Its been a year since my daughter started school in Reception class and I’m back at the school uniform shop. This time I’m shopping for youngest child who (gulp and hold back the tears) is starting his Reception year this September. It's going to be a massive shock to have both children going to school together every morning and it will be so quiet in the house during my working day on my own. Much as I wish for that quiet time now, as I have a chattering child with me I know I’m going to miss it so much. I’m certainly going to be seeing my baby into school with a tear in my eye, come September, but first we have survive the summer holidays, perhaps by then the silence at home will seem less lonely.
