September cycling and a ‘Ta-dah’

Well, the new school term has started and the children are back to school and routine. My 5 year old son has settled into his new class brilliantly, without so much as a complaint. Its been a big upheaval, as it is a new school for him and new classmates. Understandably difficult for any child to cope with, not least for a child who has Aspergers Syndrome (a form of Autism). Am I proud? You bet. My 4 year old daughter has also started at the same school, just one classroom down from her brother, and is finding her way, her way. She’s testing the boundaries, as a lot of children are, but is finding the whole experience exciting and new and on the whole, enjoyable. Yes, they’re both doing great and I’m sure it will continue. They certainly both look incredibly smart dressed in their matching school uniforms, its lovely to see them going in together.

This new school has meant that we have had to re-think our morning school run arrangements. The last school was further away, set back from a 60mph road and without a safe cycling or walking route, therefore the journey had to be made by car most of the time. However, the new school is much closer, so we have been making the most of the electric bicycle and the kiddie trailer! I have to say that I am loving the crisp, slightly autumnal air first thing in the morning and that in the last 2 weeks, I have completed half of the school run journeys on bicycle, another couple on foot, with just a few by car. Yay! It feels great and I’m loving the exercise!

My ‘Ta-dah’ is a lovely little amigurumi mermaid doll that I finished making today for my 4 year old. I’m really rather pleased with her. The pattern was from Etsy and was brilliantly easy to follow. My daughter is mesmerised with her!

I’m off now for a week in Cornwall. I would like to say that it is a welcome break and that I’m looking forward to it, the truth is that I’m not really, but I’m going to try to make the best of it!

Bye for now x

    Well done to your lovely children! And to you too, on all that cycling. I need to do more with the trailer, having nearly passed out at how much it cost to fill my little Clio with diesel.

    I hope you find something to love in Cornwall, but I’m sure you will find delight in your childrens pleasure.
