Happy 5th birthday DGS
DD reading away to her pet goat "Prince". (her captive audience)
On the 4th our DS fluttered his wings and travelling with his sister (Beccy) and family headed west. His eldest sister (Mel) has work lined up for him, so they set off and thankfully all arrived safetly if not a bit later than was planned. We did hold a "sending off party" for him and those present duly gave words of wisdom, advice and warnings during the speeches.
I'm trying not to dwell on the fact that my baby has left the nest and instead (in my mind) am thinking of this as a prolonged sleepover or visit, that way I don't seem to cry as much. As to our new year resolutions, well lets just say that without this help they have been scaled down some and his absence can be felt everywhere. Oh gosh here I go again, have you ever tried typing and crying at the same time ?, makes reading a bit hard. Ok I have to go and do something else, channel my attention elsewhere, it seems to be working thus far..................
Will post our goals for 2012 next time.
