I had leaving drinks last night. I’m going to miss all my London friends, though I’m only gone for a month.
I know I’m living the unexamined life at the moment, and I think one of the reasons that I keep thinking this holiday is going to be intense is that I’ll have time to stop and think, not to mention dealing with the cultural shock of staying with my family for the first time in ten years. I’m aware that I might be confronted with everything I haven’t had time to think about since I left Melbourne, then Amsterdam, and moved to London. No idea what it would be, I’m not *that* self-aware.
Bah, more than you ever wanted to know about me.

    you are thinking too much. just be yourself with your parents. or. find a floozy and just see them when you feel like it.

    It’s not my parents so much as being in the suburbs without a car, just like a teenager.
    I know I’m probably thinking too much but it’s gotta happen sometimes. I’m sure it’ll all be fine.
    Now I’m off to the sauna.

    I felt the exact same way when I was going home for a holiday.It really does suck being in the suburbs without a car- but the good thing is cos you are on holidays people want to drive you around. So you don’t worry,it will be nothing like being a teenager again!
    have fun and see you when you get back

    oooh Mia! Why don’t you rent a car? So you can go wherever you want? Do you still talk with your friends from school? Maybe they can drive you around and show you new stuff you haven’t seen since you left. Should be fun anyway! XXX

    Hey Rae! Ta for the tip.
    I’m just being silly, there’s a tramline right next door and it doesn’t take long to get into the city. And I’ll get to see my dog! Oh, and my family. And I can stay with friends on the weekends.

    I am never listening to your whinging about this again btw! I grew up in an inbred country town that had one shop (that sold petrol), had no transport, was freezing and was miles away from the city!!!
