Here we are on the last day of the summer holidays. I couldn't
quite believe that the entire six weeks of the holidays have gone
already and tomorrow Markie will be back at school and it wil be the
start of a new school year. On Monday Lulu will start nursery, an
entirely new experience both for her and for me. There are so many changes and so many things to learn and adjust to again. I don't
feel I'm ready to face them yet. The girls are excited but I'd quite
happily have a few more weeks of these quiet, easy days at home
that I've enjoyed so much these past six weeks. And if summer
can stay around for a bit longer, I'd take that as well. I'm no fan of
busy days and colder months as you can probably tell. But ready
or not, school will start and Autumn will come *sigh* I just need
to get my head round it all and I'm sure that will come soon.
For now, I'll try and enjoy this last day for as long as I can. I had
a lie-in this morning and then after a late breakfast, took the girls
to our favourite tea room and then the playground. This afternoon
we're at home just taking it easy. The girls are watching Despicable
Me. I might read a bit or crochet.
I've been thinking of how good this summer has been. It's
probably part of the reason why I'm reluctant to let it go just yet.
Plus, of course, there's Lulu, our baby, going off to nursery.
I know it's only for two days a week but it will still be quite a change
for both of us. She'll love it, I'm sure, and I'll finally have time
on my own to spend as I please. As a lovely old lady said on the
bus today 'The world will be your oyster'. And it will be,
between 9 and 3 on Mondays and Fridays. It's actually all going
to be good. It doesn't feel quite that way at the moment but
I'm sure it will be. And we might still have an Indian Summer,
after all. That's a nice thing to hope for- I'll be keeping my
