In September I had the honor of driving my second born to Nottingham (England) for the start of her second year of University.
She is an artistic soul and is studying Textiles and Design there. I say honour because I really enjoy road trips with my children, as it seems to make them chatty.
Whether it is the sheer nervousness caused by being trapped in the car with their mother for several hours at a time, or just the luxury of having me to themselves (we have 5 children), I am unsure.
I suspect the motive changes depending on what has been going on in our lives. I am choosing to believe it is the latter reason, maybe I am deluded! ..
