A Day In My Life!

Extracts from this document...


A Day In My Life! The birds were already calling to each other in the early morning stillness from the backyard, as saw a glimpse of the rising sun sliding through my window. It all seemed as just another normal day of my life, when I suddenly remembered that this was the day I have being anticipating for a long time and no doubt is going to change my life forever. The flight to London was past midnight and I will be going back to the land I was born after fifteen long years. I had to go out to the back garden and inhale a breath of morning fresh air for one last time. The leaves on the trees rusted gently in the barest breeze as my parents stood in the damp grass, sipping their morning cup of tea.

As I walked out of the massive airport I was feeling numb. I think I was felt fear and happiness at the same time. Once again I was peering through the windows. The roads (or motorways as we call it in England) were huge in comparison to most roads in Sri Lanka and there were thousands of buildings, mostly made out of bricks lying on either side of the road. It was early morning when we got to my uncle's house and his family warmly welcomed us. I was exhausted by the journey and went to get some sleep after awhile.
