Three.

I won't be around for a couple of days. Staff off on holiday combined with staff phoning in sick has put paid to that. I have my suspicions but I shall leave it at that for now!

Mike has gone to pick Rob up from uni, how that lovely boy of ours has enjoyed his time at uni. He has had an absolute blast & I feel just so sad it's finished for him. Rob no doubt is happy knowing he will be back in time to go the local & catch up with the the regulars who adore him too!

I recall listening to an advert jingle tune before Rob went to uni. It was one of those happy inspiring sort of tune & with motherly concern, hope & prayers wished that he would enjoy his degree.

He did & more. He has met & bonded with people who will be friends for life & has had some fantastic experiences.

So there you go, three years & three hours away. Over!

More threes -
Three citrus patio fruit trees. Lime, lemon & orange. the Lime was a free offer from Grow your own magazine. You know free if you pay the postage. As it was over a fiver I thought it was rather expensive postage so to make better use of the offer I erm ordered the orange & lemon too.  I'm sure in three years I shall have some fruit to harvest from them :)

Final three

My new asparagus patch of course! That will be ready to harvest from. Also Harry will be picking which A-Levels to study.

Back on Tuesday my dears, as always have fun & watch the time doesn't fly too quickly for you x

  2. Well done Rob, the end of an era! I'm wishing him happiness and success with the next thing, whatever it may be. I saw the lime offer as well. Not bad, they're usually expensive. I love citrus plants, I've only got tiny cuttings at the moment though, my big one died for no apparent reason. I hope you have a good weekend, work notwithstanding. CJ xx

  3. I was at uni with Tony Blair, but we didn't become lifelong friends! :-) What has your Rob chosen as his career from here on in?

  6. Well done to your Son. Wishing him good luck with his future endeavours.

    Citrus plants.....wonderful. Will look beautiful in years to come.

    Asparagus is one of my favourite vegetables. Fleeting though it is.
    I used to grow it in my previous garden....problems was I had a dog who loved it too......she always seem to eat far more than I did :)

  8. I remember you taking Rob to uni three years ago and looking out of his window and seeing the sea, time flies, doesn't it. Daniel's got one year left, he's loving it but we're just starting with Eleanor now. She's at an open day with Mick today actually. She'll go just as Daniel finishes, unless he stays on for four years and then I'll have two of them there together.

  13. i took up that cirtus offer as well, they are small in comparison to my others but over time I hope they catch up, regular cirtus feed and rain water is what they need and dont rush to pot them up :-)

  14. What are your suspicions? French Open tennis proved too irresistible? A quick jaunt to the Euro final to support Barcelona? Or somebody with a bad case of CBA* syndrome?



    (*CBA stands for Can't be *rsed )

  17. I bet those three years have flown! I'm looking forward to seeing your asparagus and citrus trees taking off....I know from my mother-in-law that the lemons she grows taste unlike any shop bought lemons. X

  19. Hey buddy! I'm sorry I have been late to visiting...my little bean has been sick so I am just getting some time now to get caught up. A big congrats to your son! How wonderful that he has had this time to grow and make outstanding connections that he will carry with him through his life! And look at those citrus trees up there! Just so cool! Here is to an outstanding week ahead! Nicole xo

  20. A mad cap weekend has led to lots of blog catching up. Time really does fly, doesn't it? Sam is already halfway through his A Levels exams, and then to Liverpool (hopefully). I hope that he has a great a time as your son did. It's all I wish for him really. I hope too that the sickness was real and not imagined ;))

  21. When they set off for Uni the three years seems such a long time to be without them, but it actually flies by so quickly, thank goodness. My youngest went back to do his Masters after a working break and then never came home, making his life in Preston which he loved. STill he's not to far away.

    I got the free Lime tree too, it's doing really well now.

  22. Time is very much flying too quickly! We grew a lemon pip - actually three - into plants. Can't call them trees yet but they're still growing.

  23. Well done to your son, the uni years fly by in the end. I love the patio citrus plants, we have a lime tree which can't seem to make up its mind whether to fruit or not. Looking forward to seeing Asparagus progress!

  24. It is so good to hear that your son really enjoyed his time at uni, and will always have those wonderful memories and lifelong friends. (It does go by so fast though!) I love the idea of growing citrus plants....maybe next year....
    Happy weekend.

  26. Lately I feel as if every year flies by ... perhaps time really does go faster as we age ... I mean, how is it nearly midsummer already?

    Good luck to both your boys in all that comes next for them :)

  29. Time flies by so quickly doesn't it! I've got my son home again for the hols after his first year. He's so grown up now, off travelling with his friends this summer and busy earning the money to go. We've reached a nice stage where I'm happy to have him home (despite the mess and extra chores!) and equally happy for him to be off again, knowing that he's enjoying life. When they grow up happy, you know you've done a good job! Hope your working weekend wasn't too stressful, Jo. Sounds like you're the one that could do with a break!
