Teenager is now on holiday for Easter. He won't go back to school in England until the end of June. As some of you longstanding readers will know, he is off to Melbourne for ten weeks on school exchange.
I am managing my nerves admirably ( on the surface).
He is very excited and can't wait to start his new adventure.
We have brought him up to be confident, independent and travel loving.
Guess what- we got our wish!
So this weekend we are going over to see other half's folks in the North East. Teenager's au revoir tour perhaps before the summer. Teenager will see his cousins. Here is a picture of him with one of them last summer taken by my lovely sister in law D. As you can see they have very similiar colouring. They get on really well. If they are not wrestling, or playing with a ball, they are on the X box. Teenagers eh?
In true masochistic fashion, we are going to watch the Toon Army play Chelsea at St James' Park. We are going to pay to do this. Madness. It will be interesting to see the Chelsea players.... I will see them when I occasionally open my eyes during all the prayers....
Update tomorrow on tonight's official weigh in.... fingers crossed pleased.
