Further details

This week Pam talks about her first home, about the impact of her grown-up sons leaving home and about the unwelcome prospect of downsizing.

There are also looks at how making your home more 'vintage' can go too far, how to make your child feel more at home if they have to return to the nest post-university, and how to approach the thorny issue of moving into single beds when your partner's snoring becomes too much to bear.

Poems include: A September Song, My Little Grandson & Pollen on the Wind.
