Well, he's gone!

SofM is now safely ensconsed at Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh........... and I cried all the way down the M8 and A74.........and I could still cry now but I am trying hard not too as I'll end up with a migraine!

All that's left at home, of him, is a load of dust bunnies under the furniture and bits & pieces he didn't want with him.

I know he'll be fine but I am worried he won't eat properly and he won't settle down and work, because he needs to if he wants to pass his degree. I'm sure I'm worrying unnecessarily but that's what us Mothers do, isn't it?

But you know you are right, he probably won't eat properly and he may well drink a little too much on occasion and,, he may take a while to settle into his studies,,..

But, He Will REALLY love home cooking and his Mum when he comes to visit.

hugs to you

Its always hard letting them go and somehow worse when you 'leave them behind' ! I am sure he will do you proud though!! Luv...AJ

Don't worry. He'll be back in no time with a large pile of washing for you to do.

Love and hugs Gina xxx

I'm sure it'll be a fantastic learning curve for your son, and he'll enjoy every minute of his new life.

I know it's hard (the worst for me was leaving my youngest (my son) at his London uni, and knowing that it was the end of an era - ie all my kids have left home. I cried for a bit, and then Igor whacked me round the head.

I've been miserable on and off all day today (08/09/08) but I'm beginning to get used to the idea. DD is also a bit miserable without him too. The Oh! Bearded One is just carring on as usual as is his want!!!

My heart goes out to you. I suppose it's a process we all have to go through but it still hurts to let them go.

You wonder if you did all you could do to prepare them and then you have to leave the rest up to them and God.

Sending hugs your way.

I felt sad when my son left home permanently. I was glad and happy that he had found the "right one" for him at last but sad not to have him messing up the house with dirty clothes, empty coke cans, half eaten food cartons and filling the garage with motor bikes.
After 5 yrs my house is tidier but there is still someone missing.

Oh dear. All part of growing up I suppose - for the mothers if not for the sons! I am a couple of years away from this scenario and although I complain about him, I will definitely miss my lad when he leaves home!
