Saying Goodbye

Whether it's your first time or the 50th, dropping your camp guy off at the airport is never fun.

Here are my top tips on how to cope when it's time to put him on the plane.

1. Stay positive! Keep in a good mood - even if your man isn't. He needs you to stay together at least until he's already on the plane.

2. Remind him that it's not permanent. How many "sleeps"until you see each other again? Counting down doesn't feel so far away.

3. Stay in touch! Text when he goes through the gate, send him a funny picture for him to see when he lands, use skype/facetime when he's settled in his room.

4. If/when you need to complain - complain to anyone but your guy! It's hard enough for him to be away from you without knowing you're not  keen on it.

5. BUT let him know how much you miss him. A quick "I miss you" before lunch will brighten his day without making him feel guilty for being away.
