  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
My baby. by johnnythemonkey on 29 June 2008 6:39am
Well she's actually 15 but still my baby. She's going on holiday to Greece with her friend and her father and leaving later today, firstly to spend a couple of days in Manchester, then going to Skiathos on Tuesday.
I'll miss her so much, she's my wee rascal but I know she's growing up fast and I have to accept the fact.

Johnny you never stop missing them/worrying about them! When, for example, Si is on holiday I am not completely happy until he's back - although I'm less worried now than when he used to go on holiday with 20 mates (you can imagine the sort of holiday!!). And he'll be 33 in July!!

However - she'll be fine, John and back in the nest before you know it, having had a wonderful holiday.

Anne :)

Mine just turned 12, and I signed a permission slip for her to leave the music school where she's attending band camp to find lunch at the lunch break. This is in a city, but not a particularly bad part, and she'll probably be with a group. I just hope she doesn't get distracted, get lost, and then wind up missing the African drumming part of her day camp. I paid a lot of money for that camp! ;-)

I hope your daughter has a good time in Greece, Johnny. Anne is right--you won't rest easy until she's home, but try to think of all the fun she's having.

Or maybe not...;-)

I know the part if Dad says "No!" ask Mum and t'other way round, because with all the advice from two sets of parents, something will register!
They will have a great holiday within your limits.
