I Miss My Boy Lots Today…

When I woke up this morning- something was missing… it was a really weird feeling… and I only realised a couple of hours later that it was Damien I missed!

I haven’t spoken to him in 9 days & 11 hours.

I phoned his camp this afternoon and they told me he’s doing well- he’s made some friends and he’s participating and having fun. I’m glad because he can be a bit of a loner sometimes. He’s never been particularly worried about whether he’s alone or with friends and he’s never been particularly keen on group activities (and this doesn’t help at school I can tell you that much- group work in the curriculum 2000 and something program is a huge part of the syllabus).

He could quite happily spend a whole Saturday in his room building with his LEGO or in the lounge attached to the PS2 controller! He once built a massive helicopter out of LEGO and dismantled his electric toothbrush to build the motor into the chopper’s rotor, the whole thing was about 50cm long from nose to tail-rotor! I wish I’d photographed it…

    I’m still alive. So sorry to have neglected you. But, rest assured, you are not the only one I have neglected.


    PS. Don’t read the other blogs I read as I said the same to them….this sounds suspiciously like a group email thingy.

    PSS. Now you can imagine how much I must miss my kids as it’s almost exactly a year since I saw them
