Phew..what a day.

Just sat down for a much needed cuppa before bed and logged in to say goodbye for a fortnight.

It has been a day of highs and lows. DS is so excited and has drove me crazy asking repeatedly 'where am I going tomorrow'..

DD on the other hand is utterly devastated and coming to terms with news this morning that one of her friends was killed last night. A car collided with him when he was riding his bike - he later died in hospital. She has only been home a couple of hours and I have had to guide her through her packing in between phone calls, MSN and Facebook. She has beenwith her friends all eveningand they went to lay flowers at the scene :(

So I can't feel excited..it is so wrong to. A lovely young lad, Lewis, just 16 years old has lost his life. All I can think of is his parents :(

In the words of Jerry Springer - take care of yourselves..and each other :hug2:

I just never know what to say on threads like this ;( somehow a forum just doesn't allow us to express the feelings but :hug2:s to you and your DD

I know it's hard under the circumstances but it does highlight that life can be unexpected and too too short not to live every moment to the fullest.

Yes, it's times like this when I think we realize that life is too short and that you have to live every moment.
