All my threads sink without trace but I wondered what the upside for you or the kids pushing off back to uni?

For me, right now ,it's the satisfaction of knowing the bathroom is properly clean, the bath is sparkling and scum free, an I shall be the first to use it tomorrow - simple pleasures smile

( dd1 has been cleaning it, not very well but willingly , and using the bath and my bath stuff!)

mumbles that is absolutely fab! A great reminder of why we have to let them go. DD1 is the same. Loving the whole package- yes the social life and getting away from home but also looking forward to lectures starting next week.
