Half term this year has been a bit of a strange one. I have been with the children all week yet I don’t feel I spent time with them. The goal of the week was to get through to Friday. My precious Nans funeral.Continue reading “February Half Term 2019”

Do you find it hard to get your children to talk about their day? Find out how I have got my children to open up about their day at school.
“What have you been up to today?”
Does this sound familiar to you? It’s the usual reply I get from my children at the school gate. That or “it was boring”, “not a lot” the list of non committal answers is endless!

Then remembering all those forms I need to sign and money that needs to make its way to the office! I don’t know whether I am coming or going and wish we were back in the lull of our beautiful summer.

Five happy weeks have been and gone. Just one week left until the chaos of school descends upon us.Continue reading “Five weeks into the summer holidays “
