Last Sunday was a very sad day for me as my girl moved out of home and has moved out into the big wide world on her own to learn to be independant. I guess I should be happy as I did manage to have her at home for her 21 years but it was very hard to cope with. We have always had a very close relationship and when she moved out it felt like I was losing my best friend. I know we will still see each other regularly (I have the most amazing craft room that she will miss) but I had so many emotions going on like no longer being needed and my role as a mother had finished. Probably silly I know but I assume this is what they call the empty nest syndrome.
