Another Day Of Packing!!

Tomorrow is the day I think I have been dreading, we take Jack to drop him off to Uni and then there will be only John and myself at home. How do you cook for just two? What do you talk about when the kids have gone? I'm sure we'll both get used to it but it will take a while.

Last night I went through my stash and found some brown and cream suede material, Jack's bed linen is brown and cream and I wanted to have a few cushion to match, (I looked in town but they were too girly). I decided to try a Union Jack design like I did for Soph. I was quite pleased with the result, think Jack liked it too but lads never say much when you ask them do they!

Well off to pack his food up now, can't have him going hungry can we!

They've all flown the nest now!

Sophie's new room

Yesterday we had to drop off Sophie at Birmingham Uni. She was sooo excited about her new adventure (just like when we used to go on holiday when they were little she had been counting down how many sleeps left before she went!).
When we walked into her room I thought oh my God how are we going to fit all this in such a small space (she took enough clothes to dress an army), but eventually we did and it looked lovely.
I'm going to miss her, she's been at home now since May. Today the house seemed so quiet, and this weekend Jack's going back to uni too!
