Brrrr, here's to freezing conditions again! I thought we had turned a corner with the weather, but not to be, Maybe next week!
As you know on Tuesday we were anxiously waiting for news of the 'chosen' secondary school..........and we got it, phew, but not without some trauma as the day went on. We had applied online and if you applied in this way, you would get an email notification letting you know. I thought this might happen first thing in the morning. As I sit at a laptop all day and get emails throughout, my heart kept jumping every time an email came through.
By 11am I still hadn't hear anything, so thought I'd phone the council who told me that the notification would arrive some time that day. The afternoon arrived and I had to pick the boy's up from school. I put my phone on silent whilst driving as I get emails on my phone too. Picked the boy's up, still nothing. We got to a set of traffic lights which had just turned red and I know we have about 3 mins before going green. Made the mistake of looking at my phone and there it was 'Web Admissions Application'.
Chucked the phone at Toby and asked him to read it out. Oooooooh, I was a happy bunny when he said he had been 'Allocated' at the chosen school.
We then discovered later that evening that his close friend who actually lives 275 yards from our front door - didn't get in............That's how close it was to us not getting in 2 7 5 yards. Can you believe it? I felt quite sick to the stomach.
So that's that. Hopefully we won't have to go through the same stress when it comes to Jack's turn in a couple of years.
Work for obvious reasons has gone out of the window this week, but I have started on something new - here's a sneek peek
Do you also like my new friend. I couldn't resist picking him up a while ago.
Hobbycraft have still come up trumps with their Easter related goodies. Not sure what I'm going to do with them, but they're injecting some wanted colour at the moment.
Have a good weekend and see you next week!
