Leaving on a Jet Plane

Since Cillian has been born we have spent almost every moment together, until the dreaded-not-so-bad-going-back-to-work thing that happened.

4770.1 KMs

You know when you break up with someone for the first little while all you think about is how amazing they were, all these wonderful qualities pop into your head - half of them I am sure are something you made up to romanticize the relationship and other half while accurate, when you were in...
