It was the dog that did it. She welcomed me back from the airport with enthusiasm, then looked around for the other person. Even checked the car. But no-one else was there, of course.

I should update it here, in case you miss it in the comments. He arrived safely. I am relieved.

Oh Bea.
That is just too sad.
Thinking of you.
I hope you're saving for the phone bills!!

Right now, when you need him the most, he's gone.

I hope you have a good network of family & friends around you.

And I agree with Carly. Those phone bills will be murder.

Thinking of you.

Oh Bea, I can feel your sadness in that post. :(

I'm glad that he arrived safely. I hope that you have some good friends that you can lean on right now who will take you out and help distract you a bit.

I'll be thinking of you and sending long-distance hugs!!

Oh Bea...

I am glad that Mr. Bea had safe travels.

But I am sorry that you are without him.

You are one strong lady.

Hugs and love to you.

Hi Bea,

This makes it so much harder - sometimes just being able to touch the other person makes you feel a little better.

As for the phone calls - when DH is away we Skype ( each other every day. The quality of sound is just as good as over the phone and it is free (well, all you need is a computer, Mac or a PC will do, and a net connection).

Take care.

Oh Bea. Hope you're feeling ok. Not easy, this.

Bea said...

Thanks, Snow.

Skype is great - we've used it before. Just have to get DH set up with a computer first, though. Til then, he has a phone card. And a mobile (to text - we're not made of money!). And a local internet cafe. I love living in the communication age sometimes. Wait, let me make that the 21st century. Phones, internet, ICSI...

Thank goodness for a great communication network hey.
