Back to School – Again

I’m feeling really weird about all the back to school messaging right now. I’m pleased he’s going back, he needs it, I’ve tried my best but ultimately I’m not a teacher and in a very poor substitute for playtime with his friends. I’m also sad he’s going back, I really will miss him. I’m worried too, worried it’s too much, too soon, concerned that it might lead to further lockdowns and the impact that would have.

Now I need to stress that these are just the rather muddled thoughts of a stressed out, worried, tired and confused mum. This is not a well balanced, researched and thought out view on the current state of affairs. I know very little about politics. I haven’t researched anything. I’m just trying to get by and writing helps.

Bowling House Norwich

Last weekend we took L to Bowling House in Norwich for a little treat. It may or may not have escaped your attention but L started school in September. I have not been handling it well! I was given plenty of advice from plenty of people but the one thing that stuck with me was from a friend of mine who simply said, make sure you have some nice things planned. Bowling House Norwich Continue reading Bowling House Norwich
