a A lot happening in the skipper household at the moment. Amongst our bits of finishing off and refining our family home our eldest daughter is flying the coup so to speak. Heading up to the sunny part of our country...yes that time has come as it comes to us all and i am afraid i haven't been copping that well. I guess you know that one day it is going to happen but when it finally comes around and so so quickly it takes you back and you realise that finally that the day has arrived. I cannot imagine coming home and finding that the young lady that i share so much with will not be there and even though she will only be a phone call away i will find not looking at her smiling face seeing her reaction to every word i say , very very difficult. You can talk to your husband or friends but i guess only mothers that have had their children already leave will totally understand. I would really appreciate any ones advise or help as i am feeling very lonely and she hasn't even left yet.
