Well this is a tough one to write. Lucy moves out today, she’s starting college in AIT. It was only a matter of time before she left but it doesn’t make it any easier.
Lucy is not just my beautiful daughter, she’s also my best friend. I’m going to miss our night-time chats, our kitchen dances, our giggling about silly things that no one else would find funny, her wonderful cooking and those are just a few things. I’m going to miss her. I’m sitting here typing with tears streaming down my face, and those of you who know me will know I’m not one to cry.
I know she will come home, probably laden down with a months worth of washing but it won’t be the same. Time moves on, life changes, I don’t like it but I have to live with it. On the other hand I’m so incredibly proud of her and so excited to be sharing in the next stage of her life, even if it’s from a distance.
Years ago I remember sitting in the cinema with Lucy and Jono watching Mamma Mia (don’t get me started on that!) This song started playing and my head fast forwarded to this day. Lucy I love you, look after yourself and you’ll always have a home here xxx
