Monday Coffee Morning: A Week of Hellos and Goodbyes

A little on the late side for morning coffee but I just saw this post by Miss Nerris and felt the urge to join in! Molly over at The Move to America has had a wonderful idea for a social link up with a Monday Coffee Morning where she shares what her week has in store for her. Nice idea huh?

So here's what my week looks like. It began with looking after a sick six year old and having to make alternative arrangements to get my three year old to nursery (thank you dear friend - you know who you are). My ill child then perked up no end this afternoon and so will be back at school tomorrow. Normality will be reinstated. Unless my three year old who was complaining of tummy ache at dinner time decides to run with the sickness baton......

It's the last week of school here this week before the six week long summer vacation begins. To add to that my eldest says goodbye to his current school so we'll be busy making mini fruit cakes tomorrow for his farewell 'party' on Wednesday. We'll be popping in to school for that and as soon as he's done with that he runs over to his new school next door to join his future group 3 class for their wisseluurtje (where they meet their new teacher and sit in their new classroom in preparation for September). He's already spent three mornings in his new school but this is goodbye and hello in the space of an hour. Quite the day for my six year old for sure.

Then we have one more full day at school and the whooping begins. Holiday time! No alarm setting on Friday. Nowhere to be. No obligations. Just six weeks before us of family time and fun. Or are my rose-coloured spectacles getting in the way of reality?

So how is your week looking?
