Best Shot Monday - I'm back!

I've been away for the last 10 days or so in North West Wales on retreat.  Every day I took a 3-4 mile walk in the beautiful countryside.  It was a real gift.

Best Shot Monday - Departures


While this cannot be construed as a 'best photo' it is nonetheless where things are at today!  For at 4am we got up to take daughter no.1 to the airport for a new job opportunity in Dubai!! It's been a tough couple of years for her workwise with the recession (the media has cut back drastically) but this is an amazing opportunity.  Another goodbye and another daughter overseas (that makes 3 of them now!) has left me feeling somewhat emotional but this is a great opportunity and one I hope turns out to be truly fabulous in every way.  And she'll be back for Christmas so.......no need to get too emotional.... although you just can't help being a mother can you?
