I miss my boy

It's the no contact thing. He's been away before for a week or so but I've talked to him on the phone or texted him, but no contact whatsoever for 10 days is pretty hard.
Does anyone live in Kaikoura? What's the weather like? Have you seen the Spirit of New Zealand sailing passed? Is she tackling high seas and stormy weather? Please tell me it's beautiful and sunny. I don't think so. Storm warnings the other day. I hope it's not that bad there. No contact that's the thing. I guess we would have heard if it was bad. He's probably having a wonderful time - I can just see him swinging from the mast.
I had a dream about him last night that he was back and I was trying to ask him what the weather had been like but I just couldn't get it out of him - he kept getting distracted and wouldn't answer me. He said he was cold. Only 2 days to go now.

I guess its part of them getting ready to leave the nest I think its harder for us then them my son always seems to have a blast when hes away.

Oh Lianne that has to be so hard and the knowing you can't get in touch makes it even worse. Be strong girl, only another 2 days to go.

Yeah I saw it honest - there was a big sign hanging off the edge of it saying ..."if you see my mum, tell her I'm safe and having an awesome time" Lol! I know what it's like babe - I missed Caitlin like crazy when she was away in Fiji for ten days!
Love that sexy new side bar and love even more that I'm at the top of the list .... so much for having a name starting with A!

oh Lianne you poor thing - I'm sure he's having the time of his life. It'll be giving him a taste of wanting to travel and experience even more (you probably don't want to hear that sorry!)

Oh Lianne, I feel for you! He's sure to be having a grand time and will come home full of his adventures.
Hang in there!

Oh Lianne everyone I know who went on the Spirit just loved it, it will be great for him, but I feel your pain and I don't even have kids!

I am sure James is having the time of his life, hang in there only a few more days to go and he will be home.

I am coming to scrap camp - yes!! Just wanted to share that lol. I don't have kids old enough to be away for 10 days with no contact but i can certainly imagine that it would be difulcult for you - i bet he is having a blast - it would be such a great adventure!

Hey no news is good news and they certainly wont be risking those teenagers so they will pull into a bag where its less severe. A girl I know went a couple of years ago and this happened and thats what happened.
Its no use saying dont worry...every woman does...so be easy and its not long now to see your boy!

Its hard eh? My 9 yr-old was away last week on school camp for 4 days with no contact. A very strange feeling so I know what you're going thru. I'd better not mention that capital "W" word. Could stand for all sorts - Wild, Windy, Wellington!!!!! lol Will be better weather in Kaikoura. Has to be!

Reckon I might be the closest to Kaikoura. It is on the East coast from me....great place....awesome views of the coast.
Ah....gorwing up. All of sudden they let go and we are left clinging.....he will be fine.

Love all your work. Make me a nice banner like that aye!
