Today we are selling our car, it's Matthews last day at school, and we are packing up to go back to England tomorrow.
Well here is my list of the things I am going to miss and not miss about California. It feels like I've been on vacation for the last 4 and a half years sometimes the vacation was from hell but mostly our dear friends helped us through, but now it's time for us to go home, enjoy my list.
All the good friends we have made.
Saying awesome in every sentance, people in England will just think you are a wack job if you did.
Beautiful eucalyptus trees on the walk to Matthews school.
Great sunshine most of the year round.
Being able to wear flip flops 80% of the year.
Swimming pools and spas at our disposal.
Beautiful snow capped mountains that are just 2 hours away from a sunny Beach
Target (I know sad!)
Starbucks on every corner
Drive through ATM's
Being close to great alternative therapies and doctors for Annabelle.
Car pool lane
Great friends oh said that one I guess going to really miss them!
The medical system
LA haze that you can't even see the mountains.
CCS (California children services)
Being so far away from family.
Having to be an advocate for my child having to fight for every thing you get from the state.
Santa Ana winds
Earthquakes (we experienced about 5 small ones, thank goodness no bigggies)
California wild fires
Not having a back yard.
Scary seven lane freeways
Medical system oh I said that already I guess I really won't miss it!
Not owning our own home, this our new home in England. I am going to be seeing it for the first time on Sunday I can't wait.
