Eldest gone back to uk
17 Apr 2010
Well it happened on the 22nd March! Worst day possible with the storm that day - just about reflected all our emotions! Kept hoping she would change her mind but Laura who is almost 18 has returned to the UK!
She didnt feel settled here and has gone back to go to college there. My brother has very kindly offered her a room for as long as she needs, but she is hoping to get a flat at some point. Had a couple of job interviews and was offered them both so is now gonna work at the De Vere hotel in blackpool.
I cant describe how devastating this has been to the rest of us - but i just want her to be happy and if that has to be in the Uk - well thats what I have to accept. She is in regular contact.
I know people say she will be back - who knows. You just want your kids to be happy, we are getting more used to the idea now and i can talk about it without crying so thats a positive stap at least.
