Yesterday was a really hard day for me, a day I have been dreading for weeks.
I had to say good bye to my boy Oompa Loompas.
The hardest thing about me moving over here was to leave all my in-laws. We all lived about 20 minutes away from each other and I felt blessed to have them in mine and my children's lives. I used to see my sister-in-law most days, we were always popping into each others house for a quick cup of tea. Her children loved the fact that their cousins lived so close and we made the most of this wonderful connection.......................then we moved here and it all stopped.
I don't want my children to grow up not knowing their Grandparents, Aunties/Uncles and cousins. So every year at about this time, the boys go off to spend some time with them. Leaving me at home twiddling my thumbs, wondering why the house is so quiet. That is not entirely true as I do have baby OL with me and she is pretty noisy!!
Anyway, I was so thrilled this morning when I woke up to a lovely email with photos, (unheard of) from Prince Charming.............
