GOODBYE JUNIORS

July 17, 2020

Where to start? In September Gracie headed into year six with such excitement. So much to look forward to and so much to gain. And then COVID happened and before we knew it the schooling system had changed dramatically. We as parents were the ones teaching and we had to prepare for them for the inevitable, that their end of year will be hugely different to previous. No production, no residential, no year 6 transition to senior school, no celebration.…

A BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND & SUNNY DAYS

April 22, 2019

You couldn’t ask for a better weekend. A four day bank holiday and sunny days. This weekend was pretty wonderful. The UK broke records for its weather over an Easter weekend and we definitely made the most of it. We had a mini Easter egg hunt at home, which both Gracie and Henry really enjoyed. We now have enough chocolate to last us a fair few months! It’s been a few days of relaxing, sorting the garden and spending time with family.…
