It’s a strange feeling right now. I have the other half asleep in my lap, while our friends are trying to be quiet outside. (It really isn’t working! 😅) We aren’t home, in our flat or have the boys with us but it feels so comforting being surronded by friends. Even though some are settling down for the night (an early start in the morning) and others are recovering from a heavy night.
It feels nice. While not home, the feeling of that being in the right place takes hold. Could be cause the other half is snoring away!! Could be the fact I have my sewing and drawing book with me, or it may have something to do with being round people we haven’t seen in awhile. The people we are visiting are Ross’s friends but they always make me feel welcome in their group. We wanted to see everyone before the festive period got into full swing.
The feeling of being north though. That is surreal. It’s only been 5-6 months and things are slowly changing. The feeling of driving up that old road that we ain’t seen for a while or actually seeing people in the flesh and not over some computer screen. It tugs a little at the heart strings.
But we both want to continue on this crazy journey that we are on. Even though we feel lonely and are missing out on things. We are heading back home in a couple of days but the north will always be our home. Our real home.
