Goodbyes

T minus 22

So the last full day in MK has arrived – after nearly 26 years in the town and 17 years in the house things are coming to a close. Yesterday was a sad day as we said goodbye to the Guinea Pigs. These have been my daughter’s pets. Just over 2 years ago we gained Cinnamon and Muffin, then just over a year ago Biscuit, Saffron and Jellybean. Sadly two have died over the past 6 months but yesterday Muffin, Biscuit and Saffron were given to my daughter’s friend. It was she that gave us the original two so it’s full circle. My daughter was particularly affected but we all ( even I) are missing the little “furballs”.
Last night Anita’s Homegroup had a barbecue goodbye – and this was our last official contact with the church. Faces we have known – some as long as 26 years were there and though we had a great time there were more goodbyes.
Today we have another mammoth clear up ahead, at the end of the day the kids leave with their grandparents leaving Anita and I to do the final clear up. Then will end an epoch which has taken me from a single guy in his early 20’s to parent of teenagers in his late 40’s.

  2. Sad times saying goodbye to friends and household friends; and future, exciting opportunities await. It is the advent. Advent is the prefix of ADVENTure and it’s no coincidence since it’s where adventure comes from.
    It’s an adventure ahead for everyone. And I pray it’s an exciting, rewarding ADVENTure for all. 😊👍
