I feel a strange sense of De Ja Vu as I sit writing this. Although this time I’m not flying in first class (you win some, you loose some!) It’s almost been a year since I said my goodbyes for the first time and left for the beginning of this whole mad adventure.
I blinked and August literally vanished.
The last week has been filled with the Dentist (AGH) Celebrations, and Farewells! The latter, never gets easier.
Oh, but yesterday I did have a trip to a wonderful spot near Victoria, which if you’re ever in London, you should check out.
Leaving London is always such a bittersweet feeling. I cannot deny I love my job, even though it has cursed me with a awful bought of laryngitis! And I have people that have made such an impact on my life, I know wherever our paths lead, we will always be friends. But I know New York is home, I know my heart has a strange full feeling when I am there. Combatting being excited for one, and pining not to leave loved ones is tricky.
Alas, I’m on the plane and always know they are only a 6 hour journey away.
This post doesn’t really have many exciting stories in it, but is just a way for me to say how AMAZING my friends and family are.
To my main HONS in London … I miss you already. I could sit here and write why you’re so great, but I’d probably start the ugly crying, and I’m not sure the people sat next to me would be able to cope. So instead here’s just some pictures of my favourite people, and times I’ve shared with you this summer.
A picture says a thousand words, and I know if you’re reading this, that’s all you’ll need to know the memory and magic behind each one.
One shout out I’ll never stop making is to my mum. Saying goodbye and seeing you cry at the departures gate breaks my heart, and is making me shed a tear now. It’s silly really, I know you’re always there, but I will miss your wonderful cuddles on a slightly more regular basis. Keep being the fabulous, talented, strong, funny, beautiful lady you are; I love you so much. On that note, I will not continue to be soppy! You know how much you mean to me x
So there we have it London, thank you for being yourself; grimy, gritty and real.
I can’t wait to see what Manhattan has in store for me over the next year…
Don’t forget, Dream Big. However out of reach it seems, anything is possible. I still can’t believe I get to call New York, home.
