Mums visit

Mum left today. She was only here for 4 days this visit, so it seems as soon as she got here she left again. Usually she stays for a month, so this trip was extra short. But she came up with my aunt and uncle - her brother so it was easy for her flying etc as she gets a bit nervous.

So we crammed so much into 4 days, we didn't stop! But I am always so sad when she leaves, I usually wallow around for the day looking for her, feeling lonely and sorry for myself. I feel like that now. At least she has seen the farm, and the shed and the animals and now she knows what the hell I am talking about!

We had a family bbq last night. The Hubbster, the kids, Mum, my aunt and uncle and my cousin and her hubby who live here. It was awesome, but it reminded me of what I am missing by living so far away from my family. Mum has 3 brothers and 2 sisters so therefore I have over 20 cousins and I miss the big get togethers that they have down home.

But this is MY home here now and my little family are growing up HERE so I need to focus on that. And it's such a beautiful place to live, so that makes it easier.

Glad you had such a nice visit. Hopefully life will get back to normal soon and you won't feel so homesick.

I understand completely where you are coming from.
I used to live 90 minutes away from my mum but now it's four hours!
There are some days when I would just love to be able to drop in to her place for a cup of tea and a chat.
My mum went home today after six days here.
We both really enjoyed it.
My XY7 and I waved her off in the train. As we walked back to the car, my eyes filled with tears - I know hers did too.
