Number One Son is now settling in at Uni.
We made the journey up there in good time to be welcomed my other members of his college (the nerdy one) who were eager to help him collect his key and find his room.
Then we unloaded his stuff and he set up his PC while I made his bed and unpacked some of the basics. He has got a great room with ensuite shower room and toilet. He shares his kitchen with 3 others which should be no real problem. If he decides not to cook there are plenty of places on campus where he can grab something to eat - they seem to have the whole range of take away food covered, including a place that he found selling 14" pizzas for around half the price Dominoes etc. I am guessing that is what he ate last night.
His freshers week seems to be very full-on - loads of events planned to get everyone settled in. Hoping that this prevents him feeling too homesick or lonely - but I am sure he will be fine really, he is happy with his own company and can find socialising very tiring!
He now has internet in his room and Mrs RC has had a Skype chat with him already - I think she feels better about things herself, now. He is, after all, still her baby.
The journey back was not as smooth as the journey there - congestion and heavy rain made parts of the 320 mile trip very sluggish. The road signs were rather optimistic too...
No faster than 50? Really? At this point we could have walked faster!
But we were back home by 9pm, including a stop for leg stretching, coffee and hot chocolate, so it could have been worse.
So now there are 2 kids at home - until Christmas, anyway, which will be here before we really know it I am sure!
