I feel like everyone is leaving or off somewhere – actually it is not a feeling it is a reality, although maybe not everyone.
Last night we went to a farewell party for a friend that is moving back to Cape Town. He has been in PE for just over 3 years but is now retuning “home”. I understand why, his family is there, PE is not the easiest place to be single in your early 30’s and well, let’s face it, if you get offered a fantastic job in Cape Town you are not exactly going to turn it down.
Then Mr OL is going overseas for 8 weeks shortly. I am not expecting it this to be easy and it is going to put a serious dampener on my early morning training session but at least it is temporary.
More upsetting is the fact that my sister has decided to move to Australia for a while. She has a one year working holiday visa and leaves next week. I am going to find this very hard! She is my best friend as well as my sister, but I know it is not impossible. She and I have left and returned more times than most and I know we will still be in touch via email, BBM, Facebook, Skype and sms but it is not the same. I want to throw a hissy fit and kick and scream and tell her not to go, but I can’t. Not just because that would not be fair to her, but because I think going it is the best thing she could do right now. And it is Sydney!!!!!! I love Sydney, I love Australia! I am very worried that she won’t come back though – if that happens then I might just throw a hissy fit!
