Sunny Sunday...

I wonder how many more 'sunny Sundays' we are going to get this year?  There is a definite chill in the air on a morning now and it's dark by 8pm.

Leaves are starting to fall and there are different types of seed heads blowing in the breeze looking for somewhere to settle until next Spring.

We had our first Barbecue today and I think it will probably be the last too. Soon it will be time to snuggle up on the sofa with woolly blankets ........... not just yet though. There is still time to get out and about and make the most of the last of Summer .

All Done For Another Year

So that's it ...... six weeks holiday done and dusted. The boys went back to school today and I have to admit I do feel a little sad .
Back to the routine of 7am alarms, lunch boxes and the walking back from school bickering.

First day and already the homework has started for Milo... ten minutes reading every night , luckily that won't be a problem as the boy does love to read  but the extra so called twenty minutes every night for math and english along with spellings on top of that does seem just a bit excessive for an 8 year old I think.

I'd be interested to know what kind of homework your child gets , do you think it's a bit much?
