How strange is it when you dont live with your mum anymore? My dad moved out wehn i was 14 he now lives in tenerife i visit him when i can so i am used to not living with my dad but just recently my mum moved out and it is so strange her not being here, my mum is my best friend who i can talk to about anything now i have to pick up the phone and talk to her lol its weird, im happy for my mum moving and doing what she wants to do with her life its about time she had some happyness and i know she will always be there for me no matter what. so good luck mum

Awwwww ((((((huggggs)))))). I know your Mum misses you as much as you miss her, Mel. She feels kinda strange too, and as for being your best friend, I'm sure she is. She's EVERYbody's best friend... a wonderful lady. Yes, she made a good move there, and you're right when you say she'll always be there for you. I hope you'll be able to visit her sometimes and catch up on the gossip! Brightest Blessings to both of you, and I wish you all the happiness in the world, for the future.

Hi sweetie, you are being very brave about this. It's wierd when mums are not in the house isn't it? Feels kinda empty, but you'll get used to it in time, I promise. It's nice waking up in a morning and sharing a cuppa and crunchy nuts and knowing they are there when you get in or need someting, even when they nag it's ok really. Seems wierd when they go away, my mum and dad used to go away for weeks when I was working and they were on school holidays so the house always seemed empty. It will get easier in time, at least you can still talk to her every day.

Hi mel nice to met you , I havn.t known your mam for long but i do know she is a very careing person , it will be just as hard for her as it is for you I can promise you that . You seem to have the same strong bond I have with my mum she is 88 now and I still think of her as my best friend , AS you say your Mum is only at the other end of the phone and you will be able to tell he everything when you phone , and if you need her or she needs you its not too far away ( she knows the way now lol)my son is due a place of his own soon and I will be in the same situation and then you can reasure me , welcome to My Lot xx

and look at it this way Mel ya can talk here or on IM like I do . BUt you are closer than I am so maybe phone dont cost as much. When our daughter didnt live with us we were on the phone every day about 3-4 times a day so it is hard to let go of mom when she isnt under your feet all the time lol

Hi Mel. Welcome to myLot. Any daughter of Gabs will be instantly accepted by Gabs' "extended family" here on myLot. There are so many of us who love her without even having met her. We can understand how you will miss her. It must be a ball living with someone like Gabs. How wonderful that your mum is your best friend! Don't run up too big a phone bill. Love your kitten!
@mel_87 (859)

thank you about the kitten my mum sorted that one for me. im hoping we get free calls on the phone thats what they told mum so hopefully we wont have a big phone bill lol thank you for accepting me i can see on here that my mum is well loved

Aw, its hard to live alone. It's hard to have someone you rely on move out. It will get easier as time passes. I hope you can still call her and see her(your mom) on a regular basis? It's nice to see that you're so optimistic about her moving. You seem to be taking it very maturely.. Im sure she's proud of you.

It's a very strange feeling indeed to start living separately from your family. I still remember the day I got married and moved out, because I was so used to having a big family and all of a sudden the environment was so quiet and different. It took me a lot of time adjusting.

I now what you mean. When I moved away it was like I lost my bestfriend. MY mom now lives 4-6 hours away and I dont drive so I dont get to see her much anymore. Im really glad your mom is out there enjoying life.

This was how I missed my daughter after she got married. She worked late and I left the door latch off so that she could let herself in. It was usually before 12 midnight. Every night I would remind myself not to latch the door and waited for her to come home. It went on for about a month and eventually I got used to the new routine of putting the latch on. You, too, will get used to the new routine as the days go by. Hugs.

My parents divorced when I was 13, it was very hard for me I live with my dad now. My mom works 24/7 and when she isn't working she is sleeping so she can wake up early...for work. I sometimes feel like i have one parent but i know m mom loves me and tries to be there for me, but talkng on the phone yes it is weird trust me it will be easier and youll get used to it in a few months.Good luck and i hope you have fun with your dad.

I've never been close to my mum and i haven't lived with her since i was 15, we never got on and i was glad to move out, i moved in with my dad and i had the best time, he was so laid back and fun, i miss living with him. i moved out when i was 17 and have been living with my fiance for the past 3 years, i see my dad every weekend and we email all the time, its still strange but its nice growing up and doing it on my own

So, it was her that moved out? Not you? I lived at home until I got married (even though I did have to pay rent). I got married last summer, at 23. So, it was a change for me also, but it tends to bring the whole family, I believe, closer together. Because it makes us miss each other more. I hope that both of you are doing well, and stay close, good luck.
