On taking my Daughter to University
So, one down, and one to go. Sam has just started 6th Form College, as did Tash three years before him. And guess what - it's a completely different experience for and with him than it was for Tash! Good, but different. So, we're flexing here! Again! Sam's still living with us while Tash is now living away, and we all have much to learn from each other before he sets off on his adult journey - I'm relishing the thought.
Many different books have been written about parenting. There's probably a book just in Mandy's and my experience of being and learning to be parents. But it's our story - a never-ending story - and we're too busy and engaged in living it to write it down and share it. Except this blog, of course.
To conclude, I'll just quote you from the text message I sent Mandy as I left Tash to drive back to Brighton yesterday evening - "7:20 Just leaving now. Choked. Nx"
