The only thing left is to say goodbye to Mom and Dad. The taxi to adulthood is already honking its horn. The last cup of tea together has been drunk and the threshold crossed. When a child sets out into the adult life, sometimes it is as though a thread has been pulled, unravelling the parents’ world, with consequences for everyone.
