No we are taking her stuff down Wed/Thurs then coming home & she is going down by train next Saturday

I really struggle leaving her places - so dropping her at the station will be easier for both of us - my mum is convinced it's wrong, she won't cope and anyway the trains won't be running so wants to drive her down

But DD & I have been doing drop at station every weekend for the last year & it works for us :roll: [-( ](*,)

Can highly recommend a foam roller for massaging muscles after exercise.

I felt the same when DD moved out ... but we ended up taking another carful of stuff with us when she went back after the Christmas break. Heaven only knows how we will get everything back when she finishes next summer :shock:

Well it all fitted in & there is space left!!

Her landlady is lovely

Her room mate is lovely & in the same year as a lad from school who has offered help if she gets stuck/has problems! Both of them have promised she will make friends :D

We pick her up in a bit to do a big shop & put up posters & practise the walk to the station & my baby is growing up!!
