I hope this post isn't too dull, I am writing it whilst being in bed. I struggled to sleep last night and woke up early so I thought an early night was in order.
I went into work this morning and our usual supply teacher told me that tomorrow will be her last day with us. She then told me she will be immigrating next Wednesday to Australia. She proceeded to tell me she was fed up with the weather, the pressures put on her husband by his work and generally never being able to do things.
I can completely understand where she is coming from and I have spent quite a lot of the day thinking about how brave she is and why I continue to follow a path that I haven't been happy following for many years.
I know that I would never move away from my eldest son but the time will come when he will most likely move away. Would I move then, somewhere that the houses are cheaper, the scenery better? Probably not, because I would never leave my dad whilst he is ill and I would not leave my mum if she didn't have my dad.
There are also other people that I care about that I would like to be there for, should they ever need me.
So I guess I am destined to live where I am and continue trying to survive in a very expensive part of England.
And try to make sure that I can always visit my amazingly brave children, who seem to have the will to do something that I cant do.
I walked five miles today
Have a great evening and take care xx
