A new blog for me and a new school term for the boys - Matthew is starting in the Reception class and Jamie going into Year 2. I'm slightly worried about Matthew as he doesn't like change and can often be quite stubborn and refuse to do things until they're the way he likes them but we'll just have to wait and see. He's only going in for the morning for this week then next week he has his packed lunch at school and I pick him up after that and then the following week he's into a full school day. I think that'll be when it hits me that he's started school as I've been so used to him not being here in the mornings following his 2 years at nursery.
Jamie I'm not worried about at all - he loves school and is dying to learn new things. I'm hoping this year that his abilities are stretched slightly more than last year.
As for me, I have a lot of reading to do "A Guide to the Law for School Governors" - somehow I don't think that's bedtime reading so I'll save it for during the day while the kids are out of the house.
I'm also hoping that now the kids are back at school I may be able to get some scrapping done. I have a gorgeous UKS Design Team kit from Just a Memory sat on my desk and waiting for inspiration to strike so I can have a play with it. My time on the Design Team will run out at the end of this year and although I've enjoyed the challenges we've faced and am grateful for the opportunity being given to me I'm looking forward to being able to scrap "just for me" and not having any DT or magazine work to do.
