Well, DS set off for Croatia tonight - away for a week, 2 days at home, then off to Uni. Guess he's trying to break me in gently to the "empty nest".
The mood he was in tonight I'm not going to miss him!
Talk about trying to teach your grandmother to suck eggs!
Looking back, not only was I going on long coach trips at his age (I lived in the NE so had to travel for hours to London before moving on) I was living in France doing my year abroad ....you'd think this meant I knew what I was talking about .... but no! Wasn't even allowed to help with the packing - now, everyone knows that women do this better, squeezing things into impossible spaces so as to get that all important, totally unnecessary item in - but not my son!
Even my farewell call of "Don't do anything I wouldn't do.." (which, let's face it gives him pretty much free rein- short of GBH and murder) was met with just a grunt.
My craft room is about to become a reality!!lol
