The bags are all packed (down to 2.5 Stone), all our affairs are in order and now it's time to say goodbye.
Friday saw the start of goodbyes to friends, with drinks in The Orange Tree. We were amazed at the number of people who came to wish us well (perhaps they were just checking we were definitely going)
To put off saying goodbye, we also had a lovely picnic in the park on Saturday afternoon, unfortunately it had to end and the time came to say goodbye to Katie, Tex and Tom, and we only just managed to hold back the tears.
Sunday came around all too soon, which meant BBQ, Bolli and Croquet at Nick's parents. After a lovely afternoon of chilling, eating way too much and enjoying the company, it was time for an emotional farewell, Susie, Hughie, Liz, Rich and Faith. We didn't manage to hold back the tears this time and it finally hit us that it's really happening and it's going to be a long time until we see everyone again.
Again we are delaying the inevitable and are saying our "final" goodbyes on Monday with friends, we better bring the tissues.
