Well the goodbyes are now underway and I must say it is worse than I expected. It started on Saturday, at my sister's wedding, as some of the family who were there, we wont see again before we leave -it was very difficult. We are currently doing the rounds visiting, having meals and drinks etc and I hate it. However, I must admit, the more I do it, the easier it seems to get. I have left all the close family and friends til last of course and I think this is going to be the hardest thing ever. I would have preferred to do them all first, but this was never going to happen!
Amber is currently GLUED to my mum and dad and I fear I will have to prise them apart on Saturday night, with floods of tears. If you are in the UK watch out for the flood warnings in the North West of England on Saturdays weather forecast!
We have also packed our cases, well most of them, and this had Sean's mum and his sister in floods as well, it brings home the finality of it all. I keep telling myself and them, that we are only a phonecall away and that nothing is permenant, except death. It seems to be working!
Can't wait to get on the plane on Sunday, although I know I will be in bits for the first part of the journey, I will also know that the hard part is over and I can start to look forward to what lies ahead of us.
See you all VERY soon
