You never stop being a mum

My children are 28. 24 and 20 now and I'm beginning to wonder if there is ever a time when you can stop worrying about them, having to take them to places and don't have to pay for them anymore!
This weekend all I've done is take and pick up my daughter to places and I am so skint that I can't afford food until I get paid on Friday. I still pay for my children's mobile phones - I think something needs to change.
Surely by now I should have some freedom and my money should be mine. I don't think there is ever a time when you are a Mum that you can retire!
My children ring me for advice, always want things and in a lot of ways it's good that they know they can but sometimes I just need a break!
