Following the College’s Graduation night where I gave a speech as the Year 12 Leader, encouraging my “little chicks” to fly the nest…my young one has flown. How empty it feels not having P or Son 1 around and soon the two furry girls, Holly & Ivy will be on their way too. so then it will be just be just me in the company of multiple packing boxes. Although a little apprehensive about moving, I just can’t wait to be with my family again.

It certainly has been harder than I thought it would be, trying to maintain a relationship at such a distance. It is so hard to express what you want to say in text messages or chat…things get a bit tangled…and I really miss the contact – the hugs & cuddles.

Everyone at work has been great with their offers to help and no-one has baulked at the suggestion of a “packing party” …arrive at the door and be greeted with a packing box, your challenge is to fill it… I will really miss my colleagues – yes they are only teachers – but they are the most awesome people you could want to work with…

Well only 44 sleeps to go…
