No details necessary but my eldest has had a really sh*tty year and 5 days before her birthday she's just been accepted into college for midwifery starting January.
Should be fun with a just about two year old by then.
Looks like Nan and Gramps (me) will be doing a bit more co-parenting for the next 3 years.

That's great news that mate.
Terrible what's been happening to that profession and nursing in the NHS so great news all round.

As I've decided to blow the family trumpet should add I'm not quite as chuffed that child 2 will be off to Canada in November. Initially for 6 months but she's got a two year working visa.
Don't get me wrong, chuffed for her but I'm really going to miss her. She's the bright spot in any room and will have made friends within a couple of days of arriving.
Still takes some gumption to up sticks and move country on your own.

Wouldn't surprise me if she ended up there permanently but even if not she'll always have itchy feet.

Is it east coast/Toronto side?  That's not tooooo far.  The likes of Australia's almost a different world (as one member is proof of...) and a much different travel/visiting proposition.
Best of luck to her - it will be real tough for you at first but it's what she wants to do...

Banff, Alberta. Sort of three quarters across.
Working in a ski resort.

Interviewer: Have you ever skied?
Answer: Yes a few times but I'm not any good.
Reality: Never
Result: Looking for deals at Chill Factor for a few lessons before going.

I have a book of photographs just from Banff.
The most beautiful place I ever seen probably.  Autumn colours like nothing else.
Yes, deffo get over to Chill Factore - we were by it last week doing the indoor skydiving thing.
Can often get a few deals off Groupon etc. - starter lessons etc.
