One of my daughters and her family live just round the corner , when their twins were born sixteen and a half years ago I started looking after them one day a week...and have continued to do so until July this year when my 'girlies' left school after taking their GCSE exams. They are on week three of a four week National Citizenship Service, home at weekends before off to College in September.
It is 'all change' in their household as my daughter is also returning to University. Am so used to them coming for tea after school Fridays and they haven't been since July.... and am missing them far more than I thought I would...it is 'empty nest syndrome' all over again!
They are I suppose, by today's standards rather 'old fashioned'...ie they don't dress in tarty clothes or obsess constantly about boys, celebrities,hair and makeup. Thankfully they are both rather 'bookish'.
All this change is as it should be, and of course they should be going out into the world and I know how blessed I have been with having them visit so often ....but........ oh dear.
Any advice ?
