blog every day in may challenge - what do I miss?

What do you miss?  A person, thing, place, time etc.

I'm an exap Brit living in the US.

And before the US, I lived in Netherlands.
Missing things from back 'home' is something I know well.

My Mum.

A lady that loved to dance and had a song for every occasion.
A fighter to the very end.

My Dad.

He would have made such a fabulous grandfather to 3 grandsons and a granddaughter
and wasn't in this world half as long as he should have been.

My Sister and my Bestie.

Looking forward to seeing them this summer.

All our families and our oldest friends.

People that know us from old times and shared experiences.
That we don't need to start from stratch with.

Marks & Spencer

(Brits will understand this!)


(Dutchies will understand this!)

Thorntons Dairy Butter Tablet 

(probably good to miss this and not be overindulging on a regular basis!)

Riding my bike in NL.

Such a sense of freedom and ease being able to cycle anywhere
and everywhere.


(US malt balls do not compare!)

My kiddos going to be on time and
not up and down the stairs like a yo-yo!
Give me back my evenings please!

A trapped nerve has prevented me running for the past 2 weeks.
So I can't believe its me saying this, but "I miss running."

Late nights out on the town
 (I can barely make it past 11pm these days)

Wearing very high heels more than once in a blue moon.

I have so many shoes that are a little 'inappropriate' for
the daily running around I do.  Converse rule these days!



  1. I enjoyed reading this! I recently bought a pair of high heels and wore them the other day... My feet hurt for a couple of days...

  2. There is nothing better than Thornton's goodies! I was sat eating choc's from there last night!


Thanks for stopping by.
