Back to school!

Ok, Ok so it's 5 days after the event but, hey, I've been busy! Anyway the kids have started their new school & seem to be loving it! Joshua & Matty have gone in happily every day. Iona has gone in happy but come home disappointed because she can't stay the whole day. From Monday she'll be able to stay the whole day & with much pleasure she'll be able to have a packed lunch straight out of her princess lunch box! The walk to school has worked out ok & takes about 15-20 minutes depending on how energetic we're feeling. So all in all it's been good. The kids like the school so Mommy's happy :-)

Goodbye Millie.

Sadly our little hamster, Millie (aka mrs hamster) died this weekend. The eldest 3 children were at their Dad's house & I checked on her on Saturday afternoon & she had died. We made her a little box & on Sunday the kids buried her in the garden. We only had Millie for around 6-8 months & had 'adopted' her from a friend of a friend. Not sure exactly how old she was but she was about 2.5 years old at least we think. So good bye Millie :-(
