Project 365 and Diary Update 2014 Week 36

Another week. Another school year.

I cannot believe we’re here already. September, and heading into Autumn. This year is going so fast, in fact I’m sure the years are going faster now than at any other time! Someone needs to put on the brakes!

This season is a little bittersweet for me. It’s as though I’m mourning the summer that has gone and losing my children as they go back to school, but at the same time loving everything Autumn… the amazing colours of the trees, looking forward to cosy evenings and the build up to Halloween and Christmas, both of which I love!

I’ve heard the weather is going to be reasonably good this month though, so I want to make the most of it and get out with the kids as much as I can!

Here is my week 36

clarks school shoes

Day 243 – School shoe shopping in Clarks. My twins took ages to allow to the shop assistant near their feet. Don’t let the innocent little face fool you. This was an ordeal!


Day 244 – Last day of summer holidays and we spent it getting organised for school and chilling out at home. This is my Dad’s dog getting a tummy rub!

Day 245 – First day back at school. This was at pick up time and playing on the school grounds, as we always do when the weather is lovely. The boys had a great day, which was a relief after a very bad start in the morning. They had screamed and had to be prized off me 🙁


Day 246 – Another school pic, I love where my children’s school is. It has extensive playing fields and looks out onto more fields and trees in the distance. I enjoy hanging around after school, not for that long, but long enough for most people to leave whilst I chat to other mums or just with my children. It feels peaceful somehow and the kids love to play for a while.


Day 247 – Playing in the garden

Day 248 – Keeping the twins amused while my daughter has her tutor session. I usually leave them at home but had no one to look after them on this day and it wasn’t worth going home so we waited in the car!


 Day 249 – The birthday parties for this school year have started already. This was a little boy in the twins class who was turning 6. Bless my little lads, they’ve only just celebrated their 5th birthday!!

Hope you all had a good week. Click on the badge below to read other Project 365 posts 🙂

  1. gosh you were busy this week .. you put me to shame lovely! .. i love the waiting in the car pic, looks like they didnt do too bad! x

  2. Argh school shoe shopping… can be a nightmare if you aren’t prepared! Some fab images 🙂 x

  3. I think it is lovely that your school encourage hanging around and that the children see the school as peaceful and a fun place to play, hopefully should make going to school time a bit easier, though it does not sound like it. Hope they settle for you.
    Birthday parties….they should be banned….think ll parents dread them yet feel “bullied” into doing them cos “everybody else gets one”

  4. I adore that playground shadow photograph, simply wonderful and so obviously an Autumn photo.

    Thanks for linking up to Project 365.

  5. Sweet sweet dog. You are so lucky to have twins. What a beautiful school.
