Another parenting milestone, and not one I was ever looking forward to.
Its going to be my first Christmas without my boy. :'(
He had been gone almost eight weeks – the longest its ever been for me not to see him at all – and he was briefly home from working in Mozambique so I got to see him for a few days.
But this morning I dropped him off as they head back to the dive centre with a massive trailer full of supplies and groceries.
And as I pulled the car into the garage at home I suddenly started crying when I realised I don’t know when I will see him again.
He’s working all through Christmas, and new year, and when they do come back into South Africa for supplies, they don’t come all the way to Joburg.
I miss him a lot, and I can talk to him on the phone, but its not nearly the same.
