We've got quite a while before our nest empties... Which is good because if they left now they'd be helpless after using all the dishes once...

Kid, standing in front of sink full of dirty dishes, looking around helplessly: "Mom?"..... "Mom?".......... "MOM?!!"

Both kids within 20 miles of LA.... Close to each other too which is nice.

So different to the UK where everyone is close so we may eventually head out West too (That's sounds like me being a Cowboy / Pioneer).
