If you can go out for the night and get really drunk and then you will sleep well and be thinking of your hangover in the morning and not DC. It does work!
Just don't post on the forum unless you are sober.
Hi My 14 year old DD is doing her D of E this weekend and I'm getting a bit panicky about her in Wales with only her friends,a tent ,a rucksack and lots of sheep!!
Any one out there got DC doing their D of E soon or already done it-I'd love some "piece of mind "before she goes- as it is I think I will be a nervous wreck from Sat am till she returns Sun eve!!
Any tales to tell !
I will assume you are thinking of all the worst things that could happen but these things are usually run by an experienced teacher in charge of the whole programme. You could find out how long the teacher-in-charge has been doing this and how successful it has been in the previous years.
The children will have had all their briefings and be mentally and physically up for a challenge and will have a ball.
Perhaps, pack mini emergency packs of chocs and goodies in case she gets peckish, extra socks,gloves and a long sleeved vest or jumper in case she is colder than expected. Keep spares in separate plastic bags so they stay clean in the bottomless rucksack.
A small tube of Arnica Cream to rub on sore feet just before bed keeps them feeling rested for the next day. Don't ask why but it works.
The children will be in a highly charged mental state all weekend and should she come home shattered on Sunday, don't worry. Get a nice hot bath and welcoming home dinner ready. She will enjoy you fussing over her.
