Thanks for all your comments I really needed that. Its so good to have some encouragement.
I have just discovered my three darlings have all got bets on how long I will stay at home ! !!! What a cheek so I am now more than ever determined to make this work.
On a more serious note our son Mark is off to climb Kilimanjaro early in September & while I am excited for him I am also anxious too. Its awfully hard letting your kids go ( LOL he is 25 !!) but its still not that easy. He's climbing with four very good friends & they are making the trip in memory of James Dwyer who was killed in action on 27 December 2006 in Afghanistan, I am glad for them all just will be happy when they are all back home.
