It was really nice being able to talk to some other expat wives and find out where everyone is living as almost everyone there lives in our area. It will hopefully make it easier to meet new people, all I have to do is have a sneaky look out of the window every time I see someone pass the gate.
One thing that is really starting to get difficult is introducing myself to new people constantly, it really makes you long for those friends from the UK that have been in my life for ever. There is nobody here that knows my favourite film, or food. Nobody that I have any funny stories or catchphrases with. No inside jokes. Nothing that proves I could be funny or silly or anything before now. Maybe a fresh start and a clean slate is good in some ways and that's just what I need to focus on.
It seemed a bit unfair that afterwards once Sarah dropped me off I had to just get on with the chores and the boring things again. I just don't think that coffee mornings at the parish church will ever be the same again.
