinead who I now live in Toronto with.
Even though in large parts we were all so different, something about us as a group just worked so nicely and it made being away from home all the more easier. Not to say things in our household were always smooth sailing, looking back though some of the things we would argue about were so ridiculous that it makes it even funnier when I think back to it now.
I'm usually dripping with pangs of nostagia in some form most of the time when I have too much time to ponder, but damn do I miss those days sometimes... Oh and for the record we never called ourselves the awesome foursome and I imagine that they are all going to cringe when they read that title- especially Neil (-:
