Now it’s for real: Anna Sofie has gone to London to take a foundation class of Art & Design at Blake College.
We first had a little trouble to find her a nice place to live, but that’s settled now; she’s going to share a flat with two other young girls, neighbours to some friends of some friends.
I have just been with Anna Sofie in London a few days in order to see the place, meet the flatmates and talk to the headmaster of the college. Now I feel good about everything and can relax a little. I’m happy to know my daughter’s in good company and has people around who’ll keep an eye on her.
It has been a terribly emotional summer though, with lots of ups and downs. Imagine – not only does your firstborn leave the nest – she’s even going abroad! Luckily she seems very confident and self-assured about it all. She definitely looks forward to try out standing at her own two feet.
To be blessed with an optimistic outlook is a true privilege. And her time will come soon: Term starts the 17. September at her 18.th birthday!
