‘I wish there was more laundry to do’ – said no empty nester ever.
I am a mother of 3 ranging in age from 22 to 18. I live in Hertfordshire in the UK, and am going through the transition from busy home life to empty nest. Finding it all a bit of a roller coaster in terms of emotions and plans. After a couple of false starts in my effort to embrace this new phase I have since spoken to other women and men and found that there are quite a few of us out there experiencing the whole gamut of conflicting emotions when kids leave the home, boomerang back and generally make their way.
There seemed to be a lot on the internet about the empty nest – but not so much UK based, so I thought I’d give it a shot and you are looking at the result. Any comments, ideas, suggestions and constructive criticism happily received.
Any advice given is entirely personal and subjective and to the best of my knowledge, the way I would advise a friend over a cup of coffee. For complete accuracy please always check the links provided.
