You may remember from a previous post (or have worked it out from knowing that I"m in Sydney and he, as his name suggests, is in Tasmania) that I am 1200km away from my beloved.
Most of the time we cope ... we've got the communication part of the relationship down - we can and do talk about just about everything and understand each other pretty well I think.
Other times its just really really hard.
Last night he was at home in bed when I rang at 9:30pm ... he'd had a long cold day, football excursion with the kids he trains, it rained, it hailed, it snowed!!! (we had perfect 23C Autumn weather in Sydney!), the bus ride was almost 2 hours late back to school, it was just a really tiring day (that's just one of the things people who think teachers are overpaid and underworked don't take into consideration!!!! ... don't get me started on THAT topic!). All I wanted to do was be there ... as you would.
But I can't be there ...
And it's a bugger sometimes, it really is!
