Hi fairydust. I can't really relate as my dcs are still tiny but didn't want to leave you unanswered.
Could you take the opportunity to do something for you? Club / volunteering / hobby? Sorry not to be any help.

Try your MN local page.

Might be something of interest on there?

Yes I can definately relate to what you're saying. Both my children left for boarding school when they got to 15. It was awful for me.

Three years on and I still miss them very much. I found it very hard to know how to fill the gaping void left in me.

Food took up quite a bit of space before I could get on to better choices.

I wish you well and do encourage to continue reaching out towards others.

Good luck to you smile.
