Strange day today!
No2 son is at school all day, starting today.
They have eased us in gently by just starting
with half days but the moment has come
for school to start proper!
So many different thoughts and emotions....
Have I done enough?
Have we had as much fun as we should have?
Have we been enough places and made
enough mess?
Who am I now I don't have children at home
all day?
But also.....
How quickly can I sort my craft room so I can play?
How nice to be able to organise No2 birthday party
for Friday without late nights!
This might take some getting used to!

Our Summer (Part 3)

The boys (and yes, I am including my husband!) love Warwick Castle!

What's not to love?

What boy doesn't love the spectacle of real knights and fighting!

Of course, nothing beats having a go yourself!

Our Summer (Part 2)

**If your mother's name is Monica, please look away now!
I promised not to tell you this!!!!!**

The boys have a new favourite place!

I'm quite keen as well - we got annual passes for
nothing more than a few Tesco vouchers!
We spent two very happy but tiring days near Windsor.
The boys want to go back soon.
The only downside?
Since our visit my house has looked like this!
