The summer holidays are drawing to a close. The parents are on the home stretch counting down the days until school begins. Whilst the children have a mixture of emotions. Part of them wants to return to school to see their friends, whilst the other part never wants summer to end.

I’m currently in the middle, I long for my routine back yet have enjoyed so many wonderful days out with the children. Playing in the garden, reading books together and snuggle down for movies that I don’t want summer to end.
