I knew a couple who sold their house and bought a ONE bedroom flat so their two children would never come and stay! I was quite horrified at that I must

Same here Buttercup. I love my kids even more now that they have left home!

The best thing about being only 2 of us is that my hubby can't blame the kids anymore! I know that if I didn't do it, he did!!

Had better not tell Tiddler you are going next door she will want to come with you, have letters for Ryan all over the house with loads of kisses on them.

Found a piece of paper yesterday that said NC 4 KE and under it in her writing it said ZC 4 RA, besoted with him she is apart from Kieron who is just for Fridays.

I have one still at home (28 years old), one flown...but may come back as she and partner have just split leaving her to pay mortgage alone as well as give him a pay off.

Much as I love 'em, I have reached the age (58) where I don't want to be looking after other people, feeding em, doing laundry and clearing up.

Does that sound selfish?
