Looking to the future
|Bluebell - isn't this a pretty wee flower|
Emma's school gave the final year pupils two days off to visit local universities. So she went along with a few of her friends into Glasgow this week to visit on the Open Days. We still have a few to visit but I think she has decided which one she would like to attend and also what kind of subject to study. She is very excited about it, and raring to go.
Ever since Emma was about five years old she has had numerous ideas of what she wanted to be when she grew up. Her first ideas were things like a cowgirl and a gardiner - she used to watch gardening programs on the telly and got totally engrossed in them. Then when she was a bit older it was a dolphin handler and a vet etc. She loves drama, sings and plays the guitar so that featured quite heavily as well. Now though my little dreamer has a more sensible head on her shoulders and is thinking more along the lines of business management. I'm sure she will do well in whatever she finally decides to do.
Another thing she has been thinking about is leaving home and moving into the halls of residence when she goes to University. Now remember this is my baby I'm talking about (lol, she hates when I call her that) and I don't really want to think about any of my girls moving out although I know it is inevitable and will happen sooner rather than later.
Anyway I've got a year before all of this actually happens so I'm going to bury my head in the sand until then and enjoy the girls while they are all at home.
