A new Adventure begins..........

Today my daughter Emily starts her 3 year degree working with young children and young people at Kingston Upon Thames University. So proud of her as she got top grades in her recent exams to gain her place. Saturday we packed the car, it was jammed packed we couldn't get nothing else in and headed off to Kingston. Pleased to say the Uni is in a lovely area of Surrey and only 9 miles from London City centre, so an excuse for a visit to have a girlie day shopping in London! She has halls on campus and has a two minute walk to lectures etc. We helped her unpack alot of her stuff and then took a visit to the local Asda, which was a two minute car journey up the road................well would of been if we hadn't missed the turn off, got stuck in traffic and was about 5 miles out of London before we could turn off and turn round.....ha, one stressy husband. Fresh food shop done, Emily would no be ok for at least a couple of weeks food wise. She's now got to learn to cook and use a washing machine and iron. LOL.
This week I will get in her bedroom and give it a good clean and know it will stay that way until Christmas when she comes home.! We will miss her.

Oh I recall that empty home situation well but they are soon back and so grown up and independant, it is so good for them, its just us that are left behind that feel the gap.
