Sometimes it's the little things that bring home to you the fact that you're living a completely different life when you live abroad. For instance, I asked my daughter what she wanted to have when I took her out to eat. As quick as a flash she replied, "octopus and fish (meaning grilled sardines)".
I just try to imagine my seven - year old self saying such a thing. No, it just doesn't come. Fish fingers were about as exotic as it got.
