My Husband’s mates and consequently my mates, tackled the long trek to our place and endured the sleepless nights that babies bring just to hang out for a few days.
Just to sit up late and ramble and to explore this place we call home.
Just to have a few drinks and catch up.
Just to reminisce about way back when.
I didn’t sleep much but I laughed a lot.
My Husband did too. I would look at him and I would see the man who stole my heart all those years ago.
It was a great few days.
Now I am not only missing sleep, but I am also missing old mates, familiar stories and jokes that no-one understands.
One day we will get back there. Not today. Not tomorrow. But one day.
