The phone rang just as I started thinking about lunch, feeling particularly peckish because everything is an hour later today.

“Is it twelve o’clock?” Asked my daughter from her university room.

“Ye-es,” I said slowly.

“The clocks have gone back…right?” She continued.

“Yes, we put the clocks back last night,” I affirmed.

“Good. Thanks. Bye.”

As a parent it is good to know that you still have a role to play in your children’s lives as they grow older.

      Becky – good luck in your new home!

      PS Your Mum will probably be sad to see you go, so you can cheer her up by popping round at unexpected times with bags of washing, or requests for money, or asking if you could have pieces of furniture, or whenever you are hungry and can’t be bothered to cook…etc She will appreciate this. 🙂
