Well, eldest has moved to Sheffield to start his degree. I feel upset he's not here, nervous for him for all that is to come but, most of all, immense pride at being his father. I love you, son. ❤️

@andy make a checklist of all the stupid things you did at his age and gradually check it off as the year goes by

@moopet Thanks for the giggle I needed that. To be fair to him, he's done most of them already. It's why I know he'll be okay. 😂

@andy it sounds like he's got a good family to fall back on then :)

It’s always hard to let our children go out on their own. I’m impressed by your courage and your Son is too even if he doesn’t say it.
