Memories.........

Sorry about the tiny photos, I had to nick them from the internet and cannot resize them for the life of me!





Whilst cycling through the park this morning on the way to pre-school, enjoying the sunshine with Kit singing one of her made-up songs behind me it suddenly struck me. Only a few more months of this and my baby will be at school. Why does life have to whizz by at such a pace?....................

Hello Julia! I have just discovered your blog and will be coming again! Life certainly does fly by and we have to savour every moment. I remember when my little boy started pre-school as though it were yesterday. He is 9 years old now!

Aww Julia,

I know what feeling oh to well. We just have to grin and bear it, smile at their little faces disappearing into the class room and turn and cry all the way home. Then clock watch until it's time to collect them. Bring them home with arm fulls of art work and letters lol
And do it all again the next day.
Chin up honey, think of the sewing time you'll have and special times together will mean so much more.

Hugs.

We're coming to Cheltenham next weekend the 28th- 30th if you're around for coffee give me call 07914092726 would be lovely to see you again.

Hi Julia,
I know what you mean, when you have kids it really does fly by. My little girl will be in full time school next January and I know I'm going to miss her dreadfully.

Oh I know the feeling as well Julia. The time just seems to fly by. Tomorrow we are travelling a few hours from home as my daughter has a University tour appt.She been accepted into the Masters Program which means moving away from home. Even though she is 23 it's still one of those milestone moments.

That brings back memories. My oldest son used to sing to me on the way to school too. Now he's a big bearded 22 year old man.

Hi Julia, I know how you feel. I'm literally counting the days until my wee man skips off to school and it's a year and a half away. Just think of all those precious moments you are capturing with them through your blog and how you will be able to embarass them later in life!

I know, it just sort of sneaks up doesn't it. I was in Islington this week (re your last post) didn't realise the show was held there. Seems to be quite a trendy area (we were told). It's always hard to tell from a Jury's Inn.

Oh dear, the school run, so daunting. Anyway plently of time for fun yet, wishing you and yours a lovely Easter.

Time does fly by with little ones and those moments seem so special my daughters just started pre-school but I still have baby Elliott at home so it's a nice break to just have one for afew hours!He's just started walking and it's great but sad as he's losing all his babyness and turning into this little man so quickly!
