Well, Sandy and I took Jamie up to Aberdeen yesterday, having spent the previous day packing and shopping at IKEA and just generally rushing around like blue-arsed fleas. It's a 2-3 hour drive to Aberdeen from Edinburgh and it felt like we were going uphill all the way which, I suppose we were. Jamie had been out for a farewell drink with his pals the night before and hadn't gotten home till 5am so he slept most of the way - God to be that young again!.

Arrived in Aberdeen - and finally located his accommodation. It's about a 15 minute walk from the city centre and, for student halls, really quite nice - based on 6-8 people sharing a flat with a communal shower, bathroom, kitchen/diner and living room with each having their own bedroom. And although his acceptance was so late - the University managed to let him be in the same flat as one of his friends from Edinburgh so that makes me feel a bit better.

We went down to the main campus as I hadn't visited before - went to see the great new sports facilities and the really lovely surroundings down by the river - Jamie's degree is in Sports & Exercise Science. All in all, I'm really pleased with everything - if he has to be away from home then this is probably as good as it gets. Still going to miss him like crazy - but I keep telling myself, it's just the next phase of both his and our lives.
