My eyes are leaking

My eyes have been leaking all day, uh oh another ear juice saga?Nope I have bawling like a baby because the sister and nephews left for Hamburg today.I held it together most of the time, but certain things just got me. I finally cried my little heart out just after i shut the front door as they drove off, especially when I saw that the nephews had left their little Christmas bears behind. Thank goodness I had college tonight to take my mind off it for a while.
On my return from college, I got a text off Jemma saying that they had arrived there safe and sound. Whats more the kids behaved themselves on the plane, miracles do happen. Their dad Ste was waiting for them and had even decorated their hotel room with Christmas lights. Although I will miss them a lot, I know this is a great opportunity for them. It also means another holiday destination for me!


  1. Dear Claire...those leaking eyes will dry after awhile; you're already thinking positively. Maybe a German hunk will knock you off your feet when you visit.
    Maybe you can look up Sanni!

  2. My poor Claire. :( You'll always miss them, but it will get easier...I left home and missed my little sisters like mad (one was still small) and it stunk, but was easier to accept....and like you said, now you have a new place to visit!

    Big hugs

  3. I'm sure you'll be over there at the earliest opportunity! x

  4. I think you'll love Germany and at least it's not as far as it could be. Look on the bright side, you can send your nephews some of your marvelous artwork - cards and letters are great things!

  5. Now, there's the spirit Claire! Another travel and/or holiday destination for you! I don't know what I would do, how I would handle it, if my daughter and my two little grandkids here were to be leaving me for some place even if it were only 10 miles away from me. I'd be bawling my eyes out too!

  6. Bless your heart. I ♥ you, Claire Bear! :(
