Well, our beloved DoomHamster is leaving Wales today and travelling up to England, where she will fly out to Denver tomorrow to permanently rejoin her husband at long last. The last two days have been filled with visits to family and friends to say goodbyes.
As you can imagine, her two youngest sisters have been very tearful last night and this morning as they said goodbye to her, for they will not see her again for another year. I am travelling with her - by coach - to the airport to keep her company while my husband holds the fort here with the young ones; we have a hotel room booked for tonight and she checks in for her flight mid-morning tomorrow.
I will be on the lunchtime coach trip back home to Wales while she crosses The Pond for a joyful reunion with Mr DoomHamster and the start of a new life and a new adventure together.
Prayers for safe travel for us both would be much appreciated...
