After ages and ages of things just sedately ticking along, suddenly it seems that a quantum leap is taking place
No.1 son (DO, the dark one) and wife are buying a new house, there is no chain so they hope to be in sometime in August.
No.2 son (FO, the fair one) and his partner are new parents, to my one month old granddaughter, and are slowly getting used to parenthood.
No.3 son (GO, ginger one) has just moved from a batchelor room in a shared house to a flat which he is sharing with his girlfriend's brother and partner, and, eventually, his girlfriend.
No.4 son (GT, ginger two) is just waiting for CRB check to be completed before embarking on a whole new career.
Exciting times. Good luck to all my sons.
