Life is moving way to fast..

So I haven't blogged since September and it's now almost end of November... Where the hell is time going?

I have 3 kids still at school in Years 11, 9 and 6.  Last year of Primary school for Cassandra and Alex is in his last year at Secondary school.  He's finding it tough already, being in final GCSE year, but with family support I have every belief that he'll do well and get into college as he plans.

At the beginning of October, like her brothers before her, Cassandra ventured off on her Yr6 week residential to Hilltop, up in Norfolk for the week.  She was super excited, coped admirably well and took advantage of every exciting activity on offer including crate stacking with her friend Julia. 

A good few weeks ago now, Nicholas was diagnosed with Osgood-Schlatter disease with is an inflammation of the patellar ligament at the tibial tuberoisy.  In layman's terms that means that he has a rather painful bump just below the knee which gets worse with activity and better with rest.  As you can imagine, telling my rather active young man that he can't play football for bit went down like a lead balloon.  However, after physio and constantly doing some exercises, he's back playing, just on restricted play time.

Alexander is really enjoying his fencing at the moment.  Mum even came along with us the other week to watch him train and Alex really liked trying to explain it all to her!

So all in all, life goes on. I best get back to my school work!
