Here's a picture of DS and girlfriend taken last new year (07). His hair is a bit shorter now and he's lost one or two of his piercings. Otherwise he doesn't look much different. He's a chef. He moved out last week into a rented flat with his girlfriend.
The good bit is this leaves his bedroom free for fabric stash but the other side of the coin is empty nest syndrome. I'm sure it'll get better... He's left twice before and come back but I think this may be it. He's only down the road. My bonnie lad.
