So, my baby has flown the nest. Very hard to let her go, but I know it is the best thing for her. She was so brave this afternoon when we left her. She has been so nervous - in fact she has been terrified (her own words!). It was lovely to have a phone call from her this evening to say that she had made a friend. Having Aspergers, she finds it extremely difficult to interact with others, but the fact that she is sharing a house with other young people with the same condition has obviously helped. Tomorrow is her first day at college and I am looking forward to hearing from her all about her induction day and what her timetable is like.
Very soon I will have a completely empty nest, as on Saturday Ben returns to uni in Plymouth. We spent a few hours last week helping him to get his studio flat ready for his return on Saturday. It is going to be very strange in our house in a week's time!
I will leave you with a photo of Penny sitting in her new bedroom
