What a day!

The pain hit me as soon as I opened my eyes at 5am this morning. I went to the bathroom then got back in bed and tried to get a bit more sleep, hoping sleep would stop the headache taking hold. Ella came in some time later, not sure what time it was because I didn’t…

Reception, Year 2 and Secondary School

All children are now in school, full time 🙂 No more half days, private nurseries or different start and end times. Today is a good day! Our boy looked super smart this morning and I’m so proud of him. He was nervous when he came down to breakfast so a big hug was in order.…

Flashback Friday

Happiness. Joy. Nostalgia. A whole range of emotions well up in me when I see this photo. We all look so happy and that’s how I remember Christmases when I was little.
