 Well it's been a very days since i've posted but to be honest, now that the girls are all back at school, life is pretty mundane.  I spend a fair bit of time taking and collecting from school - they are all at different ones - and a couple of after school clubs have restarted so that involves driving around. The highlight of this week was that L had her haircut after school on Friday.  I have had to snip at the fringe a few times to keep it out of her eyes but it was in desperate need of a good tidy up.  My cut and colour is booked for the 19th which I cannot wait for - a nice bit of pampering.

On Saturday, we went over to Torquay.  We parked up at Meadfoot Beach and had a car picnic, due to the weather, and then had a very blustery walk all along the front.  It was nice to get out for some fresh air and exercise.

                  

                  

                  

                  

I've finished my last book, which was really good, and have now just started this one by Kate Atkinson.

                                                    

Tuesday, I start my new job which is exciting and nerve wracking in equal measures!. I shall need to be organised as I need to leave the house at 7.45. Hubby will be working from home Tuesdays so that he can do school drop offs/collection as I won't finish till 5.00. We are also having work done on three of our trees, which are all protected, having finally got planning permission.

    1. Thankyou - I'm sure it will be fine once I get stuck in - it's just the thought of it all getting me a bit anxious!

  2. When I look back on the days I used to take the children to school I really miss it. All those little conversations we used to have on the way. Sometimes I wish I could go back to it all. The sea looks very dramatic in your photos. Good luck with your new job. How exciting!

    1. L is year 5 so I haven't got much longer of walking her down to school - when she leaves I will have done 17 years of primary school runs so I imagine it will take some adjusting, to get used to the end of that chapter of my life! I remember crying my eyes out when she started school because she was my last and that was the end of having little ones at home!

    1. I absolutely cannot wait to sit and be pampered for a couple of hours. The great thing, is it's daughter D's birthday that day and we are going out to dinner, so the perfect day to get it done.

    1. It was lovely to get some fresh air and exercise and although very windy at least it wasn't raining as well.

 Oh my goodness, another week has gone in a flash! Four more weeks of school and then hopefully I can settle back into a slower pace of life...
