Dear Olive,
Sad, but true. Yesterday was your second last play with Roxy. At least for a while, because next week they're packing up their life in Sydney and moving it on up to Coffs Harbour. Your Papa lives up there so there'll be plenty of visits. But it won't be the same as having them down here. It's really sad. I'm sad for me, but mostly I'm sad for you. You cried when I told you. You adore Roxy with ferocity - she's older, she has a scooter, she can pull crazy faces, she's totally cool. You're going to miss her. We both are.

Noooooooo. Not Roxy. That's way too sad. Is it jus a temporary move? The cousin relationship is the BEST isn't it? At least it's a nice place to visit. Right?
Geez, Olive is amazing. She is wise beyond her years. x

How sad to not have her little friend around. An opportunity for packages in the mail and Skype sessions between holiday visits perhaps?

Oh, makes me so teary...But, they have forged such a strong relationship already that nothing will get in the way. I hope Poppy looks up to Olive just like Olive does to Roxy.
PS cool face roxy! Xx

Oh, sorry to hear that news Olive! My best friend in the world is my cousin too - and countries have separated us at times over the years, but our hearts have always stayed close. It will be the same for you and Roxy, I promise.

How on earth did I miss this post?! She cried? Poor darling girl! How heart breaking for them. It's tough being away from family - we did it for years... but now that we've got kids, it would be that much harder.

At least they picked a holiday-worthy destination... the silver lining, I guess. x
