The OH and I are feeling a bit "lost off" (as they say here in Geordieland) at the moment. Last Sunday we waved goodbye to our youngest daughter, Kate, and her boyfriend, Craig, as they set off on their six-month trip exploring India and south-east Asia. It's a wonderful adventure for them, and has been well over a year in the planning. We're very excited for them, and more than a little envious, but there's no getting away from the fact that no matter how old your kids are you never stop worrying about them! And it does feel strange to think that they're so far away and won't be back for such a long time! Thank goodness for Facebook messaging, WhatsApp, texting and Skype!

My computer time has been extremely limited lately as not only have we been helping Kate prepare for her trip we've also had a friend staying with us for a few weeks. I did however make sure that I followed the discussion of 'The Secrets Beneath' in the [livejournal.com profile] ci5hq Reading Room. There has been some debate there recently as to whether it's a good idea to include fic written by folks who are still active in the fandom - my own take on the matter is that I was so, so chuffed that somebody cared enough about the story to want to nominate it for discussion in the first place (*bows to [livejournal.com profile] nypagan*)! I wasn't expecting it to be universally loved (although I was hoping that it wasn't universally loathed *g*), and I didn't have any preconceived ideas as to what opinions people might express. The most I was hoping for was that it might generate a dozen or so comments. So, it was a thrill to read all the ensuing discussion and really interesting to see just what everyone thought of the story. Many thanks then to everyone who took part, I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience (even though I was dying to add my own two-hap'orth on occasions! *g*).
