Leaving home for Uni

How can one room in halls cost so much????

As we prepare for the day when the daughter leaves home to go to university I find the bank balance is being stretched to and beyond overdraft limits.

At the chance of repeating my self, how can one room cost so much?

Let me list the ways!

  1. “Dad you made me have a room with a single bed so I need a new quilt.”
  2. “Dad you made me have a room with a single bed so I need a new quilt cover.”
  3. “Dad you made me have a room with a single bed so I need a new pillowcase to match the new quilt and cover.”
  4. “Dad you made me have a room with a single bed so I need a slim computer (Mac) as there is not much room for a desk-top and my lap-top has seen better days.”
  5. “Dad you made me have a room with a single bed and self catering so I need saucepans.”
  6. “Dad you made me have a room with a single bed and self catering so I need cutlery.”
  7. “Dad you made me have a room with a single bed and self catering so I need crockery.”
  8. “Dad you made me have a room with a single bed and self catering so I need potato peeler, cheese grater, spatula…….”
  9. “Dad they say I need waterproof trousers.”

10. “Dad they say I need waterproof coat.”

11. “Dad they say I need waterproof boots.”

12. “Dad I have to pay to join this society.”

13.  And the best of the lot!

“Dad you know I can’t have my car in Liverpool, will you buy mine off me?”

“Didn’t I buy it for you? Why would I want to buy it twice?”

“No you know what I mean?”

“No I really don’t, but then it’s not me going to university for five years to train as a vet is it!!!!”

I guess the déjà vu moment will be next year when she moves out of halls and into a house with more than one room to furnish!

Kids £148k each they reckon, mine are asking for every penny!
