A Sad Farewell

Today we all got up at 5am to say our goodbye's, it was very sad. Dave took Liam and Maddy to Manchester airport to catch their flight back to Germany.

It's a shame they only had such a short stay due to their work commitments. And also that two out of five days were spent travelling! But we made the most of the other three, packed with things to do as a family it was really nice.

As a mum the "maternal instinct" has set in and I've felt very "flat" since they left which isn't like me at all, but it can't be helped I guess. Looking on the positive side, they're both happy with their lives and that's all that counts really isn't it?

I'm glad Dave took today off work, I needed some hugs!

When he got back from the airport, he said there was something wrong with the power steering on the car. A couple of times in the past few days he'd felt it go "heavy" for a few moments.
Later on we went out to do some shopping and by the time we got back, it had gone completely...

So he carefully drove it to the dealership and stayed while they did some tests. It turned out to be a faulty sensor of some sort, they ordered a new one and kept the car overnight. It's still under warranty, so no charge. Thank goodness it didn't happen last week when we were in Devon, or even on the way TO the airport today, PHEW...!
