Oh dont worry hun I was dreading it to I was a mess everytime I spoke about it or to him haha, I even went to see him off but I didnt get to see him :'( but if Im honest the not getting to see him of made it that bit easier he phoned me instead. Im now on day 4 yes I miss him like crazy but im ok :) I didnt know how I would feel but I know he will phone me soon and i feel better for posting my first package!! x
