Thanks soozi...what a beautiful message.
I spoke to my sister today. When she said she didn't have room for me to stay it was a fib instead of just saying not this weekend. I told her I felt I couldn't come spend time with my daughter. Everything is clarified now. I think i will go down next weekend. It's the only about 6 weeks until school holidays. My daughter will come up then.
I went and visited my puppy today...nothing like a puppy hug to make me happy. He's so cute. He fits in my hand. 3 more weeks and he moves in. Can't wait. I'm looking forward to having a dog to train and spoil.
Thanks for all the support guys. It really does make all the difference.
