Bye bye Jake

Big day for number one son today - its his first school trip away from home. He's only going away for one night, but hes very excited / nervous / scared / apprehensive about it. We had a big chat last night and he was quite tearful, saying he is going to miss us etc. (which, although nice, brings a lump to your throat!) but I'm sure he'll be fine. He's stayed away from home before, but only with grandparents, so this is a bit different. Its a shame I can't be there to send him off on the coach, but maybe its a good thing, because he won't be as upset. For me, its not much different from a normal Thursday / Friday - you see, a lot of the time, I'll come to work on Thursday before he's up, and if Im playing golf (which I am tonight) then I don't see him at all until Friday after school, as he stays with my mother a lot on Thursday nights as both the wife and I are out. So for me, it won't be much different, but for him... he'll be fine, he's a sensible boy and he's got his head screwed on right.
So, playing golf tonight, then tomorrow evening playing badminton with Mr. P - as I don't play much football anymore, I want to try and do something to keep fit, we we're gonna try and play once a week. I like badminton, was even quite good at it in my youth, so I'm quite looking forward to it.
No soundtrack of the day today, as I'm with someone all day helping them with a project.

Growing up is such an adventure. this is a big step for young Jake, but sounds like he is well prepared.
I used to play a lot of badminton. Wonderful game.
