Leaving Party tonight
03 Jan 2009
Well what a great night we had!! It was absolutely brill to see all our friends and family getting together and the biggest and best surprise of all was that my parents came down from Yorskshire to the party. They have always been against us going and have said they don't want to know when we go and wouldn't come to the party, but they did and I was so pleased as I think it is their way of giving us their blessing. The downside of it is I now have to say goodbye to them again tomorrow after thinking I had said my farewells to them last week!
Geoff got over his migraine and we had such fun and very few tears really. Just got a bit of a headache this morning!!

Tonight is our leaving party and I can't decide how I am feeling about it. Not sure whether I am sad to be leaving or happy as so many of our friends and family will be getting together to see us off.

I have been full of cold all week so I am not exactly in the party mood and Geoff is in bed with a migraine as we speak! I think the stress of everything is starting to get to him.

I think a few drinks are in order to sort us out! I am taking plenty of tissues though as I am sure I will need them!
