Flying The Nest

Yesterday marks 2 years since we picked up the keys to our first home together and 2 years since I flew the nest! Today marks 2 years since we officially moved in together.

I still remember all those feelings of excitement, happiness and reluctance. I was so excited to start this new journey into adulthood, happy because I finally had something to show for working all those hours and reluctant to leave my Mum and my family home behind.

Even now I get home sick. I didn’t think I did until the other night when I was putting Scarlett to bed and I thought of my Mum putting me to bed. I couldn’t go to sleep without my Mum coming in and kissing me goodnight and she would always say the same thing. “Nunight, see you in the morning, love you lots!” I haven’t heard this said in such a long time and its the small things like this that I miss.

I would not change Scarlett for the world but sometimes I miss my pre-baby days. Mainly the freedom I had and the lack of responsibility. But then Scarlett only has to look at me and I know that she is the best thing to have ever come of my life!

How did you feel when you flew the nest? Did you move straight in with a partner or did you live alone?

    Wow where did that time go? Look at what you've achieved in the last two years Amy, you should be really proud. You're an amazing mummy and Scarlett adores you. It was always us four against the world, no matter what and some of the happiest times of my life were spent with you and your sisters. Now the dynamics of our relationship has changed, for the better I think, and I feel closer to you than before with the added bonus of my gorgeous little granddaughter. Love you loads Amy xxxxxxxxxxx
