Something, someone… or actually everything and everyone! I truly miss EVERY BIT of England!
“Miss someone until they come back, or until you come back, until their absence in your life becomes something to be avoided at all costs. Miss them until you don’t have to anymore, until you’re reunited in your favorite booth in your favorite restaurant ordering your favorite meal, miss them until it feels like you never left. Or miss them until you can’t anymore, until the things you miss are identified and cataloged as things and not a person, until you figure out that easy company and long talks and unblinking, all-knowing eye contact will find you again the way they found you the first time. Miss someone until you don’t.”

I think the thing I’m gonna miss the most about England is, of course, the English language! I love speaking English!!! And being back in France & having to speak French all the time almost kills me! I mean, even the people who are perfectly able to speak English won’t do it (but I admit that what I’m asking may be a bit too much :s!!!).
Then I’m gonna miss the country and especially my very fancied comings & goings to my so cherished London <3!!!! You know my love for England & you may even better know my love for London, so I don’t think I need to develop that point ^^!!!
I am also going to miss… (yes I’m gonna say it!) the English food! Don’t be surprised but I’ve been very well surprised on the matter of the English cuisine! There are lots of very yummy things and to be honest, I couldn’t live somehow else than the English way now (and this is not only for what might concern the breakfast-lunch-&-dinner aspect ;)!!!).
My second to last thingies I’m horribly going to miss are all the adorable nicknames people are used to giving! From darling to angel, sweet pea, sweetie, and the list can be long… Even if you don’t know the person more than that, this is just something you do and it’s extremely all-peaceful! When I came back in France two days ago, the first thought that came to my mind was « OMG but people are SO rude!!!!!! » ! And I truly think I won’t be able to get used to this French rudeness all over again, not this time, not after 6 months in England!
And at last & above everything else, I’m awfully missing all the amazing people I’ve met over there! I miss them like hell! These people allowed me to start from scratch, to have a massive clear out in my life and kinda start a new one! They’ve done things no one has never done for me before and they’re simply all so very wonderful!!! I love them a lot and I am so happy I’m keeping in touch with ALL of them! I can’t wait to see them again… but I promise them I will see them soon, I will see them again VERY soon!!! For this very special reason, I wanna end this post with a positive-thinking quote…
“I like to see people reunited, maybe that’s a silly thing, but what can I say, I like to see people run to each other, I like the kissing and the crying, I like the impatience, the stories that the mouth can’t tell fast enough, the ears that aren’t big enough, the eyes that can’t take in all of the change, I like the hugging, the bringing together, the end of missing someone.”
