A happy but sad goodbye....... a little splendid......


Our beautiful Corinne (g/daugther) who has been living with us for the past 3 1/2 years is now on a wonderful adventure..... she has moved to Japan to live and work for 18 months or so.
I will miss her sooooo much but I am excited for her as well.
It is so easy to keep in touch these days even though she is so far away and I know that there might be a little holiday to visit her in the new year......







Miss you heaps.....
gosh she has only been away a little over a week.....
silly aren't I ?

Not silly at all. Corinne has always had a special place in your heart and always will. A holiday in Japan is definitely something to look forward to.
