a dangerous walk to school…
I was walking this morning taking Kaleb to school, he was doing his ‘slow’ walk which is very similar to his normal walk but even slower (if that is possible?!). When I walk to pick him up it is a fairly quick 15 minutes, but when I have him with me it is easily halfContinue reading “a dangerous walk to school…”

A lesson in fun… (seems a better title)
I worked in the nursery this morning, or I should say I played in the nursery today. I had been dreading it a little to be honest, I am with kids all day every day, I listen to screams and watch falling tears for a total of 11 hours a day 7 days a week.Continue reading “A lesson in fun… (seems a better title)”
