city gone country....
Yep....I've gone back to the country for a few days with the kids over the holidays. It's always a strange kinda feeling, heading into the old country town that you grew up. Each time I come home something has changed, and somethings will always stay the same.
We took the kids to a new park today and I ran into a school friend of mine (each of us now married with two kids). We chat, we hug, we laugh and all whilst pushing our babes on swings and dealing with tumbles and tears.
I walk down the main street (yeah, the only street)....stop every few paces to those that recognise me....and me thinking...who are you again? But I nod politely and engage in small talk.....
I'm a country girl I think. But then again, I'm also very city. Can you be both?
I love our little life in Melbourne, but really I have to question whether I just fake it....as I rarely leave my own postcode. I love hitting the highway and heading into open fields, and food and wine trails that have me salivating for fresh and tasty produce.....farmers that sell their wine in their own backyard..
...hmmm country or city. Which am I?
What are you and how do you know???
