For 27 years I have filled a Xmas sock for her.
But not this year.
Because now she is wandering far from sockland.
On August 19th last, herself and her main man packed their rucksacks, waved goodbye to their safe lives and ventured forth to travel the world. They bravely took themselves out of impending settledom, gathered their nerve and flew to adventure.
So far, they have rattled their bones in Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador and are now languishing in Peru.
She is the first born. A good girl. Responsible, hardworking, loving and caring. And careful.
This was a big decision for her.
I'll miss her dreadfully but I wouldn't wish her here for all the tea in China.
