I’m not normally one to hid how I feel…

I wear things on my sleeve

But the truth

on this occasion

well I’ve been putting off posting this blip.

It was almost a surprise 3 years ago

when my brother, wife and nephew picked us up at the airport

It had been so long since I lived near family,

that I didn’t know what to expect.

3 1/2 years on

they are moving away

I don’t really know what to say

I suppose we are lucky to have had them close for so long

but the truth is

I’ll miss the 4 off them.

It’s been so amazing having an extended family.

I can feel a tear hiding behind my eye even a week later.

It’s a great opportunity for them

but I suppose it’s always the ones you leave behind that feel the first few days

I can’t help but wonder if this is what our friends in NZ felt 3 1/2 years ago?

Good luck up north guys!

Hope the initial house hunt goes well.

We’ll be up to visit soon.
