Family day trip
After a mammoth 9.30 lie in on Saturday morning (both kids had been up quite a lot during the night) we decided to go out for the day. First stop was Castlerigg stone circle, where we had a picnic. Izzy enjoyed racing around the circle, playing hide and seek behind the stones and playing ‘tag’. Then we headed into Keswick to feed the ducks and go for a walk. And of course visit the chocolate shop!
In September, my little girl officially becomes a big girl as she starts school. Her Pre-school is right next door to the Infants and she has been spending a little bit of time each week since January exploring her new school, checking out her classroom and meeting her teacher.
On Monday we had an induction meeting. All the parents, sat on teeny tiny chairs in the hall, listening to the headmistress tell us all about the rules, what they will be learning and what to do on the first day. Izzy is really looking forward to going to reception class. It’s a little sad that she is growing up so fast, and I will miss her when she is at school on the days I don’t work, but she is so ready for ‘big school’.
On Friday all new starters were invited to attend the school for dinner, so they could see what it is like. Izzy met a couple of children who will be in her class and when she finished her lunch she went up to the dinner lady, said thank you and told her she had had a lovely time. Obviously sucking up early to make sure she gets generous portions!
This week on the blog
The lovely Mara from Hook, Thread and Tinker featured my pregnancy and birth story on her new blog series, Mums Around The Globe. You can read my story here.
We made a memory jar full of baby keepsakes.
I’ve also been doing some research on going self hosted. I want to stick with wordpress and I think I’ve found a host, but I just want to make sure I’m well prepared and I’ve thought of everything before I take the plunge! Any advice or tips would be gratefully received.
