Have had a lovely weekend, but it is over too soon. We went to see our son at Hull where he is at university to celebrate his 21st birthday. It doesn’t seem 5 minutes since he was a baby. Where have the past 21 years gone? Looking back I can remember vividly his milestones: the first tooth, the first steps, the first word. He has achieved so much in 21 years and I am incredibly proud of him.
As for me – what have the past 21 years brought me? An honours degree, a change of career to become a teacher, my first novels. Not bad!
So, as my son prepares for the end of his university career and the beginning of his working life, I am also looking forward to my next steps – where ever they may lead.
