Slipping away......

My daughter is starting to get ready to return to University. Talk of Dissertation subjects, rent for the new house,
how the last two years seem to have flown by. As happy as I am that she is returning to a City she loves, to share a house with great mates, studying a subject she enjoys, I can hear that little voice in my head reminding me that once this new term is done, she will have finished Uni., and the inevitable next step will probably be, if the Fates are kind and she gets a job, moving away from home..................................................................

And that will be that.
Sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

You never lose them... they always come back. ;-)

Aw... sad.... I don't even like mine going to a friend's for a sleepover, let alone moving away to Uni, let alone leaving proper *big sad sigh*

I'm glad we're a few years away from that, although there are moments when it can't come soon enough!!

how did those years go by so fast? She was a baby in my arms, I turned away for a second and when I looked again she was grown up.

This will be upon me before I know it. Rory starts Sixth Form this week so already we are starting to think about Uni. Where is your daughter studying? Just being nosey as I'm trying to get an idea about places and can't think whether you've mentioned it in other posts.

Everyone told me this - that as soon as a child goes to High School, the years go so quickly it is amazing. I can't even imagine them at University!

When you think of your daughter moving away, also think of the women who never had a daughter. You have been blessed! 8-)

Trish...Liverpool university....She decided NOT to go to 'Oxbridge' as she wanted to go to the City her Grandpa came from.... a bright girl but stubborn...and having a whale of a time......
Steve...my heart would be forever broken if I thought my girl would ever not be in my life in some way..

I'm permanently sad because my daughter is in London. So far away. She comes home every month but this almost makes it worse, since I'm reminded how lovely she is. (Just trying to cheer you up...!)
