To be honest I had barely missed the UK for the first two months in Montenegro. There are a some people I had affectionate thoughts of and it’s frustrating not being able to watch Match of the Day. But apart from that I was very satisfied being in Montenegro.
But I must admit Christmas time has hit a bit hard. It hurts to think of friends and family gathering without you. It’s nice to catch up on facebook but it also reminds you of what you’re missing.
Below you can listen to Coles Corner by Richard Hawley. The video comes across a bit cheap but the music and lyrics resonate with feelings of loneliness in a way that lifts the soul. Coles Corner was a traditional meeting point for Sheffield people. It was before my time but I must have spent hours just down from Coles Corner waiting for buses and friends and watching the world go by. Would love to spend just 10 minutes there now….
