Thing’s I have learnt from the first half term at school

So today is the end of the first half term of big school for us! We are now in full swing of school life  and I thought I would share some of the things I have learnt from our first half term of school.. Your child will be absolutely shattered 95% of the time that they are actually with you, school is so different to nursery and it hits them like a ton of bricks. You will get over it – the first day you may weep a little but give it a week or two and you’ll soon be over…

It’s nearly half term..

Next week will be half term (mini celebratory dance). This term has been our toughest yet. Maisy started reception in September and I have never seen a little person more in need of a holiday.

Enjoying the last of the summer sun

Just when I thought summer was over and done with, it seems to have returned this weekend and we have had two beautiful sunny days. I was determined to make the most of them after the rubbish summer we have had this year – and living in Dorset where else would you want to spend a sunny weekend than at the beach. Saturday the girls and I headed down to Sandbanks for some scooter riding, sand castle making and chips! It is hard to believe that next week it will be October with the sun shining like this. Maisy and Bella are…
