When I gave up work two years ago to care for Isabella full time we agreed that it would be until she started school. Well that day is today. I feel both sad and excited for both of us. For her school may seem a scary place but she is bright and I know she will absorb knowledge like a sponge, have lots of friends and embrace all the experiences that school will bring her way. For me it means I have to find a job! We have been joking about this for months but here it is. I am looking into volunteering until the right job comes my way and will spend some time crafting and sorting out the house. I will miss our trips to the park, Drusillas and The Mini Railway in Eastbourne. I will miss our crafty days painting, sticking and baking but I hope they have provided the groundwork for her to survive and bloom.
