Things I Miss


The things I miss is things I didn't know I rely on so much....

Not being at home or in your comfort zone of a room or house, you really miss the things you would usually have taken for granted.

I miss a flushing toilet - It’s frustrating to go to the toilet (being a long drop) and turn around to flush. I feels like everyone is looking at me when I walk out and I instantly think they know I didn’t flush, as there is not flushing noise. On a different note its also very distracting to be on the loo doing your business and feeling wind blowing up from with in- eww. I am instantly grossed out and can’t finishes what I wanted to do. So I really miss a toilet.

I miss warm water - Have you ever taken a shower in freezing cold water? Don’t think so, specially when its  located outside and right on the beach so there is extra wind blowing.  There is so many people coming have a shower here and don’t look like it worries them!! Maybe I am spoiled!! Oh don’t get me wrong - its a beautiful view seeing everyone in their bikini’s and undies washing there private bits trying not to show anything or make it look like you are having play. Other than that it’s the flu waiting to happen.

I miss ice cubes - I don’t like my drinks freezing cold as I am more of a tea generation *wink wink* but E really misses the ice cubes. I miss a fridge more. The idea of leaving it i a fridge and knowing it won’t go off as easily as it would be out. It has made us super aware of how to plan what we are eating and been good in the fact that we eat left overs and there is not wastage. Proud of that fact too. 

This is somewhat related to the one above. I miss a microwave. Now

First world problems I know but this is what we are use to - spoilt child? not really just always easy access.

I miss a charged phone/computer - When you are at home, you don’t really thing about everything needing to be charged and that means you need running electricity. Well I miss that then too. I miss the ability to just plug in your phone or computer and know that it will charge while you sleep and the car battery won’t be dead when you plan to leave the next day. So our phones always end up off when we sleep. Very annoying when you wake up and wonder what time it is. No phone to check people.

I miss a microwave - I miss the idea of just warming something up, or smelting butter for a dish. Or left overs. Now its us warming left overs in the pot or pan and making heaps more dishes that what we wanted to, and using gas for our little gas stove (which seem to run our so quick). Gosh I miss connivence. 

I miss reception - Now it is good not being on your phone when out door and E and I wanted to be off our phones more and enjoy each other company. Although I think we are so use to it that every now and then you are just interested to check what is going on on tumblr or Facebook or in E case 9GaG. Its such a bad habit but I miss it. On a different side of this. I miss being able to text or receive a text and call just and when I like. I feel like I am missing out on things and people might think twice about texting or calling me, as we might not have reception or she never texts back. I will soon I get it. I do make the effort to call my family every 2/3 days to say we are still alive and generally email a few people and always reply to messages as I get them. 

I miss my family - I have been thinking about this lately. Usually when they are around you don’t really miss them or when you go on holiday for a month or 2 you miss them but this miss is different. Maybe cause I know its not a small holiday like we usually have. It might be a year or 2 before I see them again. I must be at the point where home sick really settles in and I want to go home!

Thank goodness for Facetime... oh wait not reception... *Sad Face*
