So what do I miss about Son2 now he’s moved out?
His laundry – well make that his ironing ‘cos his washing machine doesn’t work at the moment
His untidy bedroom – I now have a beautifully tidy spare room, all guests welcomed!
We use less toilet roll – what the hell did he used to do with it?
The bathroom is so tidy with his shaving stuff and hair gel gone
We get through less cereal – he had a huge bowl full most evenings
The unpredictability of his moods – especially first thing in the morning
Hearing about his day and the tales of his clients while we eat our dinner
Wondering what time he’ll be home when he goes out (although I now don’t know if I need to worry or not)
His quirky sense of humour
Mmmm – bit of a mixed bag really. I do miss him, possibly more that I missed Son 1 when he moved out but that’s probably because we still had Son 2 here. I think the strangest thing is probably preparing meals – and buying two people sized packs of things! I thought I’d got plenty in the freezer the other day only to find I have chicken galore in big packs – I need to take a leaf out of Janet’s book and make up meals to freeze, if only I could be bothered!!
As I write this he has gone to football with John – the last day of the seemingly endless Christmas break this year (although I did work Wednesday & Thursday last week) – when he comes back we’ll need his strength to help put the Christmas decorations in the loft, I knew he’d be useful for something!!
