Bright Lights.............

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.

Hope you're enjoying yourself as much as us. I'm missing Jordan too, and I'm sure he's having an awesome time snowboarding. We will be phoning him on his return to the Uk on Sunday. Meanwhile like you we are living it up - well as much as you can with a 6 year old in tow.

Sounds like a terrific trip and also good chance to be alone as couple. Often a good time to look at one another and say, "Oh, I remember why I liked you." Have fun.

You know what's going to happen don't you? He's going to apply to uni there, then emigrate.

Expat Mum- It has crossed our minds! However, it won't be for a while as he wants to go to Newcastle university so he can get a season ticket to the beleagured Toon, and the Newcastle Falcons. He already has his flat pinpointed..just needs to get in now. LOL. I am not sure he would leave his beloved Lakes behind easily either.... we shall see.
