Big Sis has finished her first year at Kings. Although we were partly prepared for her to find a job in London over the Summer, part of us also hoped that she might be able to return and fill our home with the usual mess, noise and fun that she brings with her. She has found a flat with some good friends and this weekend returned home to pick up some bits and pieces to make it more homely. We potted on herbs, shopped for pans and bought an old writing table for her room. Her excitement was infectious. She asked if I could make some bunting for their very grand sounding 'roof terrace' so on Friday night we spent a happy couple of hours cutting, stitching and chatting and brought her bunting to life. Yesterday we packed up the car and Mr K drove her back to the Big Smoke. Whilst it was hard seeing her go in September each time she leaves it gets a little harder - a little bit more permanent - and yet so wonderful that she is out there, developing into a brilliant independent young woman. Bye bye bunting - we'll miss you.
