Quite often I can be heard commenting that the world is a smaller place now than when my husband and I were younger. I realise this is not actually the case, but we live in a world of cheap flights and brilliant technology so really you coud be halfway around the world but still feel like you are in the same room as someone!
This fact has made me very Thankful this week, see Spartacus has flown off to Berlin to wonder at amazing buildings and learn lots of wonderfulingenious technologies for clever buildings! All well and good but for the fact that we spend loads and loads of time together with very few nights apart and I MISS HIM SO! Dont get me wrong, Ive spent my evenings organising the house and re arranging furniture and decorating so Ive been productive without him but I really am looking forward to his return
So it was a beautiful and happy moment to use Skype for the very first time this week and have a conversation as if he was sitting right by me. He's 'even virtually' tucked the kids into bed!
So this week my Thanks are huge and aimed straight at modern technology and the wonder that is Skype!
