:lol: but they WILL track you down when they are hungry and have no clean clothes to wear!
On the plus side you will, literally, have to drag them out of bed in the morning/early afternoon - so there is a little light at the end of the tunnel :wink:

Yeah, but then, they get jobs at fast-food places and stay out until 1, 2 in the morning, and you're sitting up listening for sirens, and you've got a wake-up at 6 or just before... :help:

No, that's fine, I've identified some key points in there and from that I can deduce that what you're describing comes AFTER the point where we change the locks and move to a different country...:D

Why would you change the locks and move to a different country? What you're doing there is pointlessly slowing down your quick escape. :wink:
No one ever drowned by getting out of their depth in a Welsh conversation.

Please DO read the forum guidelines. And how about putting up a poster or two in your locality?

I've seen Fatal Attraction. You just can't take chances with these things. I mean, obviously we'll change the locks in the new country as well.

I don't know about the timing, Aran. US might be different than Britain, but here, our kids can get jobs that have them driving around after midnight, at the tender age of 16. Technically, they're still minors (recent news item - guy got arrested and fined for leaving his "young child," 17 years old, alone in a car) so a parent can't quite yet move to that cave in the hills with no listed phone number and no forwarding address.

By then, they've developed a homing instinct, which only disappears when you want them to be at home.

Well I'm now on Lesson 24 of the first course, progress slowed a bit this year due to work and family commitments but I seem to have been able to speed up a bit this last month. I've worked my way through 24 in slow time and I'm now getting up to speed with the patterns.

Quite enjoying watching s4c and trying to figure out what is going on in Pobol y Cwm.
