This time next year I will be sat here as an official empty nester! My baby boy is already away in Scotland and has been for 4 years now, and next October my baby girl will be settling herself into her new home at the university of her choice!
There will just be me and him in the house. For the first time in 22 years we’ll have only each other to talk to.
The end of this stage of this wild ride of parenthood. No more homework assistance needed, no more mum taxi to and from ballet or rugby or parties. No more nagging about laundry or leaving the hair straighteners on!
