Hello there. I am so sorry about the lack of blogging. Having the girls at home all summer made things a little hectic around here and unfortunately the blog was the one to suffer. I do hope that I have still have some readers left out there.

My eldest started high school last Thursday which was a wee bit scary for me. She was fine, excited rather than nervous. I was terrified though. She had never been on a bus alone before and I was worried that she would get lost or kidnapped (I have a tendency to over exaggerate). I have been quite protective of her as she has had a lot of upheaval in her life and so going to high school was a big step for me.

Luckily though she is loving it. The older pupils have all been really helpful and nice. The bus driver is lovely and she didn't get lost. I'm really lucky that she is such a good kid and that we managed to get her into a good school. She is very sensitive and I was worried that she might be teased for that but so far so good.

This morning my littlest one started primary school and I was ok with that until I got home and then I just felt lost. Last year she was at preschool so she started at 9 and finished at 11.30. That gave me time to come home, have a coffee, tidy up and then go to pick her up. A full school day is just a little odd. I want to know how she is doing and if she has made new friends. I just want to know that she is ok. I suppose I will just have to get used to it, it just might take a while.

I will be back to normal blogging soon. I just need to get used to my new found freedom and hopefully stop feeling so lost.

Take care x


  1. Take it easy, its an emotional time for you but it does get easier, glad you're back x x x x x x x x x x jane

  2. Hope it's all feeling a wee bit easier as the days have gone one. You sound a wonderful mum who's suffering the flipside of loving and enjoying your kids so much. Good to read that your worst fears were all not to be. Take care.

  3. Think of all the lovely things you can make with your new found freedom! Hope your daughters are enjoying their new schools.

  4. I remember those days well, but you'll soon get into new routines. Just be content that the girls are both enjoying their new worlds and encourage them to embrace all the new challenges.
    So now you have more time to yourself what are you going to make, hmmmm? What's your new challenge?
    As for moving to Yorkshire, hubbys job is always a tricky one. My hubby still has to travel 120miles once a week back to East Yorkshire for his job, but luckily he can work from home the other 3 days! We had to wait months for that decision to come from his boss when we were wanting to move! Good Luck, don't give up hope.

  5. I remember it so well. Wait until they go to UNI. When my daughter went I felt like I had lost a limb, it is so hard to see them grow, enjoy every minute of them whilst they are still at home..
