Well it's a farflung family.
Sloph is off to Moscow for three months on a language course, after finishing Oxford. Now she has to decide what to do in life. Our family never just decides to buckle down and get a 9-5 job.
Her brief spot as a guest author on my blog during the war has not convinced her to start her own blog, unfortunately.
Bee spent the summer interrailing in South East Europe. You can read all about it on her new blog Allbran here. So far she has only got as far as Prague: Checking in - Czeching out, doing what all British young people do in Prague: drink. Not all the details are the ones a mother wants to hear, but at least I know what she is up to from the blog. Wait for further details on Istanbul, Tirana, Pristina. While I was blogging on the war, she was busy visiting Castle Bran: war what war?
Of course these days when Oxford University proctors snoop on Facebook to see what pranks their students are up to, you never know what university admissions tutors use to select their students. But who am I to tell her what to write.
