I miss my family.
They’re all in the US right now, having a bit of a trip over the Christmas and New Year break. I should have joined them, I realise now.
I thought I would be fine, going just as I am, spending Christmas with my partner’s family, catching up with friends I hadn’t met in a while and just taking a break from work in general.
Such conflicting feelings of not being ‘preoccupied’ (work) and wanting to enjoy quality time with family on the other side of the world at the moment.
Somehow I feel all alone in the world and seeing my partner’s family makes me miss them all the more. That holidays mean so much less.
Miss you all lots.
