Feeling better

My back pain has subsided, thank goodness. It was a portent of things to come I think, as age starts to wear down the body.
It's not just my back that reminds me of the passing of time. Mostly it's that the kids. Jack has finished school and is embarking upon the next chapter of his life-as a student at Edinburgh University. It's fresher's week, and tonight he is out at a freshers do. It makes me feel very old when he talks about Uni, rather than school.
So it's fitting that today I post this layout, which was done a couple of months ago for The Scrapbook Magazine.

And yes, I really do have the same feelings as I did when he started school all those years ago. In some ways I am even more anxious for him. At least school was a structured, and pretty secure environment, where he was known to the teachers. He is on his own at University and he really will sink or swim. Let's hope it's the latter!

Wasn't he cute ...not that he isn't still ...... but wouldn't want to be called that lol. Each stage of their life is a worry ... and it never changes.
Great LO ... where did the notes and keyboard come from ... love the the story it tells.

I am sure he will love his time at Edinburgh uni although it is rather different to school. Fab layout and sentiments.
