With a hint of a tan on my arms and in my face. With blisters on my feet from wearing my summer sandals on long walks.
Sunshine. Family time. Laughter. Walks along the beach. Tasty ice cream. Handball game with an excited audience. Text messages. Some reading and knitting. Barking dogs and dog poo. Breakfast outside. Baby cuddles.
I had a good time, but often it felt as if something was missing. My boyfriend. Why do I keep on doing this? Going out of town and travelling without him...
Coming home felt better than going away.
