This month our home grows by two as my parents visit for most of November. Our eldest is away for four days in Oman for her year 6 residential trip. I have a lump in my throat as I wave her goodbye but I know that she will have the time of her life and of course, she is growing up, as all our babies do. This is just the start of letting go. At home, with a slightly depleted Tribe, I find myself with a smidgen more time – I manage to play basketball with the others and get thrashed at cards before bedtime!
