Hello my darlings, for the first time my 3 daughters have left the nest to follow their dreams and it has felt a little empty , quiet and even a little glum. Daughter no.1 has been left a while and sent me the most beautiful bouquet of yellow roses. At least she hasn’t forgotten me. Daughter no.2 left for 3 months on Sunday and no.3 left this morning but shall return after a short trip to Scotland. It won’t be long before they have all left entirely. One has been feeling decidedly sorry for oneself.
