I don't know how far this list will go - mostly because I don't know if I can type very long through the tears.
I will miss the green. It is green everywhere here. Beautiful green dales. Beautiful green fields dotted with white sheep.
I will miss lambing season. Green fields dotted with big AND little sheep.
I will miss the history. To stand in a building that was built before Columbus sailed the ocean blue - fantastic.
I will miss the stone houses. I am returning to the land of stucco.
I will miss having a front yard with grass. My new home will have rocks in the front.
I will miss sticky toffee pudding at the Queens Head.
I will miss the secure feeling we had on base. I could do my shopping and the kids could sit on the floor near the tv's and watch a video - with at least 5 other kids they knew sitting on the floor too.
I will miss that in just a few hours I could be in a different country - seeing things I never thought I would see.
I will miss our church family.
I will miss teasing A. Stewart about his Scottish accent. He'll tell you that if you want to know what heaven looks like just go to Scotland.
I will miss my friend Ellen. Good thing is she's from Tucson so we're sure to cross paths again.
I will miss our friends, our neighbors, and probably all those things that in the last post I said I wouldn't miss.
Next blog will be coming from Arizona - where I probably won't ever be called Mum - but I'll keep this blog to remind me of where I've been.
