A bit of a pants week.

This week has been really hard work. It was my first week back at work after the summer holidays (11 weeks off) and I returned to a course in Birmingham, meaning I had to leave before 7am each day. Tim was also away for a few days so it meant a lot of juggling children. Patrick has, luckily, settled into school life really well and took to going to Pat, the childminder's, equally well (I think this is helped by the fact that "she gives me toast and biscuits"). He is completely worn out now though and after a week and a half of school I think we're all ready for half term!

On Friday night I suffered from a very uncharacteristic case of being sociable and, together with another mum, organised a Class 1 getting to know you night at the local pub (mums not children). I have to say that I was lead astray and completely blame the other mums for my struggling home at past midnight.

The weekend was a very lazy affair - Bike rides, walks, ice creams, beer gardens and a visit to the magic climbing tree.
