Michaela and I have been married for 27 years and it feels like we are entering a new phase of our lives. William went away to university this week; to study at the Scottish Association for Marine Science. Emily has now moved into a flat with Paul in Paisley and is in the final year of her degree. Everything is changing.
Meanwhile I am drawing towards the end of my year of writing/making things. We have been so busy so decided to take a couple of days out and become tourists.
We went to the Scottish Sculpture Park, over the other side of the Peninsula- a place we have been meaning to visit for years.
This is what people do, it seems, when their kids have left home. They take flasks of tea and visit places.
Tomorrow we will be busy again. Yesterday, we were not.
