Mum cooking

My son started uni this year.  Thanks to social media life is pretty much as it was when he lived here.  We communicate as if he were in the house…that is , by text!.

The main differences are his room is clean and there are no dirty boxer shorts on my bathroom floor!

It’s not that I don’t miss him.  I do .  It’s more of a feeling that he’s very much still here.  After all, as they get older they tend to start preparing you for their flight from home by staying at mates/girlfriends house or going on holiday without you.  So I’m used to him not being in the house.  And I’m used to communicating with him over Facebook.

He however is less used to living on his own.  His absences from here generally coincided with him being in a home with another dad/mum…. cook!

He’s missing some mum-made grub.  That means I’ll probably get a home visit soon and so shall start batch cooking shortly so I can load him up with goodies to take back.

I’m glad he’s missing me.  we mum’s like to know that!

Rose Tinted Ramblings

I'm Bernice but unless I'm in trouble, it's Berni. I laugh heartily; love wholely and live completely. I write what I think. Sometimes its fun, sometimes its political, sometimes its frustration, or angst. Always its real and heartfelt. I now live in Mid Wales having found a home with my family (John, my parner and Jason, our son) here in Llanwrtyd Wells where everyday eccentricity is celebrated. a place in the UK that attracts those from outside the mainstream and has created an identity based on its quirkiness. A perfect home for someone like me who tends not to follow the crowd, doesn't have a quiet laugh, and tends to speak first, think later! Life has reached a juncture where I have become aware that when you live your life through rose-tinted spectacles, every experience becomes one including joy, laughter, friends, meetings, experiences and great memories. Having always fancied being a columnist I figured why not share my rose-tinted ramblings with anyone out there who might want to listen- and if no-ones out there, why not write them anyway - bit like a public diary - but hey I have no dirty little secrets that I'm not prepared to share....!!!!

  1. My children are much younger, it’s strange to think that they’ll be heading off to Uni one day! I’m starting them off young learning to cook but as there’s nothing quite like a meal made by mum I can imagine me making the odd meal for them when they move on. Thanks for linking up with #Thesatsesh
