Thankfully it's just for a holiday, and I still have my ten year old at home but I'm rattling round the house like a lost soul, pea whatever.... She's gone with daddy to see her Godfather who is in palliative care so - and this probably sounds silly- I like to think that this is sort of our gift to him. It's been keeping him going for the last few weeks and he's so very excited about her visit, but she's never been away for more than a couple of days before...
She only left yesterday and will be gone for 11 more days!! She's such a lively little chatter box and it's so, so quiet. I'm trying to tell myself it's good practise for when she starts school in September and it's great to spend uninterrupted quality time with my son (I aim to do lots of fun things with him when he's finished school), but I miss her dreadfully.
How does anyone else cope?
Thanks for listening to my pathetic whinging
