This weekend is unusual in that we have both chicks in the nest at the same time. Son chick is home from uni for a couple of weeks and daughter chick is home too. Not for long though! She will be moving into a flat with her boyfriend on Monday and our house is becoming a depositary for boxes, clothes and flat pack furniture – you should see the state of our landing and garage! I’ve been looking for a suitable ‘new home’ card for them but couldn’t find anything that I liked until the husband looked at me in a bemused fashion and said “but surely you’ll be making them one”. Hmmm …. maybe he has something there. So this morning I got to grips with card and paper and glue and glitter and came up with this
The quote inside says ‘It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home’ which is very true. I suspect that Monday will be pretty chaotic, but very exciting for them both. I also suspect that our house will feel pretty empty by the time we have unloaded everything and returned home!
