My China girl

Well the deed is done!! I've said good-bye to my lovely daughter very, very early this morning & I won't see her again until nearly the end of the month (think I need a new ticker!)

I managed to snap a photo of Rachel & her friends ready to leave for the airport!




Rachel's flight is on time. I've checked & they set off at 9.25am GMT with a 20 hour flight ahead of her! Pretty big ordeal as she's never flown before!

the time has come....


up, up & away!


We didn't go to sleep last night! I thought I would come home & go to bed but I'm wide awake. Can't wait to hear that she's landed safely....

Thank You for everyone's kind wishes, love & support. Much love, Gez.xx

  5. It's such a huge step Gez. You have obviously done a good job for her to be so independant. Look forward to regular updates about her travels.

  12. Hugs to you Gez, it's going to be strange with Rach away, but what a fab opportunity for her. Lots of scrapping to be done when she returns with photos and stories.

  14. I reckon Rachel will just take the flight in her stride Gez - one of the benefits of being young! She'll have a whale of a time, I'm sure - Chinese language skills are set to be more and more important so if she enjoys it, she might set herself off on a career path, who knows?! Take care of yourself {{{hugs}}}
