Wednesday and seeing our lovely son off was one of the toughest days of my life. I was heartbroken. Then we got a call from him from Dubai ( Dubai!!) to say he was having an 'awesome' time. Then we got a call to say he had arrived safely in Melbourne. Just now I got a text to say he has been playing Aussie rules football, the weather is perfect and he loves everything. He sounds very happy and relaxed.
As a result so are mum and dad.
It reminds me that some of the best results and learnings come from pushing yourself out of the comfort zone. We have all been way out of our comfort zone with this trip, but I am 100% sure it will have many positive benefits for us all.
So, other half and I are in London. Today we work, and tomorrow we play play play. Time to relax, and enjoy being a couple.
I will report back on our London adventures over the weekend.
Thanks so much to all of you for your support and encouragement.
