Today is a sad day for me as I had to wave goodbye to my daughter Jade and sister Donna. We had spent 2 wonderful weeks with them but now they have flown back to the UK and our house feels so empty. I know I’m going to see them again next year but it doesn’t stop me from feeling that a part of me went with them. But I have been left with hundreds of photos and beautiful memories.
Our 2 weeks together was spent visiting Magura Caves, Belogradchik Rocks,Vidin and Montana. All our sight seeing was thoroughly enjoyable and full of laughter. We took a walk round our village and the surrounding countryside, although it was more like a hike by the time my daughter took us high up into the hills, but it was worth all the puffing and panting because the views from the top were amazing. We were lucky to have one week of beautiful warm weather but the second week turned extremely cold and wet. We spent some of those days indoors but it didn’t spoil our time together. We spent our time talking, crying with laughter and watching a few chick flicks! Poor Andy!! The icing on the cake was it was my 50th birthday and I got to spend it with them, the best present ever. These past 2 weeks have flown by far to fast, I just wanted it to go on forever but it’s now back to reality, for the moment anyway because Andy is on his way back from Sofia and he’s bringing back his parents as they are visiting for a week. Time for me to wipe my tears and get on with the cleaning before my next guests arrive !
P.s. I love and miss you Jade and Donna xxxxx
