Off To Uni : The Wednesday Blog Hop..

In a few weeks my 2nd son will leave home and go off to uni.


Does it get any easier when the 2nd one goes, I ask myself!?!


I was so upset when my first son went to uni 2 years ago, I even wrote a piece in the Nottingham Post.


Last Thursdays he got his exam results.

He did great.

3A’s in business chemistry and biology.

Also got offered a place at the uni he wanted on the same day. What a day.


Another one to soon fly the nest. I am just hoping I am not so upset I will be crying in the street again, like I did when my eldest went!?!

Bet I will though..

    You look young enough to be going off to college yourself, much less have a second son!
