DD1, my baby DoomHamster, has just been taken by her grandfather to catch the coach which will take her to Heathrow airport to catch her flight to the USA.
For her, the adventure begins anew, and I know she will have a wonderful time.
But I miss her already. Just walking past her open bedroom door made me tearful.
Now for several hours of worrying and praying till I know she has got there safely...............
asking the prayers of St Tatiana, St David of Wales, St Nicholas the Wonderworker and St John the Wonderworker for the handmaiden of God Tatiana.
06.25 She is safely on her coach. Barring traffic snarl-ups, she should arrive at Heathrow at 10.30, ready for her flight at 13.30.
