You can't miss something you've never experienced. Be thankful to have experienced that thing you're missing.
As we go through our last four months here is South Australia, we are savouring those things that we are going to miss. There is a bittersweet feeling to moving back to the UK. It's home, but Australia has been our home for the last eight years.
Of course, there are people I'll miss, but we can keep in touch, just as we have done with our friends in the UK.
I'll miss the big sky and the quality of light and the space.
I'll miss being able to put the washing out in the summer and bring it in, bone dry, fifteen minutes later.
I'll miss the beaches and the birds and the wonderful animals.
But I must also be glad to have experienced them in order to miss them.
