Word of the Week 29/8/14

This week my word is SCHOOL the kids finally went back to school yesterday.


Only for two hours because they are year 8 & 9 and it gives the new year 7’s a chance to settle in on their own.

I do love having the kids at home and spending time with them but 6 weeks is far too long. We all get irritated with each other and I feel like I don’t get a break with the late nights and the constant activities an days out, it’s also not great for my bank balance!

The kids were excited to go back and (apart from a horrible tantrum) Harry and I had a lovely couple of hours together 🙂

  4. They look happy to be heading back to school and friends 🙂 I’m nervous about my eldest starting this year but I must admit, after a very long 7 weeks, I’m kind of looking forward to it too 😉 x

  5. Ah, that is a lovely photo. Glad you and Harry enjoyed your time, too (tantrum aside!) Thanks for sharing with #WotW

    It’s always a novelty to go back to school after the summer break, isn’t it? What a great idea to only go in for a couple of hours to give the Year 7’s a chance to get used to it, it’s so daunting for them with all the big kids rushing around! x

    This was my word of the week last week and back to school for me too as I’m a teacher. Have to say your two are looking very happy to be starting back -lovely photo. Helen

    They look like they are ready for the coming school year ahead =) #wotw

  11. I am totally with you here – six weeks is far too long. We also are now getting irritated with each other, and my bank balance can take no more days out. Roll on Tuesday when our school reopens!
