Things I Didn't Want to Read in my Student Son's Email

1) The cleaners left a notice in our kitchen. It said that they had been unable to clean it, due to the amount of dirty washing up and empty beer cans left lying around. If we did not clear everything up, they would confiscate the dirty pots and pans etc, and we would have to pay to get them back.

2) It took us ages to do the shopping, today. There's so many students round here that some of the shops had sold out of alcohol. We had to try loads of shops before we could get the brand that we wanted.

3) We've had to move all of the food out of the 'fridge to make room for the alcohol.

4)After a few seconds, I realised that he was probably joking. He was joking, wasn't he?

If he's anything like I was in my student days, no.

Well, at least he's not going to be dehydrated with all that liquid intake!

I have really enjoyed reading your blog. You sound like you are doing brilliantly with you children gradually moving away. well done you! :-)

Hi wakeup. Thanks for coming. Unfortunately, I think you are right. I can only hope that he manages to squeeze in a few lectures, between his social events!

Hi debra. Glad you found me. It was a bit unsettling when student son came home, last weekend, but I was OK by Monday. I still can't get used to the difference in the weeklly food bill, since he has gone. It's amazing!
