“My daughter is far stronger than I will ever be”

Children are amazing little creatures. The strength they have and the determination is incredible. I saw all of this inside my tiny 5 year old daughter when she went through her growth hormone test yesterday. We arrived at the hospital at 8:45am. My Grandad came to support whilst hubby had P2 for the day. P1 hadn’t asked for food or …

“The frustrating and daunting decision has come to say goodbye”

In January 2012 my little white 1995 Vauxhall Corsa with pink butterfly and flower stickers decided it wanted to keep breaking down on me. The last straw happened when it broke down in the middle of those yellow boxes and I was completely stuck with no help and many cars beeping and passing by. Luckily, it was opposite my work …

“Today topped it off when the school received their Ofsted report”

We’ve put the icing on top of a cake that’s slowly been created. Sorry, this post isn’t about yummy treats, it’s about P1s education. We uprooted our family to Sevenoaks nearly 5 months ago to start a complete fresh and better life. The schools are better, the lifestyle is better and the people are nicer.
