Today was spent shopping for last bits and pieces for Claire's hospital bag. 
We went into Crawley and started our day with breakfast at Debenhams before hitting the shops. Claire made a start on some Christmas shopping for Baby :o) and, needless to say, I got a couple of things as well ;o).  The morning flew past and it was nearly 2pm by the time we got home. Just a couple of things to pick up locally tomorrow morning and she'll be set to go at a moment's notice.

This evening was Emily's parents evening at school and I'm so glad I'd asked her to book appointments for as early as possible. We started at 4.35pm and finished at 6.15pm. We got to see a few extra teachers (that Emily hadn't got appointments with) and all the ones she had booked me in to see. The report back from each and every one was excellent. I'm so proud of her and the way she applies herself to her school work. She enjoys learning (and has done since she was little) and enjoys doing well in her subjects. After half term we'll have an evening at the school to look at all the options she has for her GCSEs. She's in a position where all the teachers would like her to choose their subject as a GCSE and she's battling as she would like to do more GCSEs than she has options. She's going to have to give it careful consideration before handing in her final selection just before Christmas. Well done Emily and keep up the good work :o)


  1. How fun to be shopping for a new little one for Christmas! You girls are going to have so much fun.

    And well done, Emily!!! xo

    You must be so proud of Emily...well done to her.

  3. Good for Emily :-) We had a successful parents' evening this week too - it's a nice feeling!

    And yay for fun shopping and preparation, now it's just waiting....
