Maybe This Place Is Just Too Small?

Ready to say 'Goodbye'Image by Klearchos Kapoutsis via Flickr
Has it ever occurred to you that maybe you're not too big? That maybe this place is just too small?

Everyone gathered at my parents this evening, with the obvious exception, as they hosted a farewell party for mine and my partner's departure to Leeds Metropolitan University. I can't be too hard on my brother though as he called to inform that he was late because he was still working in North London. It would have been good to see his face before I head up the M1, he promised to make an appearance at Bexleyheath later in the evening but he didn't show. The party went well, although at times my father appeared to be erratic, maybe he was hiding the fact that he's struggling to handle that I'm leaving home! For the third time!!

I know I'm going to miss everyone, especially the children who are full of questions and still trying to understand why I'm going to university. The night went on longer than intended, which meant that the children were returned home late and that didn't go down too well with their mother. Her response was that I wouldn't be able to see them tomorrow. Not good, but hopefully just a reaction! Afterwards we travelled to Whetherspoons, here we met several friends and said our goodbyes. The original plan was to relive last week at the Indie bar but we were settled in Whetherspoons and we were able to talk instead of shout over the music. My sister was popular with the boys, shame that most of them had girlfriends right?!
