Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference.

And Then It Hit Me

We are in the last week of school holidays. The kids needed books and school shoes before they start. So, a few days ago we headed to the shops and stocked up. New stationery, new shoes.

Mr B is away this week on a youth camp. While he is away I am painting his room. I was going through his room preparing it to be painted. There, still in the box, were the school shoes we just bought.

And then it hit me. This will be the last pair of school shoes I ever buy him. 12 years of schooling and this is it.

How am I going to cope this year? My heart is already breaking.
