Like last year, I am attempting a Summer Manifesto. (Ali Edwards has updated her product and offers a free 2013 title page.) Last year's album was a hit with The Boy Child; so much so that he took it into school one week for Show and Tell.
We are having a two-week holiday to Orlando, Florida. To the land of all things Disney. And the possibility of meeting Mrs Magpie.
We had thought we might be moving house, but things have changed. More on that in a later post.
We have to say goodbye to our American friends, as they are returning to the US. Hello to long weekends in New York City. (Robyn, are you listening?)
We have to say goodbye to friends who are moving to Morocco for four years with the husband's job.
The Boy Child is spending a week with Granny. By himself. Just him and Granny. What will I do with myself?
There will be the usual days out.
There will be summer holiday homework and preparing for Year Two.
It's going to be great.
