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.

And dealing with the behaviour of two of them at once is, erm, intense to say the least.

Recently I’ve seen quite a few posts all about planning out the summer holidays. I don’t mean like holidays abroad – I mean the loooong six-week summer holiday break from school or nursery. Obviously a lot of parents will be working for some or all of it but I’ve noticed that many of those who aren’t seem to be EXTREMELY organised. I’ve seen people drawing out charts and tables, showing each day meticulously planned out with detailed, structured activities. Now I love a bit of colour coding as much as the next person, but do you know what I feel when I look at some of these posts? PRESSURE…

Our Majorca TUI Family Life Holiday

TUI Family Life Majorca

Hi there! I’ve had a few people asking on Instagram about our recent holiday to Majorca, in particular about the TUI Family Life hotel we stayed in (the Coma Gran in Sa Coma).
