Tomorrow is the last day of term before the summer holidays. I am having so many conflicting emotions right now. I am really happy because I am shattered and I could do with a change of routine. But I am also a bit sad because I like doing the school run. I like getting up and out in the morning, I like having a natter with friends at the school gates and like walking home and hearing all about my daughter's day. I am also sad because it's the end of my daughter's first year at school. It's been such a fantastic year. She has loved it and we've not had any problems with her work or her wanting to go to school. I don't think I am ready to leave the cosyness of the Reception playground and become a Year 1 mum. But I am excited because my little girl is excited. I know she'll do fantastically next year and I can't wait to see her continue on her school adventure. But mainly I am really looking forward to spending six weeks with both my children and having lots of summer fun together. I will deal with the fact they are growing up so fast in September. My son starts pre-school in September but I shall save that emotional wobble for another post!
I chose this photo today as it looks like a perfect place to take the kids for a summer lunchtime treat. Plus of course it is supremely pretty. I love the pastels. In fact never mind the children, it's a perfect place for me to have a lunchtime treat on my own!
