What an emotional rollercoaster this weekend is turning out to be, yesterday we took Dan t Nottingham to start his University journey for the next 4 years of his life. I have been fine all the way through his preparations for Uni, until Saturday morning when his stuff was being loaded into the car, I took one look in the mirror & suddenly it hit me like a tidal wave that I had a son going to Uni. I am so amazingly proud of Dan.
I did manage to pull myself together for the rest of the day & took him shopping in Tesco for his first food shop & kept reminding him to look for the BOGOF offers & make the most of his money. I am lucky as both my children can cook properly. After we went back to his accommodation we unpacked the food & as we came out of the kitchen another Mum was leaving her son & breaking her heart, that was it the tears started again.
Well I survived the emotional day & Dan ended up with a very soggy shoulder. But he is settling in well & I am sure that he will make the most of the amazing opportunity.
Well the nest is a little emptier today, but we have a very busy day as I am taking a coach load of crafters from Norwich down to Alexandra palace in London for the big Stamping & scrapbooking show.
Well the picnic is packed and with my chipboard in hand I am off to meet the coach and the crafty ladies eager for some stash shopping.
