    What a weird feeling, I feel numb.
    Her big sister is already upstairs swapping bedrooms around because she opted for a smaller one years ago.
    It seems strange that we will only see her now & then over the next 3 years :(

    Anybody else gone through this today?

    If your daughter's uni is just a train ride away then you might see her more regularly than you think. And you'll certainly hear from her a lot once she burns through the student loan.

    She'll be back for 6 months of the year. Don't worry, time flies.

    yea, girls tend to call/visit home more often, so I wouldn't worry too much, I know my mum was massively distraught when I was leaving :/

    I used to be at home for little over 6 months of the year in my first and half of 2nd year. Prob won't be at home for as much in my 3rd (and final) year because got partner up here now.

    But she will come back and call often! :)

    Your daughter is gonna have good times. Uni's the best time of your life, fact.

    Edit: 'Good times' not meant to be taken euphamistically.

    I'm off tomorrow, enrolling/Freshers week commences a week tomorrow!

    I was exactly like this, once you get there it's really not as bad as you think it will be - you get to eat whatever meal you like rather than having those meals that are given to you by mum/dad and you really don't want!

    My little sister just moved out. Parents have already converted her room to a guest room :p Having moved out about 6 years ago myself, my parents are now realising just how empty the house is.

    I move in on Tuesday, although i know loads of people who went today. Don't start lectures till the 4th though as i have 2 weeks of freshers :eek:

    I can tell my mum isn't looking forward to it. She's prepared loads of food for me to take. I'm not sure i'm going to have the chance to fully cook my own meal before i come back for Christmas :D

    As everyone says time will fly, last year went seriously fast for me.

    Brother starts tomorrow but he is staying at home as he is going to local uni, most of his friends are staying round her working and going to uni locally aswell.

    I got back a week on Monday. :D I actually managed to pass a year of Uni, and I broke a bone this year as well!

    My little brother went to uni yesterday, strangely enough I think my dad was more upset than my mum, he must have called him a half-dozen times already today.
