Today should have been the first day of my 'empty nest'. Both of my sons have successfully gone off to university. This is an achievement that I have been aiming for and working towards for the last 21 years. Well, maybe not the exact goal of university but the aim that 21 years after your first child is born and 18.5 years after the second then they would both be able to live away from home if they wanted to.
So far so good but the only thing is that I have left home too, to go and work at Edinburgh University. So the empty nest still exists at home but I'm not in it all the time.
It has meant that lots of things have changed and I'm not sure how it's going to work out. At the moment everyone is good, apart from the cat is disgruntled as she has had to go to live at my Mum's and just come home some weekends.
