“Look at the 4×4 – that’s hot!” says Marty McFly in one of the Back to the Future movies.  When I write that line I can hear my brother at the age of about 7 repeating it over and over.  He really loved those movies.  And did you know that the “Future” is coming up soon?  In a couple of years anyway…

So, why am I rambling about some movie from the 80’s?  Well, I feel like I’ve been instantly sent back in time to my teens because Dave & I am living with mum!  I have my own room where I’ve tried to cram all my worldly possessions (I’ve got just enough room for a yoga mat which is perfect!).  We have to negotiate what goes on the telly.  The cupboards are crammed with food to accommodate everyone’s tastes.  I’ve got to find a place to set up my studies.  Living with your mum is a great way to feel young again, in my opinion!  And I am loving the family support and feeling connected on a daily basis.

On my first night there I went to my room to get a bit of “me” time (just like the old teenage days…) and I could hear my mum chuckling at her TV programme.  It was music to my ears!
