I have been thinking about the list still to complete from last week (or the week before!) - 10 things which make you happy - I have to tell you taking my GG to the airport for the long haul back to Sydney definitely won't be on it! It's been so lovely having her around for the last few weeks and the house won't be the same for a while...I'm totally exhausted but in a good way (mothers, you know what I'm talking about)...have just been reading S's post at semi-expat in oz about her secret fondness for Abba - it brings to mind one of their old slushy songs which I never in a million years ever thought had any relevance for me..how wrong can you be?
Slipping through my fingers ...Sometimes I wish that I could freeze the picture
& save it from the funny tricks of time.....
This sums up my feelings at the moment - sentimental & slushy I know, melancholy, yes, definitely...but it feels right to be...tomorrow the tears will have dried and I shall be talking to her, listening to her plans for the new semester and sharing her new adventures....that will feel right too but today the wound is fresh & deep....I shall miss her........s
