Monday morning... back to school blues!

Well it's the second week back at school for most of us in the UK... and I'm sure I'm not alone in feeling like the summer is already a distant memory! Most traumatically, this new academic year brings two milestones, both signifying our cherubini are growing up! The eldest is doing work experience at her old primary school, seeing our baby dressed up like she was going to work made Grandad feel truly ancient. Then 'baby' Sam is starting nursery next week... our baby is not a baby anymore, he has a full school uniform (albeit a rather small one).  In all seriousness, it's a joy to see what lovely people they are growing into. They are all polite, considerate generally lovely people... and at least when Gabs hits her next milestone of learning to drive mammy and grandad's taxi service will get a bit of a break!
