    Well its been confirmed hes away for 3weeks but it could be extended to 5...Hes working on an island in Malaysia... Im gutted because i miss him but its too good money to turn down. I suppose the upside being he doesnt work away all the time just stints every couple months or so but usually in the UK so i can drive to see him..

    Tough when you miss him but try to make the most of your time alone. Do things you wouldnt normally do if he was around. Invite friends over, go see a really cheesey chick flick, have a lovely girly day out with a manicure and a great lunch. And just think how great it will be when he does get home :)

    imagine how much weight you'll have lost when he gets back and think how gorgeous you'll look after he hasn't seen you for a bit :)

    it will be a great opportunity to do things you maybe don't do when he's home, catch up with friends etc

    remember absence makes the heaart grow fonder xx

    How true lol? Defiantly miss him lol

    We have a holiday booked for 5weeks at the end of novemeber so maybe not seeing him for a bit will help us both as we are going to be together everyday all day when we go away? And im less likely to east take aways and crap when hes not about lol.. i think its just at the moment i feel the need to munch carrot cake :0/

    :) you will survive!
    Mr G works away lots and is often in Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong etc for weeks on end I keep myself motivated by knowing that when I go meet him off the plane he will see a difference. I have fun and do the things that you just wouldnt do with him around like face packs and painting toenails while watching cheesey chick flicks in the living room

    I also send him an email every day , he cant always access them but he gets them eventually and always replies when he canits good because the phone calls can sometimes be hurried or none existent because of the time differences

    Start your holiday prep while he is away pamper yourself and chill out

    take care x Gen

    Well we've been lucky he can access his emails so thats a bonus but its just phone calls that are hard so we've decided on a weekend because im off work we are going to try out that skype instead, saves the pennies too as i discovered £50 in less than a week in credit is disgusting!!! :(

    I thought i had a tough time with him working away, but luckily its mostly just work for a month or two every other month or so, he does offshore and onshore work so its good when it comes along!! Thanks for your reply though, it defiantly helps being able to sulk about it lol x
