An amazing week, hard work rewarded and tickets for a festival that could have been made for him, all his favourite bands in one venue ( apart from Muse but he has tickets to see them in September )
He set off, early this morning with a huge back-pack stuffed with junk food, wellies and water proofs .. it's pouring down here and has been for days.
Last minute panic of too small tent, had no solution, so it will be cosy for 8 large lads plus gear !
Life and all it's lessons.
He is spreading his wings, testing them and finding them up to the task of flying, soaring, catching some warm currents to take him onto new adventures.
While, this Mama feels excited for him, there is also some knots of worry, some concern, the need to chase him back into the nest and hold him closer, tighter, just for a little while longer.
He is our firstborn, the first time N & I saw our love made visible, all of our hopes, dreams and promises in one 8lb bundle of joy.
He teaches us, tests us and makes us find resources we had no idea we had.
I have learnt so much about myself because of him.
He has my heart, now and always.
So,I blow my nose, wipe my teary eyes and await the stinky, muddy piles of washing he will bring home with a good stock pile of wash powder !
