I guessed once I had moved away I would be feeling homesick. I have always been close to my Mum, my family and my close friends, and relocating away from them all was going to be difficult. I will admit I have found it a lot harder then I originally thought and it has put a little strain between David and I, but I am working on it as best I can.
At first it felt like a holiday.. then I started working in my new branch, luckily within the same company, but it is a bigger store, it has more people working at one time, the stock room is up two flights of stairs, higher priced items.. it was a big, big jump. Luckily everyone has been very helpful and I’ve not settled in, but I think after a week of working there and having a Skype call with Mum brought it home to me. I had actually left home and was starting my new life.
Most evenings David has been working, and I think that is hard as well, seeing as I am in his room and not with him. He works really hard and I understand he can’t just change his hours, but as I’m working the days, I’m tired by the time he finishes work and sometimes I am even asleep. Sure, at least he is working and we both have jobs, but I have felt a little lonely some nights. Lots of Xbox, TV, Music and Crochet has helped
Saying all of that I know I wouldn’t change anything if I did it all again. Making the move to be with David has been the best thing I could of done, it has meant I am able to move my life on, be independent and try new things and see them too. Next phase is to find our home.. fingers crossed!
