“School seems to be ruining everything I worked hard to create”

I spoke to the teacher this morning about P1s hair incident. I wish I hadn’t now to be honest. Ok, the teacher was extremely apologetic and I felt reassured that she was going to speak with P1 and the girl involved. However, when getting her home today and asking her about her day at school she owned up to actually …

“P1 had some of her hair cut off at school today!”

I’ve thought about many ways to start this post but I just can’t find the words for it. P1 had some of her hair cut off at school today! I’m beyond devastated and confused. It’s only a little bit in comparison to what it could have ended up like. Children are cruel. Do I blame the little girl who did …

To My Princess 1 – 4 Years 10 Months

To my Princess 1, I cannot believe how much you have grown this month. Not height wise, intelligence wise. You are reading! It takes time but you are actually reading most words. You sound out each letter to help you form each word. You’ve been picked on at school a couple of times recently which broke my heart. You kept …

“These days apparently the harvest offering is £1”

I experienced my first Harvest Festival as a parent of a reception class child today. P1 has been practising her singing for the past week, a song I used to sing for my harvest festivals. Every single song reminded me of my school days and my harvest festivals back in primary school! I could sing along to the whole festival. …

“History is certainly repeating itself!”

P1 came home from school today with a tale that brought back many memories of my own school days. She told me that a boy from year 2 was picking her up in the playground and she didn’t like it.   History is certainly repeating itself! P1 is a tiny dot just like her Mummy and therefore I knew I …

“I don’t really know what careers there are in writing”

I want to learn something. I don’t know what. I’m interested in becoming a nail technician so that I can do it in my spare time. I’m also very interested in law, but gave up on the open university course that I started last year whilst pregnant. I’m the type of person that craves things but never finishes things. I …

To My Princess 1 – 4 Years 9 Months

To my Princess 1, Unfortunately this past month has been a horrible one for the whole family. In your first day of school, 3rd September 2013, you were sent home early because you fell and you clamped down on your tongue cussing quite a bit of damage. We took you to A&E. This was also the day that Great-Nanny went …

“The motivation for it just isn’t there at the moment”

I’m really struggling this week to get out of bed. The motivation for it just isn’t there at the moment. Last week was absolutely fine. My routine was this; 6:45am wake up, have shower, put dressing gown on, give P1 her breakfast at 7:15am, do washing up, tidying up, get P1 into her school uniform, let her watch some telly, …

“I can’t remember half the things I’ve wanted to post about”

I’ve drained my data allowance on my phone, and our home has no Internet set up just yet. I’m getting withdrawals of blogging and to be honest, I can’t remember half the things I’ve wanted to post about. So I thought I’d just give you a quick update in photos! I’ll be back very soon! Find me on Facebook & …

“Not only was P1 sent home from school we also ended up in A&E”

It never occurred to me that I’d get a phone call to collect P1 from her first day at school. But it was just our luck. The morning went swimmingly. I woke P1 up, gave her the porridge I’d cooked for her, got her dressed, teeth and hair done. She was excited about wearing her princess backpack and we went …

“she’ll be the smallest but with the biggest attitude”

Oh no! The time has come. She’s been bathed, fed, stories read, a long chat and on time bedtime… Yup, P1 is starting her school career tomorrow! Tomorrow?! I swear it doesn’t seem real. I think back of my school memories. They were the toughest years of my life but they were also the very best too. I’m hoping things …

To My Princess 1 – 4 Years 8 Months

To my Princess 1, I seriously cannot believe that you’ll be starting school in less than two weeks. It seems like such a long time ago that you were a tiny baby like your sister and so dependent on me. You’ve grown up ridiculously this past month. Finally able to put your own clothes on and the majority of the …

Appeal Unsuccessful

Guess what? P1 doesn’t have a school. Yup. Our appeal was unsuccessful and I found this out the day before we went on holiday! We are half way through the school holidays. This is meant to be a time where my OH and I were going to part with lots of cash buying uniforms and stationary for our daughter. She …
