Tweens, Teens & Beyond #20

Tweens, Teens & Beyond #20

Good Morning and welcome back to another week of linky Tweens, Teens & Beyond hosted by myself and fellow bloggers Sharon at After The Playground and Nicky at Not Just The Three Of Us.

I hope you have all settled back into some form of normality after the holidays.  Our household is now minus a teenager, well for 32 weeks of the year anyway, as our eldest left for university this weekend.  The drive was long and the motorway rammed with cars stuffed with teary parents and lots of bags.  48 hours later and so far so good.  He is having a ball and we are getting used to it just being the three of us, unless my youngest does manage to persuade us to finally get her a pet that is.

It was good to see some familiar faces linking last week and to see repeat visits from some relative newcomers.  Our favourite post of last week was the one from Kelly at Daydreams of a Mum.  Kelly has shared her thoughts with us over the last few months of link-ups about how it feels when the kids are growing up and away from you.  It can be a bit daunting to say the least but Kelly has cracked on and up and ‘found herself’ in a theatre in Edinburgh.  It turns out she was there all along!  It’s a great post so if you missed it, do pop over for a read.

Please take some time to read the rules below before linking and please remember the golden rule of blogging is to share the linky love and remember to comment.

We look forward to reading your posts.

    Hope it wasn’t too difficult for you saying goodbye…You brave lady! I think I would have pushed my husband out at the other end and just driven back home with my boy! x

      Actually it wasn’t as bad as I anticipated or rather I wasn’t as bad as my husband was expecting. To be honest we have spent 18 years preparing for this moment and it is definitely the right time for him to move on to the next stage. x
