School places

When we moved here last year, we noticed that there was a school being built right across the road and said how it would be perfect for when the twins start school.

We were told it was going to be only open to the lower years for a while, but because there are so many children without school places on the island they had to open it up as a full school straight away.

After a few months of Noah being in Y3 we decided we no longer liked the school he was in and wanted him to go to this school, after finding out it had a waiting list, I decided there was no harm in putting his name down.

A few months later and Noah gets an amazing new teacher and has made some best friends, his learning has improved we no longer want him to change schools.
We are moving up to Suffolk / Norfolk next summer so again he'll be faced with yet another upheaval and be forced into a new school and to start from scratch. So it just wouldn't be fair to move him now.

By the time we decided we'd no longer move Noah, the twins application forms had been sent off.
We did think because of Noah being in a different school, we'd be offered that but No.

They were offered the school across the road.


Noah in one school, the twins in another.

After thinking about it over night, its not the end of the world, and instead of going through the long appeal system to fight for a place they aren't going to keep for long, or keeping them home to home school them - something Jon said he'd help with.
Deep down I know that wont work for us.
I'm not patient enough and Jon is always busying doing other things.

 I'm going to accept their place and Jon and I will have to take it in turns to do the different school runs.
Working from home does have its benefits.

The boys will probably have friends from nursery going to the same school, so it will be nice for them to already know people.
From the schools website, it looks fantastic and that reminded me why I wanted Noah to go there.

Purple blazers and ties ...... The twins are going to look adorable!
Being able to just stroll across the road and be at school is something I've always wanted for the boys.
Something that is a must for when we move next summer.

Did you get your first choice?

Review || Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture

So its my cousins wedding this weekend and I'm having to make my legs suitable for public viewing! Usually my legs are hidden and the only leg skin that see the light of day are the bits that peak out behind the holes in my jeans.

I don't tend to get my legs out but when I do, I do like them to look good!
I'm pretty lazy when it comes to shaving my legs, and I will let them grow rather wildly if I have no reason to show them off! Obviously something Jon loves hates with a passion!
I was very kindly sent Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture , to try! The fact its an all in one really appealed to me, because.... I am..... a lazy shaver!

Potty Training Academy // Sticker Chart.

Ru has taken to potty training like a pro! He's had hardly any accidents and is no longer using nappies during the day.

I started him off in Bambino Mio training pants but after a day of a couple accidents he started taking himself to the toilet without any prompt from me.

I introduced him to his Potty Training Academy sticker chart on day one and he was very keen to fill it up, so even when he didn't need the loo, he would try and squeeze something out just to get a sticker.

We used both a toddler loo seat and the carry me potty, but he prefers to do his wee's just like his brothers...standing up. He sings putting out the fiiiire when he's weeing (god knows where he got that from! lol.) 

The first real test was sending him to nursery and seeing if he returned with a bag full of wet pants. I made sure the washing machine was free for his return but when he came home wearing the same outfit that he went in in was such a win.

The sticker chart was a great help with gett…
