Just that really. I am really pleased that she finally WANTED to go. We have had all the usual from him, ie he doesnt bother half the time, but amazingly after the tears the other day about missing mummy, and being scared at the prospect she has been looking forward to it.

His parents and his new gf are going too, so she will have lots of interaction.

I feel sooooooo lonely already tho, i love her so much and we have become so close the past few months.

where has my pumpkin gone, its already way too quiet.

Aw, pirategirl.
It's good that she's gone happily, though.
And she'll have a lovely time.
Do you have any plans for this week?

pirategirl · 30/06/2007 11:13

um i do actually i have my driving test next week

arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh--in a pirate fashion voice.

i need to pass so bad, so we can have a good summer.

I think the best thing about it, is the time in my own headspace, thats a rare treat isnt it!!

pirate girl - my ds goes for a week on Monday. Whilst I have loads to do (jobs!) am dreading it completely. He goes for a week at Xmas and a week during the summer. He has been a bit upset about it this time not about his dad just that he won't see mummy. But he loves seeing his dad so that is okay.

I do find it hard to enjoy the time he is away, but then he is back before I know it and I wish I had made more of it.

What plans, apart from the driving test (good luck by the way) do you have?

pirategirl · 30/06/2007 20:51


i know what you mean, I am going to enjpy a bit of time to myself, and just hope too it goes quickley.

Wish the sun was out for a sunbathe!!!

I was gonna go out tonight but cant find the right frame of mind, its peeing down.

The driving will take up mon-wed, with lessons then the test on wednesday. I have already bought a car!!!! hopeful eh.
