Going back to Abu Dhabi after being away for more than 3 months makes me realized that I am actually missing my good life here as a mom and as a person. It took me awhile to adjust (not that easy) but I did and I started to be happy! I was busy with lot’s of things going on around me. School events, volunteering, watching my son doing his sports, meet ups with 3 groups of friends, family time, even errands I find it good as it’s my me time to be alone and do some houseworks and I do love cooking, little luxuries in life (that we cannot do in NZ) like some brunching (in 5*hotels) with friends and family, theme parks, fine dining and more travels.
The lifestyle here that I became adjusted to really makes me wonder why life keeps giving us a crack after I finally settled in. So yes, we’re back to New Zealand and so many things had happened while we were away for 4 years!! Life is not the same anymore or perhaps I am not the same anymore. (Sigh!)
Coming back here in AD for a quick visit so our family can be together again. Life sometimes sucks being an expats but it also gives you a lot of opportunities and new perspective in life that we didn’t know before.
So shall we go back for longer period in the land of the desert and opportunity? I don’t know. Guess I just leave it for the fate to pick us up and go with the flow. It happened before so I won’t be surprised if it happened again. So far all I know is… this is another home away from home!
