Back to school

My two small people went back to school today after a what seemed to be a very quick seven week Summer Holiday ~ I'm not quite sure where the time went to, but it certainly zoomed by at a very alarming rate indeed!

We were all up bright and breezy this morning, trying very hard to get back into some sort of routine. Breakfast, teeth cleaned, little faces washed, new clothes to put on, packed lunches made and new school bags packed.

Off they both trotted, looking very happy and cheery in their brand new school uniforms and their beautifully shiny new black school shoes ~ which will no doubt be scuffed to death by the end of the first day back! Thank Goodness for Scuff Coat is all that I can say about that!!

I delivered them safely to school this morning and am now sitting with a well earned cup of tea and enjoying the peace and quiet ~ Ahhhh...........Bliss!! There's nothing quite like coming home from the school run and being able to do whatever YOU want for a couple of hours. No constant cries of MUM!, or I'M BORED!! to be heard at all. It goes without saying that I will miss them terribly ~ but I can't tell you how nice it is to have some ME time back again.

I know that most of you still have a few weeks of your Summer Holidays to go and hope that you all have a very lovely time :O) xx

Ahh Bless my little one is only 2 but I am not looking forward to him starting school at all. But on the other hand I can't wait. Enjoy your "Me Time". Can't believe the hols are over for them already - it seemed to go very quickly. Clare x

Do you already know what to do with your "Me Time". I usually have to wait a few days untill I get used to having peace and quiet around the house. I'm really lost those few days. I hope you enjoy it!

My little girl has just started primary school. I wish I could say it went without a hitch but she HATED wearing the uniform and socks and shoes were too much of a transition for her from the bare feet she's had most of the summer. Poor wee savage!

Nice new shoes, and the new backpacks are great, especially the one on the left! Hope they're still enjoying themselves.

What a scary thought - my two are back next week and I can't say I'm looking forward to it - although it'll be nice to have a quiet house!

Oooh, not long til my two go back! They return on Monday 6th September.

I must admit, it's now gotten to the point where I'm counting down the days, including hours and minutes!! lol xx

Hello there!

I bet the peace and quiet is lovely!! My own little bean has begun nursery today, and next tuesday is her First Day By Herself, so I will be discovering the same peace and quiet myself!!
Glad you received the print safely, and Im delighted that you like it - thank you for your kind words!

Much love
Julia x x x
