This is a pic of Kathryn and her Dad last year at my sisters wedding. Mark took 'K' to Worcester Uni yesterday and helped her settle in. I am rather weepy at the mo! but she has achieved what I always hoped for her. I want her to have a better life than I did, always working in crummy shops etc. The place is very, very quiet without her and she will be greatly missed but she has now started 'the next day of the rest of her life' I am so proud of her.

Meet Sassy, Kathryns cat:-
now normally cats are very fickle as to who they like and dislike, but not Sassy, she has been Kathryns cat from the beginning. Whilst K was at college (she was out of the house from 7am - 7pm) she became friendly with me but always reverted to Kathryn when she was in. The last 2 weeks Kathryn has been at home alot and Sassy has been joined to her at the hip! Whilst all the packing was going on Sassy was in all the bags, boxes and carrier bags (a favourite hiding place of hers). She did not want Kathryn to get up on the Saturday and did everything in her power to get in the way! Once K had left Sassy settled down on a chair in her room and has hardly moved! I go in and chat, she will come round I'm sure!

The 'empty nest' syndrome will soon pass - and I can relate to a quiet home.

Kathryn is only a phone call away - and in next to no time she will be back for the holidays.

It takes a bit of getting used too - just like their first day at school - another gut wrenching time.

Best wishes

I REMEMBER GOING TO UNIVERSITY FOR THE FIRST TIME, IT IS AN ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL PHASE OF A LIFETIME!

Education is a wonderful tool chuck, it is the passport to a world of opportunity, excitement and choice!

Well Done you!

When she was getting in the car ready to leave with her dad I said 'this is the first day of the rest of your life'. I know she will be fine, I am so proud of her.
