Sometimes, as you get to a certain age, you realise that life is moving on.
My world seems pretty static, I’m single, kids now 28, 27 and 20 and only the youngest is still with me.
Most of the time, nothing really changes, I go to work, go home, eat dinner, play piano, watch tv, fall asleep on sofa, repeat.
It’s Friday and I’ve just did my latest invoice for the company who currently employs my service.
That’s a straight 34 weeks I’ve worked without a break, that pretty bad .. huh.
In August, I was hoping for a family holiday, I was picking up the tab, but the kids all have busy life’s and partners/boyfriends/girlfriend ( delete as necessary)
Trying to get them all to agree to a week or two in the sun at the same time just wasn’t happening.
So unfortunately I didn’t get away and I’m missing the sunshine no my bones.
But I digress, life is moving on whether I like it or not.
The kids considering their partners more than their dad was inevitable, it’s part of life but it still hurts when they don’t want a family holiday.
Today my elder daughter Laura moves into her new house with her boyfriend, a 4 bedroom detached in a rural area.
A nurse and a police officer, how conventional is that?
But they are happy and I’m proud of them both and how close they are and how far they have come in life.
You might ask, why a 4-bedroom house for just the two of them?
I did too.
But the answer is pretty obvious.
Life is moving on and I’m hopeful.
Have a good weekend whatever you’re doing.
