All By Myself

It's Daniel's first day back to school today, and he starts in the sixth form. He doesn't have to wear a school uniform anymore but still has to dress smart, and he looked very dapper this morning as he set off.

Eleanor went back on Tuesday and is already in the swing of things. She starts on her GCSE subjects this year, so she's extremely happy that she doesn't have to study the subjects she doesn't like anymore.

The holidays this year have seemed much longer than usual. I think it's because Daniel finished way back on 27th May, half way through his GCSEs, so he's had a whopping fourteen and a half weeks off. I feel that we've made the most of the holidays having plenty of trips out, as well as our fortnight away in Cornwall and Devon.

Now they're back at school I'm going to reacquaint myself with my knitting, which had to be pulled out whilst I was on holiday as I'd made too many mistakes. I'm one of those people who has to concentrate whilst knitting otherwise I go wrong. I'm also behind with my magazine reading, and I've a couple of DVDs to watch too. There's never any me time during holidays.


  1. Sounds like a nice way to spend a day, hope you enjoy it!

  2. Enjoy your 'me time'. The DVDs look good, could just sit and watch one of those right now.

  3. Sounds like a good time to be had - enjoy

  4. Enjoy your time!! I need to concentrate on the knitting too! It's the one time I can't talk?!! Cx

  5. Thanks for your comments, everyone.
