At last! – Weds 17th Sept 2014

By | September 17, 2014

The one way I can always tell if D has had a good day at school is the way she greets me at home time.

If she comes down the stairs with zero eye contact and zooms off for a corner, head down, then she’s either been storing up her negative emotions and is letting them out, or she’s been upset by something or someone on her way down.

If, however, she has a big smile and rushes at me, nearly bowling me over, then it’s been a good one. A way I hadn’t been greeted since she went back to school, until today.

It was lovely, apart from the nearly getting knocked over bit, she’s getting very strong!

T had a good day too, his timetable today consisted of two Art lessons with much lighter books to carry in between, so he was happy not to lug such a heavy bag around, unfortunately tomorrow makes up for it, definitely!

Anyway, T and D played being Minecraft characters as we walked back, sometimes chasing each other, all in very good nature. It was really, really nice.

Tomorrow will bring a longer day for D, with after school football and PE during the day, giving T and I a chance to catch up with a Costa trip (which will hopefully make up a bit for the heavier bag).

A great one here, I hope everyone’s had a good day too.

Aww! Sounds like a great day! Glad to hear D had a great day!
Carrying books around is awful…..My girl has finally got a locker to store them in….It’s made her life a lot easier at school.

Thanks, T jokes that he’s going to have sloping shoulders by the end of term, he’s probably right!
