30 Day Writing Challenge - Day Sixteen

"Something that you miss."

I miss my family! So damn much! I don't mean Jordan, Vala and Flynn because I live with them and see them every day. I'm talking my parents and siblings, grandparents and cousins, aunts and my nephew. I miss the family I left back home in Australia; most of whom I've not seen in over six years. I have three second cousins that I have never met as well as a 21 month old nephew. 

Not only do I miss my family but I also miss my home. The home I grew up in. The home that holds a lot of my most fondest memories. I miss the street I grew up on and the town I lived in. I miss the local shopping centres and cafe's and restaurants. I miss the creek and open fields where I used to ride bikes and walk the family dogs. I miss the family dogs (one of whom died on my birthday a few years ago). I miss the CBD that was a 15 minute drive away. I miss the big city of Melbourne. I miss the beaches near my home and I miss the hustle and bustle of the place. I miss the friends I left behind. I even miss certain foods that I can't get over here in the UK. 

I miss so much about my home in Australia and I know I will never ever stop missing it. I hope one day to return for a holiday but that is still a painfully long way off yet.

Until next time,
