    One of my daughters has just told me that she has a boyfriend/partner and they are going to set up home together.
    He sounds nice.
    I didn't see it coming .

    OMG I feel old!!!

    How long have they been together Giraffe? Surely you knew she had a boyfriend if its gone that far. I do know what you mean tho - my eldest is likely to be getting married next year (her boyf came to tell me he is proposing next month ). I felt ancient hearing that.

    Don't feel old!
    I'm 60 this year and it's tempting to think about the negative side of this but I'm so aware I'm still so young compared with my 88 year old mother. You're probably barely grown up yet!! I don't think I really grew up till I was in my 50's - for the first time I began to trust my own judgement. Now I think I am mature - finally; haven't done anything really stupid for a while at any rate.
    Hope your offspring is really happy.

  8. Don't worry! Accepting they are moving on should be a liberation, even if it doesn't feel like it.
    My son was off back to Uni after a weekend at home yesterday, and for some reason it came up in conversation that I was glad he wasn't hung up on a girlfriend just yet.
    "Yes I am" came the reply: her name is Sinita and she's from the USA.
    I have now recovered!!!! Images of a certain pop star fully fulfilled.
