Feeling Lost When Your Children Start School

feeling lost when children started school

I’ve been feeling a bit lost recently – well, since the twiglets started school really. I haven’t been able to put my finger on exactly why. It’s like there’s something niggling at the back of my mind but I can’t quite manage to bring it to the forefront so I can work out what it actually is. The other evening I was feeling this way and suddenly found myself saying to the husband: ‘There’s just no point to me anymore.’ I didn’t even really know what I meant – it just came out.

Having an LVL Lash Lift

LVL Lash Lift

If you know me, you may well know that I am not really one for beauty treatments as a rule. I LOVE a massage (though I rarely have them), I get my nails done every so often, but that’s about it.

How do you cope when your child prefers your partner to you?

(If you follow me on Instagram, you may already know that!) So I thought I’d just write a little update on how it’s going and how they’re settling in.

Getting Ready For School

Hi there! So at the moment we are balls deep in getting ready for school. The twiglets will be starting Reception in September – just a short few weeks! As they’re my first (and last!) to start school, this is all new to me and I’m learning as I go. But I just thought I’d share some of the things I’m doing and buying in case they might be of use to anyone. I’m sure none of it will be revolutionary and will most likely be stuff you’ve read before and/or are doing anyway. But I’ve been enjoying reading people’s posts about this topic so thought I’d just share our little journey too.
