Family in Oz

Right now my parents are here in Sydney to visit me. I am absolutely loving it. It is the first time that I can show someone from home how I am living here on the other side of the world. Every day I show them around in the city that I love so much and spend time with them at my favourite spots. I love to be able to call my mum in the morning, and not think about the 10h time difference, invite her for breakfast and chat with her on our balcony. Even though it might sound weird to some people, we also spend time together just doing domestic things like cleaning my apartment or baking together. It is very new to me to have someone help me here and it kind of makes me sad thinking that I won't have this for very long. Life is a lot easier if you have your mother close to you, just simple things I have no idea of, like cleaning or cooking matters, are different if you can ask your mother about it. I am enjoying my time with them here right now but I also fear the moment when I have to say goodbye to them. It is going to be really hard, but right now I don't want to think about it and rather enjoy them being so close to me.
