My daughter started talking about missing Sierra Leone and why she loves it... so I recorded it.
I talked him off the ledge, convinced him that driving to Wales at 8pm on Tuesday night wasn’t in anybody’s best interest and that there was a 90% chance that she was ok and had maybe exaggerated a little.
Obviously as a Mum you’re never really off duty, but for those few days I didn’t feel like I was “on duty".
Remember when you went on day trips with your family, church group etc when you were younger and each family had a blue cooler with ice packs in them? You’ll need one of those so check if your mum, grandma, aunty or grand-aunt has one.
Although it was not hot we had beautiful sunny weather which meant that we could enjoy the sandy beach and outdoor activities… many of our outdoor activities revolved around being able to buy seaside doughnuts and fish n chips!
