Back to school?

This one is for parents, but how have you found the kids going back?

Celebrations or trepidations?

It was a mixed bag here as my daughter loved it straight away but it was my son's first week ever in school last week and first day today.

Last week involved lots of short sessions and it was a very tiring week if going back and forth to the school every day 4 times. And the childminder's as well.

But overall they both seem happy and the school seem to be dealing with everything sensibly.

I know some people have been worried about how safe school is but I'm not too concerned as children seem so unaffected by the virus anyway.

Young children can't socially distance so you have to accept that really!

Next week will be much easier when they're both back full time, and in fact it'll feel like a holiday for me! I will have so much more time to work. This last week was crazy.

Getting that peace and quiet back in the house is amazing isn't it? It will definoetly affect how a lot of people work.

How's it going at your children's school?
