Last night was Stevie's College presentation night, she is now a fully fledged Nursery Nurse :-)
It was a shame that more people didn't turn up to formally receive their certificates, there must have been only around 30 students. The ones that didn't attend missed out on a lovely meal which was served to us by the catering students, a bunch of flowers and a balloon!

My baby is all grown up now :-(
She has now started her degree course at Worcester uni, (she wants to go into teaching eventually), although she is not too far from home, she is still away from home, the house is quiet, very quiet, I'm used to boom boom music wafting down from her bedroom and clothes and make-up and bags and shoes littering the house - it's all very strange this empty nest thing, with Mark working away from home too for the first time I am totally on my own in the evening.
The first night my mum phoned me to make sure I was OK and to 'make sure i locked the doors' , (yes i had).
The second night she phoned me to ask if i'd been OK on my own and had i been frightened ? No mum, I'm fine, I told her, I didn't like to remind her that I was 50 years old, lol, it was sweet of her to think of me - I guess you never stop being a mum :-)
