The smell of grass just before a big thunderstorm, its 30 degrees and I'm sitting on the varandah with Mum, Adam and a collection of Dunns
My doggie. I think I started missing her before anything else! Pathetic really!
The ability to make a cup of tea whenever I want
My own bedroom. My own space to chill and where everything is MINE, not shared or open to others....MINE!
A decent hot shower (although ours is not exactly strong, its hot!)
An icy cold Carlton Draught - nowhere but Australia has beer so cold its almost frozen
Champagne - its impossible to get sparkling wine for under $10 anywhere else in the world!
The ability to run when I want and feel safe.
My Mum. I miss her like a limb and I can't wait to give her a massive hug at the airport!
My bro. I miss his silly noises and ability to make me laugh with the most obscure jokes that only a few people seem to get.
People who know me. I'm sick of pretending to like people in order to socialise, I want my own peeps, the friends I've been with for years who I don't have to small talk with, can swear, belch and get ridiculously pissed in front of without them caring.
Family dinners. I miss getting sloshed with the family and eating as much as I possibly can in one sitting. Oz Shnozz - best game in the world!
Soccer. I miss training on Wednesday nights, miss having a kick with my mates down at Roxbourough Park, miss putting on my shin pads for a game.
The RSL - the social meeting place where you're guarenteed to run into people you know.
My clothes. They'll all feel new again by the time I get home.
Heat. I've been to some hot places but none with that excellent close humidity and 35 degrees. I miss going to bed in a wet sarong because its so stinking hot!
My car. I haven't driven in 10 months. I hope I can still drive!!!
Movie nights with Jem. We have an ability to get wasted whilst watching copious amounts of Will Ferrel movies and turning up very hungover to work the next day!
Girly nights (Em would kill me for calling it that!) with my girlz (hehe) eating many a snack
Chocolate Lave Pudding. Oh yeah!
The Fiddler. My local. Coolest place ever - always a good night!
Friday arvo drinkies (does this list involve a lot of alcohol?) when Alicia or Jem or just me and Mum will have champagne and nibbly bits watching the sun go down.
The ranch. I miss my house, the space, the garden, the people, the animals.
Mum's cooking - cheesy veggie bake, beef carpaccio, the awesome salads, tuna mornay, leek and potato soup and the large array of sauces that are presented beautifully for us each night!!!
I can't wait!!! 5 weeks baby!!!
